My overall experience at Glen Burnie high school has been an amazing, yet complicated experience. Coming into Glen Burnie as a freshman was so stressful! The school is so big, we have 5 buildings that you have to learn. It wasn't the easiest. Being the biggest school in Anne Arundel county, and being 1 of a little over 2,000 students was crazy. It was actually very very easy to learn. My favorite part of Glen Burnie is the community overall. Yes we have the kids that smoke in the bathroom or the students that can't follow rules to save their lives but when it came to an issue with the school or someone in the school.. the whole student body including the faculty come together as one and work together to solve the issue. We are one big family. Like any other school we have cliques but the thing about Glen Burnie is even though we have cliques, we all get along. We don't exclude anyone no matter their race, ethnicity, what they wear, if their smart or not. That doesn't matter! I would chose this school again because we are a family and no matter what the news, or other schools have to say about us.. we are awesome!
Review Glen Burnie High School
Glen Burnie High School is a decent public high school with great teachers and staff. Many of the students, however, are not so great. After 4 years of attending the school, I can say with no doubt that most of the students are disruptive, occasionally violent, ill-mouthed and messy. But, as long as you can take higher level classes and stay focused you shouldn't have too much of a problem. The cafeteria food is decent but there is much concern over the cleanliness of the bathrooms and hallways.
This school has many ups and downs as expected from such a large school. Educationally, there are classes that are complete jokes or treated as jokes by the teachers and it makes the whole experience worse. But there are also great classes that are fun and very educational. The after school activities are something to admire here, being a part of the dance clubs was the best decision I made. You make a lot of friends in these types of activities, many people do sports or drama and become great friends within those groups. For me, being in dance classes definitely challenged me to become not only a better dancer but to become a better person - and to become something bigger than myself. I would go to this school again if I could do it over, and I'd probably get involved in even more activities.
