John Glenn High School Reviews

My experience at John Glenn has been amazing. I have had the opportunity to be involved in many arts programs and student groups. I have made great friends who have the same interests as I do. What I love is the smaller environment, and class size. It has been very easy to be successful and grow as not only a student, but an individual. The teachers and counselors are all invested in the success of the students. Everyone is there to support you when you need help, or just have questions. The only change I would recommend is the opportunity for more educators throughout the high school. At times, I felt as if the teachers were still fully invested in their students, however they were very overwhelmed with some of the amounts of students they would have in each class.

Overall, John Glenn High School in Bangor Township, Michigan was just like any other average high school. My experience was comfortable and the staff was rather considerate of my personal life and mental health. It was here I met some of the sweetest, most caring teachers. I will never forget the things those people have done for me; I miss all of them deeply. Though John Glenn lacked diversity due to its location, it was an accepting school for the most part. I would refer John Glenn to any parent who was unsure of which high school to send their child.
John Glenn is full of welcoming faculty and students. We have encouraging "Bobcat Boasts" each morning, and always start the day with smiles on our faces. The teachers truly care for their students and do their best to help us move towards success. It is a safe environment thanks to our personal deputy, who stays at the school throughout each school day. I have had a safe and well-educated three years here, and I am very excited to finish my high school years off at this school. Though I am a bit disappointed I will have to leave it all behind. Overall, John Glenn is a fantastic place to get an education, and the only improvement I can think of is more teachers, so our educators aren't so over-booked. We have quite a few teachers who teach about three different classes, and then also coach a few sports after school or even plan our school dances.
