I attended Glen Burnie High School through the BMAH, biomedical allied health, program. I went into this program expecting new opportunities, but instead I got a completely different view of high school. I used to love school and Glen Burnie started to make me fear going to school. I was scared to go, I would beg my parents to put me into a different school and take me home. The restrooms were constantly covered in trash while students were smoking in them. Administration did NOTHING. One day I left my classroom early (I was walking my injured friend to her class, because of her injury, we got to leave 3 minutes earlier) I was attacked by another student in the hallway. It took administration 2 minutes to get the student off of me and into another classroom. Throughout the year there are tons of fights, too many to keep count. This school is super unsanitary, and lacks safety.
Review Glen Burnie High School
Glen Burnie is making progress and the administration and teachers truly care about making the school a good place to be and preparing students to graduate and beyond. The school has over half of its population requiring free/reduced meals and used to suffer from poor graduation rates, but their focus has been on improving graduation rates and helping those students that would not have succeeded before - because of that focus, the students without problems don't feel the same attention, and school spirit is not the best.
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!
