R.B. Glenn High School Reviews

Glenn is, in my opinion, a pretty diverse school. I don’t think one race surpasses another and I feel comfortable around the people I share a classroom with. Glenn is a relatively safe school if you disregard the fights every week. I enjoy the few good teachers who teach at Glenn. Some teachers are loud and can seem mean while others are genuinely kind and care about our education. I have been involved in club activities and I believe them to be really cool and helpful at times. I was able to donate blood to the Red Cross through a club from my school which was an amazing opportunity I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. I have been in the arts (theatre department) and from participating, it’s obvious my school caters more to sports than the arts but it’s still an average program.

The teachers at RB Glenn are amazing. The faculty is always open and helpful and the classes are inspiring. The wide range of classes offered both at the home school and career center open up a world of opportunities for all the students. Even the extracurriculars are invigorating, and you can even easily create your own club, making it almost impossible to not have fun and get involved. However, with the last batch of freshman the amount of fights per week has gone through the roof. We now of two permanent resource officers! Additionally, the drug problems have been consistently present at the school. I only wish that the astounding quality of the teachers would rub off on the students a bit. Despite this, I will say that the students are quite nice to each other (when not throwing fists) we are tolerant, which comes in handy since we're one the most diverse schools in the county, and I have yet to see a case of serious bullying. Just stick to honors classes and you'll have a blast.
Being a homosexual male at Glenn High School definitely was a difficult challenge, students are very ignorant and rude. The student body is very diverse but not very aware of what is going on within the school, and college prep is rarely provided or mentioned. Few teachers seem to actually care about your education and the relationships you make with them. I liked Glenn because of its diversity and the teachers I did make connections with. I would like to see Glenn in future years have more of a community feel as well as having faculty be more involved and show a sense of passion for the students they teach.
