Great high school spirit. Administration deeply cares about students. Teachers highly educated and challenge students. Sports popular and available to junior varsity and varsity. I would improve some relationship between teachers on one side and parents and students on the other. Some teachers are not delivering material well enough and do not follow up to see if students understand what they teach. This looks like some specific teachers are not passionate about their work. Majority of the teachers do care about how their material reaches the students.
I would like to see better food. This is a big issue especialy for kids who do sports because not all the kids have time to pack there lunch so when the school food isnt good they just don't eat. This is not good because going to practice with no food can make you feel sick and dizzy. I would also like to see some more teaching. Some of the teachers just give you an assignment and tell you to go and do it while they sit on their phone or computer. This makes learning very difficult since we have no verbal lessons. Some kids learn better verbally. Lastly the school should clean more often. I am in band and we are not allowed to eat ing there but somehow the floors still are always sticky amd gross. Furthermore some of the bathrooms are seldomly cleaned. The bathrooms have toliet paper all over the floor, sicky floors, and are just plain nasty. It would be great if we could see all these changes at Glenbard.
