The overall experience at the high school has been great! I've met so many new and interesting people while attending GHS. There are many clubs for students with a wide variety of interests to enjoy. As with most high schools there are good and bad teachers but in my experiences the vast majority of my teachers have been fantastic!

I really enjoyed my time here at GHS. The teachers really care about what they teach, and even though some can be very tough, you’ll get through it. I have come across the occasional teacher that doesn’t click with me, but it is never a total and complete disaster. The students are nice and accepting, though not very diverse. The school is very liberal oriented, since that it where I tend to swing, it doesn’t bother me too much, but I’ve known some more right winged people who have felt their views targeted against, so be prepared for that. Extracurriculars are great, and it makes it very easy to find a good crew. The school offers a lot of great programs that I really believe help me succeed in my 4 years here. :)
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.
