Glastonbury High School Reviews
Honestly, my experience at GHS so far has been average. When I got into Phillips Exeter, I thought that is was selfish to ignore the wide variety of opportunities handed to me at home, and now as I write this, I should've just gone to boarding school. Popularity is based on whether you're white, athletic, and how you dress. Everyone here is extremely fake, as well. My friends are all older than me, which leaves me kind of worried for when I graduate. I will say the education here is excellent, aside from the Geometry L1 (Honors) curriculum, although I think they're changing it. This school isn't for you if you're a minority, because bigotry is condoned here. While students in this school ARE left-leaning, many keep their mouths shut when they others saying chauvinistic/prejudiced things. It's truly appalling. So, yes, while Glastonbury High School IS superb academically & athletically - its people and social aspect are not.
Glastonbury High School is an excellent school. Great education, amazing students, wonderful teachers, and a fantastic sports program. Our music & arts program is good but unpopular and the food isn't great. The school is very safe and clean. The students are average, but our school spirit is AMAZING!! There are a ton of marvelous clubs at GHS, like Women's Empowerment Club, Straight Gay Alliance Club, Cultural Diversity Club, and Peer Educators. I enjoy going to Glastonbury High School and it's definitely prepared me for college.
Glastonbury High School provided me with some unique opportunities. I was able to take Russian for four years and along with my regular academics, I also was part of the Regional Agricultural Science Program. I would like to see Glastonbury High School embrace the AgScience program by awarding Level 1/AP status to some of the more challenging classes. I would like to see the school integrate scheduling better so that students in the Ag program don't have to give up classes because the scheduling is an issue.
