New Glarus High School Reviews

New Glarus High School consists of a stereotypical small town atmosphere where the Principal is the Football Coach, last name "legacy"'s receive bloated attention, and practically the entire town shows up for a sports event. Actually scratch that, not any sports event, only the boys football or basketball games. Anything else that actually took time and effort to achieve high honors won't get mentioned. The education system, I admit, exceeds some other school districts, except for any of the arts departments.

Not much that I have liked recently. Sports are put above most, not a very diverse population, and if you are someone who is different then the average crowd, you sure feel like it. Students are welcoming. Had allowed political things (flags, shirts, etc.) to be worn, or brought to the school grounds, yet did not equally support all protests or political views. The principal does not understand students unless they play football. This last year there was a staff vs student situation that made it very uncomfortable to attend. Not diverse population, not very much diverse thinking.
I liked New Glarus, my class and teachers where definitely a good influence to me. I knew that I could always walk in and rarely ever feel not safe. There is barely any bulling and everyone is so close due to the school being very small. Unfortunately there are not a lot of class options due to the enrollment size being pretty small, but if you are interested in engineering or the medical field the classes for those are endless!
