Glenwood Senior High School is a nice high school to attend. Everyone is nice and knows each other since there are only around 500 kids. The school sports are extremely competitive, but the school is mostly known for basketball. My freshman, sophomore, and junior year were the best years, although considering this is my senior year, they changed the grading scale to a more difficult scale, of which most aren't happy about. Overall, this school is great and would definetly reccomend it to those considering.

I had so much fun as a student at Greenwood High School! What really helped me was to stay involved and active. I was a cheerleader my first year and going to the games and being part of that culture helped motivate me to have good attendance and to stay involved. My counselor was always available to speak with me and help keep me on my path to attend college and with the motivation to continue school after graduation.
The high school was built only a few years ago (maybe 6). I love the activities at Glenwood High School; there are so many ways to get involved. Homecoming is huge here, and it is always a huge celebration. Our basketball was the state champion this year. I believe more money should be invested in the arts. Our band has had to separate into two because our band room is not large enough (it is a fire hazard). I also think the academics could step up. I have seen a few instances of bullying in my three years here, but nothing extreme. I believe it happens more often at other schools.
