Glenbrook High Schools District 225 Reviews
The administration, deans and teachers do not want to acknowledge or manage the pervasive bullying occurring in their high schools, they just sweep it under the rug. How does this help eliminate the problem? Do you realize how many students DONT report being bullied or having seen bullying behavior because they know you wont address it and thus the bully is fueled with energy to continue, no repercussions for those that bully?!
As a sophomore at GBN, I have yet to experience the complete high school journey. In my freshman year, I had an unpleasant encounter with a teacher. The situation was slightly racist as she only pointed my fault out despite my other white classmates doing the same exact action. The teacher then proceeded to get very close to my face which was very concerning as this situation took place during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Going off of this experience, I think it is very important to note the lack of diversity. The school has a predominately white population. Along with this, the teachers often assign a heavy load of work but do provide help if needed. Moving on to sports, a new student can feel very left out as it is can be based off of connections. Overall, GBN can be a stressful environment that needs to be more about supporting the students rather than strictly academics.
I was a transfer student in my sophomore year and did not have the best experiences. My old town was a small, tight-knit community of about 200 students per grade and whenever there was a new student, everyone would try to meet them and figure out whether or not that student would fit into their group. Either way, everyone eventually found a crowd and then became integrated into the community. At GBS, I never felt that way. I was just another face in the crowd and nobody knew who you were, nor did they care. While the teachers were very helpful in terms of getting through the school year academically, socially I felt very distant from everyone. I tried out new clubs, I tried to meet kids at lunch, and I tried to talk to people in my classes. Half of the students judged me for trying to be a little outgoing and the other half were already had their own friends. There was a point where I just stopped trying to meet new people and just tried to get through the school year.
