My overall experience with Glasgow High School has been rather pleasant. I know that the teachers truly care about me, my success, and my wellbeing. I have had the opportunity to experience things through Glasgow High School that I would not have had the opportunity to previously such as college fairs. The ACT prep classes have helped me improve my scores. We are pushed to succeed (even though a large factor is making the school look good. The school greatly prioritizes its status, sometimes too much). Personally, I would scale back on the emphasis on standardized testing.

My experience with Glasgow High School has been very good. These past four years have held a special place in my heart with all of the memories, friends, and school spirit that I have acquired at my time at Glasgow. Not only has Glasgow prepared me academically for college but also socially, as I am very involved in my school through different clubs and organizations, specifically service related.
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
