The Glenholme School Reviews

3 reviews
My son attended the Glenholme School from 7th grade through high school graduation. He was previously diagnosed with Asperger's and Bipolar Disorder and had trouble adjusting to his special needs day schools. While we felt badly having him leave home, this was a great help for him. The school has a structured environment, leading some children to resent the program. Our son will be attending an engineering program at a Northeastern public university in the fall!

So. this school works for some people and really doesn't help or even hurts some people's progression in treatment. Some of the staff are so devoid of their purpose or their job, they seem to see their work more as a chore than something they chose to do. This school is what you call "bare minimum". The head of the school is really fake and doesn't really care about the students. This is also coming from the staff. Rules are inconsistent. Regulations are not up held and can magically appear as they popped out of nowhere. That being said, this program does work for some people and is much better than most places. I'd have to say my highlight of the school was the people. I met some of my best friends there. However, the entire campus unanimously agrees that there are major flaws to the program that can easily be fixed. The school also protects people too much. Multiple threats made and acts of violence have almost no real life consequence. In conclusion, "Bare minimum."
You felt as if you were in a prison. Harsh punishments for not participating in activities that made you uncomfortable. A huge lack of freedom and staff were told someone was being sexually abused they ignored it and blamed the victim. The student couldn't leave and they were dismissive of students feelings.
