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.

I went to Glenn High School all 4 years of my high school experience. Throughout the years, we have gained a ton of Black and Hispanic students. This is okay but these parents of the younger generations do not parent their children. I would like to see the administration do something more to control the mania throughout the school. I have be luck and received the few good teachers at this school. Unfortunately, most of the teachers do not seem to care about the students. A teacher should work hard to make sure their students understand the material, some of Glenn's teachers teach the material and then move on. They do not care if majority of the class does not understand the material. I also think Glenn high school could improve upon their organization. Events and people seem to be everywhere with no system. Other than these flaws, I am glad I went to Glenn high school and I know I will take several things from my experience here.
Good School overall for me! I was able to associate with others and learn from most. I was in several clubs, after a couple weeks they just stopped meeting. My 4 year experience has been good for me. I have a sister that is coming up through Glenn and she is adjusting just fine as well.
