Glendora Unified School District is made up of a community of educators who value resources, collaboration, and development. While attending Glendora High School, I was impressed by teachers and directors who valued the student as a whole. Teachers take their job seriously, and strive to invest in their students, helping them grow academically, mentally, and socially. Glendora Unified is a great district, highly sought after. I transferred from Charter Oak School District mainly to partake in the choir program offered at the high school. Glendora has great resources, and is in a great area. Highly recommend for your student!

I did not find out that I had a disability until I was in 8th grade even though I had had it for a while. When I was in high school most of my teachers did great working with my disabilities and helping me. There were a couple times that I had issues with my disability one year and I also had issues with my counselors. Other than some hiccups, Glendora Unified School District is very good.!
Glendora has a good school district and rating while staying a community friendly environment. Id say the schools are good because of the safety there is. However it is behind on technology, school have limited computers per class or subject and must share on schedule. Student are expected to have technology and wifi access at home. Also, libraries (specifically the high school) have old and poor functioning computers for student use.
