This is awesome! The teachers here really put in the effort to teach. They are willing to put in their personal time to tutor students to make sure that the students understand new and old concepts. There are a variety of clubs and organizations. There is diversity among the clubs and organizations also. The culture here is welcoming and warm. Students, faculty, teachers, and staff, in general, are hard working and try their best to help make students meet their full potential. Additionally, there are plenty of sports. There is something for everyone to do or participate in and if someone has their own idea for an organization, then the process to start the organization is super easy.

Glen Allen offers motivated teachers and genuine school spirit. The school is always clean, and the track and athletic fields are well-maintained. Teachers are young and enthusiastic. The school has a variety of clubs that support an accepting environment, like Circle of Friends and Girl Up. Glen Allen is very special-ed friendly as well. They provide several opportunities for special-ed students to interact with neurotically ones, such as their All-Star basketball team, All-Star Prom, and Breakfast Club.
Glen Allen High School is a School with very good educational system and has lots of various and unique classes. When I first came to Glen Allen it looked very different from other schools because it was a new school and I loved it at first sight. Through my freshman, sophomore, and junior year here, I’ve met a ton of new friends, most of the teachers are over-the-top awesome and cooperative with all their students and prepare them for college and for the real world using basic subjects like math, science, English, and history.
