Glacier High School Reviews
Glacier High School is a great place to start something new, whether its going to school or becoming a teacher. I started out their as a freshman and am about to finish my senior year. Glacier has a great environment with friendly staff and excelling students. They try and keep everybody involved with activities, clubs, etc, and do a great job with keeping everybody up to date with it all. There staff is all friendly and helpful. One thing that I would change is probably the principle. Glacier had the opportunity to hire a new principle after there starting principle of I believe 11 years retired after my sophomore year. Our new principle is great, but since he is new he is a little bit hard on the students. I will say it was great that he used to work at Glacier before he became the principle because he already had a good reputation. Overall Glacier High School is a great high school to consider going to because of it's excellent staff and their phenomenal students.
Glacier High School is definitely the best high school in the valley, and it offers what it can for a small town school, but is lacking in opportunity for taking accelerated classes during the first three years, especially the first two. The school does a good job supporting its extracurricular activities and other programs, and most of the teachers are passionate about what they teach. However, being completely honest there needs to be some improvement in the math and science department, which is home to some of the best teachers in the school, like Mr. Young and Mrs. Espeseth, but a handful of extremely poor ones who I will not name that taint the students perception of the department.
Glacier High School is a very nice and new school. It is about twelve or thirteen years old. It has great learning resources and amazing courses academically. The sports programs are pretty political and played part in me not playing basketball throughout high school. Most of the clubs I have participated in have been lots of fun, and there are some great teachers.
