Students that attend GHS face rigorous expectations that helps them grow quickly into young, responsible adults ready to impact our future and our society. Not only do we push students for success, but many time students that attend GHS are coming from failing elementary and middle schools which means they enter GHS behind the curve. Teachers and staff work hard and help students power through the curve so they leave well beyond the expectations of most high schools.

Glendale is one of the most amazing schools in the area because of what it does for its students with the resources it has. Also how much the teachers, staff and administration care.

I love Glendale High School. The students are some of the most caring kids I know. A lot of them don't have much, but when we have a canned food drive, or clothing drive, our kids are right there, donating and helping out. The staff is just as caring. I can't imagine working anywhere else.

I have been working at Glendale High School for 21 years. I must love it. I have to love it. The students are the best. We get them to exceed beyond infinity. These are the type of kids that believe in family, community and friends. Their hearts are big and they care about each other. When a school, family or communnity cares for each other, they don't settle for less than the best for each other and that includes an education. Glendale High School is the best!

Where else would a faculty not only cause the highest jump in student academic scores, but participate in a drama & 'improv' night, a marching band & a 'faculty march-a-long', various faculty/student teamed sports events and even a couple of nights of "Faculty Follies" on stage - along with rehearsals to raise money for students in need? Are you kidding me? oh yeah, and then there are papers to grade, lessons to prepare, tests to write, etc. They love what they do at that school..........and they produce!!!! Need a fair shake and a head-start in life...this is your school! God bless!!!

There is nothing like working with the most committed staff members and the most inspiring youth in Arizona. Every day, teachers and staff members help students fight against overwhelming odds; those students rise above their circumstances to be first-time graduates, to win state and national awards, and to win millions of dollars in scholarship money each year.

My son attended 2 years at a previous Glendale High School and has now been at Glendale High for 2 years. I see more enthusiasm in him and seems to care more about his choices and school than in previous years. He actually even credits the teachers and principal which is not common in school students. Thanks Glendale for helping him get to his graduation day. I now know that he will do it.
