There is alot of drugs and violence going on in glenview, even though it is a smaller town. I went to glenbrook south and graduated in 2011, i was oblivious and thought Glenview was a "goody to shoes" and didnt have drugs like coke and weed. I was a senior when I found out and now 8 years later, i think it has just gotten worse. I would like to see more special ed facilities. I am a behavioral therapist who works with the disabled and autistic and I feel there needs to be more resources for them. I love the schools i went to growing up, i think the schools and their teaching is very good. The housing is rather expensive though, i have lived at the same adress for almost 25 yrs with the exception of a 3 month break. Other than that, i love glenview. Thats my home!

Glenview has been my home since I was born, and I am so thankful to be raised in this village that has given me so many resources to achieve happiness and success in life. The schools are extraordinary, really preparing students for their next level of education. I can attest to this for both private and public schools, having attended St. Catherine Labouré for grade school and Glenbrook South High School (GBS). GBS provides a plethora of intriguing classes from all fields, as well as countless clubs and sports. For most of its years, Glenview had been an agricultural center, but now it is a mainly residential area full of an impressive variety of quality restaurants, stores, entertainment, and beautiful nature and wildlife areas. I am so fortunate to live in Glenview, and I appreciate the memories of times of self-fulfillment in school and extracurriculars, with my family, and with friends I have made to keep for the rest of my life. Free public transportation would be beneficial.
Great area for families with excellent public and private schools. Decent nightlife at the centrally located Glen Town Center- Glenview's hub. A quaint downtown scene that is always busy. An expensive area with little diversity, with the majority of the population being white. Centrally located just outside Chicago. The two metra train stops in Glenview offer easy transportation to and from Chicago.
