A lot of people discredit John Glenn thanks to infamous rumors and bad reputation Glenn has. In actuality, Glenn is one of THE best schools to go to. The teachers there are very supportive of what the students do/want to do, they offer plenty of challenging AP classes to give college credit, and the best part is, we have a college and career counselor! She is very helpful, and answers any questions one may have, regarding scholarships and majors. Without her help, I would have never gotten into UCLA or UCI!

I had an amazing experience at John H. Glenn High School. The students that I went to school were a lot like me, which are people that I can relate to. This school in almost any sport or activities was looked at as the underdog, which I liked because it meant we just have that much more to prove. Although I liked that, it pains me to say that this school, for the years I attended, was not really good at sports, which I believe they should focus on making their sports better to improve student accountability and moral. The teachers there were amazing, never had a complaint for anyone there. They showed a lot of attention to the students success and always cared about the kids at that school.
I am so thankful that I ended up going to John Glenn High School. I made many great memories there, especially while I was in the drama club and the marching band. I was able to take challenging Advanced Placement classes that make me feel more prepared for college. I have met so many unique students that I am glad to call my friends. At Glenn, I am not afraid to be myself and I feel comfortable communicating with my teachers.
