John Glenn High School Reviews

Studying at John Glenn has been an excellent experience for me. The school is not only small enough that you can know the name of everyone in your graduating class, but after about a month of being here you can navigate the school like the back of your hand! Most of the teachers are supportive, and care about thier classes learning experience; You'll most certainly get help or information on most things if you ask. You get a real sense of community from the people at Glenn, and that's an excellent thing to have.
The only real drawbacks are that rumor spreading can be done very quickly, due to the small size of the school and small number of students, and the amount of classes you can take is somewhat limited. Other than that, Glenn's a great school that I'd recommend to anyone!

John Glenn is an amazing high school. There are many opportunities available when attending John Glenn. Unlike other schools where you can only partake in one activity per semester, John Glenn allows you to be involved in multiple extracurricular activities at the same time. For example: you can play sports, sing in the choir, and even march in the marching band. This helps students get a feel for what they are truly passionate about.
Attending John Glenn High School has been an incredible experience! All the students and staff make you feel right at home. The classroom size is small which makes it a great learning environment and allows you to have a good personal discussions with the teachers!
