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.
I did not enjoy attending GHS. GHS is a big school setting with many students and the students were very cliquey and rude and they felt entitle to things. However, the faculty really care about the well being and success for their students. I also like how supportive the student body is, the sporting events were fun to go to and the school really shows school spirit. I like how the school is very clean and there a few graffiti spots. The students respect school property so it was a very pleasant environment to be in. Also, their music and arts program is phenomenal. I felt like I was apart of a family participating in the music department.
The overall quality of teachers come in all different types of styles which is good, because then you could learn things different ways and know how to do a specif thing many different ways due to the different teaching styles of the teachers. The knowledge of the teachers teaching their subject is very high, from what I've experienced throughout my 4 years at GHS is that most, if not all, the teachers are very high educated about their topics and the subject that they teach us. The teachers interest in the students is good enough for us all to have a great school year and a great experience learning from the teachers. Even though not all the teachers are consistent when grading tests (aka half the math department), if you remind them once in a while, they will get it done asap.
