E.C. Glass High School Reviews

E.C. Glass is a great school with plenty of opportunity! There are many clubs and sports to be part of and find something you like. The lack of communication within the higher ranks is frustrating and should be heavily analyzed. The schools culture can be a little cliche-y as most high school but it has caused problems in the past but, if you have the right intention and you are ready to learn and take matters in you own hands, the school is a great asset.
Review E.C. Glass High School
The thing that I really like about E.C Glass High School is the diversity of the school population. The school really makes you feel at home and also get you prepared for the next level whether its trade school or a 4 year College or University. Glass also has a lot of clubs and activities you can get into, and the sports here are good. The thing that could change about Glass is the teachers interaction with the students, I feel like the teacher do not respect the students enough, now some teachers are wonderful but the faculty of Glass can be changed a little bit . Glass Nutrition and Lunch system could be better and more sanitary. All in all Glass in a good school to become apart of and the whole Glass environment feels very safe for people all around.
E. C Glass is the only highschool I've ever been to. I give it a three due to it's impact over intent on behalf of the administation and some teachers. I believe that the belief that AP classes ultimately result in a more intelligent and college ready student is genuine but a fallasy. As a result the only people reaping the rewards of these overstressed, over worked students are testing services and some "higher up" members of the administration. However, with all of this considered I can honestly say that I have met teachers in my three and half years that have changed my life for the better. My last critque being the math depaertment, yikes.
