I loved my time at Glenbrook South High School. This school is dedicated to making everyone feel welcome and helping them find their place. From the first day of freshman orientation, you are told over and over again that joining clubs and other school-wide activities is the thing to do! The academics are fantastic and prepare any student for the next step after high school. The spirit and pride of being a Titan is an exciting part as well! The home games and sprit weeks are some of the most fun I had in high school. GBS's support of the arts is something to admire as well. From advertising musicals and talent shows to school-wide previews for both of these events. In my opinion, there is no better high school in the Northshore.

Glenbrook South High School is an absolutely fantastic institution. At GBS there are countless opportunities to get involved and discover who you are. I highly encourage anyone to take advantage of the opportunities presented to you because they won't last forever! The teachers are all great instructors as well as real people who care about you as a person. I've formed many relationships with teachers here and have the pleasure of calling some of them my friends.
My time at Glenbrook South High School was an eye opening and pleasant experience for me. My own expansion of my perceptions broadened as I have learned so much about my fellow graduating class. Particularly, I have learned that through this high school, everybody has personal situations and we should not be afraid to discuss about them. All of the faculty members and students make sure that you are cared for. Additionally, the academics are a top priority, and teachers are always willing to assist any student no matter how busy their day may be. Extracurriculars such as sports, volunteer clubs, and social awareness clubs are all showcased at our school and is a factor to be deemed proud of. Furthermore, all faculty members prepare you for college, always allowing students to be comfortable with whatever question or help they may need assistance with. There are a countless amount of facilities that are all provided for students that benefit them in every way.
