Glenwood Springs High School is a very diverse school. It's student population is about half Hispanic/Latino and half white, despite this the faculty is all pretty much white. This building is very beautiful, although because of recent news my own personal fear of school shootings make me feel slightly unsafe as all of the hallways and some classrooms are built almost entirely of glass. Something I would change about this school is the amount of extracurricular activities available. I feel that a school like this should have a wide variety of clubs providing for every student.

Glenwood Springs High school is a school to build relationships. The school is very secure as well as hoping to grow relationships with each individual. The school provides many programs that are involved in the community as well as shows the involvement within the district. I would advise moving to Glenwood Springs High school other than the any-other school in the district. There are strong bonds and many caring people that will help you get where you want to be. This small school provides many sports as well as many clubs including, Diversity Club, Key Club, Impact club, and Ect. This small town school will bring you stronger a person as well as bring you to an operating adult by the time your 18. So I say Glenwood springs high school is an excellent school
My first three years were very good, however, my final year has not as perfect. Seniors are required to complete a Capstone project for graduation. This is a pass/fail project that takes up a lot of time. I would rather spend my senior year reviewing colleges, studying for SAT or just doing homework. The high school pushes AP classes and so the science class I hoped to take was discontinued to allow for more AP classes which was disappointing.
