Glenwood High School creates an average learning environment for students. Glenwood has great facilities and is constantly working to modernize and get the latest technology. In recent years, Glenwood High School has faced a few safety scares. Threats of violence were often written on walls, forcing Glenwood into evacuations and even a five-hour lockdown. Despite these times of confusion and chaos, Glenwood staff had the student body's safety as their first priority, checking every bag, locker, and body in the building thoroughly. Many of the teachers here genuinely care about the students and what they are teaching, although there is the occasional bad apple who is biased and clearly does not care for their job. Overall, Glenwood is a fairly nice school who does it's very best to not only keep their students safe, but well-rounded in education.
I have learned a great deal about academics, social skills and life in general at Glenwood! I have gotten a great education, I've learned how to deal with people in certain situations, and I have been touched by so many wonderful teachers. I really do support Glenwood as an institution, as I've had a great three years there and I can't wait for my senior year to be just as good.
