Our high school is in very good standing academically and is prestigious because of that but, often times it feels like the school’s soul concern is our test scores so sometimes it feels like the information we are receiving is very rushed or forced and the teaching quality can lack because of this. Fantastic band program and the majority of the staff is friendly

I loved how the community in the school was it wasn’t hard getting to know people and build friendships it was a great experience as a freshman, the school introduces you into high school before shifting to high gear before you know it but as a senior the only thing I want to see changed is the lunch periods because Glasgow is the 6th ranked school in the state in academic standards they’re main priorities are making sure your life is on track to a prosperous future but they focus on that too much and not enough on other aspects of high school but I couldn’t complain I was able to enjoy high school and now I will be able to graduate with a promising high school diploma.
Glasgow High School is a widely diverse community that emphasizes the importance of academics and athletics. One thing that could be better is the individual programs, such as the medical program that was shut down half-way through which left students somewhat stranded. (Or having to start over in a new program). However, Glasgow High School is a great school overall.
