Glendora High School is a very well rounded school between academics, clubs and sports. One thing that can be improved on campus is the addition to an overall student wellness program. During my time there I met and knew many students who did not feel their best, and knowing the circumstances can say no counselors or staff took the time to ask students about mental health. Forming this program can help the school overall, and would definitely turn my 4 star into a 5/5 stars!

I am a freshman going into Glendora Highschool taking its summer program. From what I have seen the teachers are humorous and friendly, the campus is not only easily navigatable but also quite clean, and every student coming here understands that it is their responsibility to create their own success! I feel truly blessed to be able to enter such a great campus this school year.
I loved the amount of extra-curricular clubs and activities, particularly the music clubs and the marching band! However I would like their AP Capstone program to change, because currently it has made promises such as graduating high school with an AA degree, which it failed to make good on.
