Glenbard Township High School District No. 87 Reviews

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.

I feel that our school district fostered success in each and every student attending high school. Engaging teenagers in the everyday motions of school is a near insurmountable challenge, yet the school district -- with the help of hundreds of faculty members -- was able to overcome this obstacle. From the theater program, to the fine arts displays, to our dozen state champion teams, to the plethora of fives received by students on the annual AP exams...our school district excels. Though my one critique of this prestigious environment is that at times the level of competition between students can become unhealthy. When grades on quizzes and standardized test scores become the end-all-be-all, insecurities and bitterness begin to churn within the student-body. This may be rectified by placing a bit less emphasis on testing and a bit more on the learning process itself; this could potentially enrich the curriculum and one's high school experience as a whole.
I am currently in the midst of my senior year at Glenbard North High school. Throughout my 4 years at this school I have enjoyed myself very much. The faculty is great, always available when needed. The Deans are also very nice and always will direct you in the right way. I may be a bit biased but Dr.John Mensik is also the greatest principle that I've ever had the chance to meet. Great man that wants the best for all of his students! Glenbard North Athletics are a great thing as well. Playing a sport with your good friends and having a good time as well. Nothing beats that!
