Glenwood Springs High School Reviews
Glenwood is an incredible school because they provide countless opportunities to all of their students in regards to education, sports, clubs, music, art, etc. The teachers are constantly on the look out for students that may be struggling in terms of their classes, social life and home life. The school offers a wide selection of classes and has an outstanding AP program. I had an amazing experience during my time at GSHS and I would recommend their educational system to anyone, because that school welcomed me and became my family from the moment I walked in as a freshman and to the moment I walked across the stage at graduation.
I instantly felt like I belonged in the school when I came in my freshman year. The freshman orientation is very helpful, and the school is organized in a way that makes classes very easy to find. People are very welcoming in general. We used to have great school lunches, but they were expensive as they were made by professional cooks. Now we have a federal lunch program that is very affordable, but just as gross as most school lunches are. Like many schools, we do not recieve enough funding, but the community is often willing to donate to make up for any shortcomings in the financial department.
My experience at GSHS was fairly positive. I liked how the teachers were always ready and available to help the students. The culture and climate of the school was very good. All races got along fine, which made it for a safe school. Our SRO was on campus a lot and hung out with students in order to get to know each and every one of them. He was also very diligent with the complaints that came his way. Our counseling office was very helpful whenever we needed them. Our class sizes are pretty big, so lowering the class sizes would be pretty helpful.
