Glastonbury High School Reviews

Glastonbury High School (GHS) did a great job of preparing my children for college. The preparation for Spanish was outstanding as my youngest son took Level 2 Spanish and tested out of an entire year of college Spanish. Conversely, in both science and mathematics there are no Level 1, or weighted, options for classes such as Biology, Physics and Calculus. This forces students to choose between Advanced Placement (AP) college level classes or Level 2 basic classes. Not all children can handle the rigor of AP classes but still want to be challenged. As all children are different with regards to abilities and personalities, I believe that their learning should be tailored to fit them instead of putting them in groups that don't address their strengths.

Glastonbury offers an excellent education program for students K-12. But, there are clears flaws in the system that are not being addressed. For example, as a student who participated in theater programs through Glastonbury High School, it felt as though there was a strong bias towards sports funding compared to arts funding. This leads to a disappointing extracurricular experience. Overall, I do value the education I received at GHS.
Glastonbury High School adequately provides students with the resources they need to pave their road to success. The classes, staff, and activities all support students and cater to every students need.
