I went to GBE and I have just recently graduated. The ability to come into GBE and feel the positive when walking in is one of the things that I miss the most. It gave me the ability to be excited to for all of the student functions. We are a very supportive school. I think that all the students at GBE love being there. For all of the other Glenbard schools, they are also close. Whether that is in difference from each other and all the students from each school are very close.

It's been an amazing journey, many friendly staff, teachers and students! We all treat each other as family under one big greater umbrella.
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.
