I attend ghs they have great courses but they make it difficult for students who know that they aren't going to a 4 year right out of college by not helping them set up a schedule that will fit their academic ability. And I have had a lot of teachers who are lazy and don't teach. They just hand us packets and expect to learn. I would say 4 out of 5 teachers that I've had have treated other students better than they treated me. You have to be someone big in order to be treated normal. And one of the worst things about GUSD is star testing. They stress student out and cause them to cram just so they try to do well on a test that only benefits the school. This cause teachers to rush through important lessons. Sorry for ranting but I just wish the school had a better system to benefit kids with different learning abilities

My son is able to attend this school because Glendora is a district of choice. We drive 20 min one way just so he can attend GHS. I thoroughly researched this school before making this commitment. He is in his 2nd year now and I can tell you it has been great. They give you all the tools to succeed with block scheduling and a tutorial period. His teachers have been great and the honors and AP programs are good. They provide an atmosphere where college is encouraged and plenty of help and information is available. You can monitor your students grades with Aeries. Although I preferred Edline. My son participates in sports and it is extremely competitive and a sacrifice. They make a 0 period and 7 period available. He takes a 0 period so he doesn't have to have a 5th period and therefore never misses a class for games. The tools are available at this school for success and so far his teachers have been great. There is absolutely no reason any child couldn't be successful at this school.

Great school. GHS offers very tough courses and great opportunity for achievement with great teachers. Great Associated Student Body and activities. High API and most of the graduates get into great colleges. Uses block schedule which works great, and allows students with extra-heavy loads (0 and 7 periods) to not have too long of days.

All 4 of my children have attended GHS and the education is rigorous and prepares students well for college. I, myself, am an educator and I recognize the quality of the programs at GHS. Kudos to GUSD for realizing that every child counts!

With the new addition of the Event center, theater, updating the pool and fresh coat of paint GHS has improved on its physical appearence. Lacking is still a cafeteria and necessary track/field/football /baseball upgrades! Finally having a steady principal has been a plus. Great councelors, sports programs, music and pretty good staff.Special needs/Disable kids treated very well.

The music program is one of the best in the area. Caring and excellent staff.

My son also was one who was promoted up grades with F's. Despite my attempts at discussing his needs with the counselors and teachers, it became apparent that there was no 'team' learning environment anymore at GHS. While there are always exceptions (and GHS does have a few good teachers and administrators), my child was definitely one of those left behind. What a decline in education excellence from my day!

This School Is a great school, the staff are very nice, and some say all student are spoiled rich kid, it is not true, because i'm a student and i'm not rich or spoiled

Declining enrollment is a major issue impacting funding. New teachers are hired as temporary to the detriment of the students and teacher morale. This school's strength is its band and art programs. Sports are abundant. The campus is open and beautifully landscaped. The majority of the students are wonderful as well as most of the teachers. Special needs students are well served by Mrs. Valentine and Mrs. Pollard. All students are encouraged to enroll in college and to do their best. Glendora High School has some excellent opportunities for all students who choose to follow the rules and apply themselves. Robin Huntington

My children had been at a private school through 8th grade and then came to GHS as Freshman. We have absolutely loved every thing about GHS. They offer AP classes that have continued to challenge my children as well as sports, choir and band. The Administration, teachers, parents and other students have been friendly and helpful. My youngest will start GHS in September and we couldn't be happier.

The school is excellent, the senior class is academically the smartest class to graduate in Glendora's history. I have not yet met one teacher who did not want their students to succeed, and as far as I am concerned every teacher encourages academic excellence and they are always willing to help. Glendora High is definitely not lacking parent and teacher involvement, for the most part. There are always the few parents who just don't care about their kids enough to make any effort and simply blame their problems on staff members and 'rich' students.

I am a 15-year-old girl who is going to GHS. All my life until this year I have been home-schooled. The school has a really clean and friendly environment. The amazing teachers are the best part of the school. Mrs. Fallon, Mr. Wingerd, and Mr. Mair, Ms. Bell, Dr. Trevor, and Mrs. Trimble are the teachers I have had this year, and they are all awesome! I commute all the way from Orange County, but it is worth it. I would definitely recommend this school.

I totally disagree about Glendora High School lacking support of students with special needs. Not only did GHS help my autistic son greatly, he was weaned of Adaptive P.E., found a love for physical education and graduated with a very decent GPA. He never needed RSP while at GHS because his teachers were dedicated and knew their stuff! I transferred my son from a neighboring district where I worked. This district had more RSP and Special Needs students than Glenora has, but my son was either ignored or persecuted. I love GHS and would recommend it to any and everyone who cares about their child's future. By the way, I am not at all rich, many children who attend GHS are not from rich families. It is sad that so many people think that is so.

Great academics. My daughter loves it and is doing very well there. Currently a Junior and is a Varsity Cheerleader.

By reading other people s comments, I now understand why my son was having problems and never learned what they were trying to teach him. The schools are understaffed and the teachers really don t care. This School passed my son through every grade, with straight F's. He is at Glendora High. (Failing every course) I can't help but think if there had been adequate staff there to help him out like I had asked, how he would be doing today.

Faculty and administration lack the authority and expertise to deal with the student population of spoiled rich kids. Family oriented bedroom community.

WONDERFUL school, as long as your child does not need services for Special Ed. If so ........ run fast to a district that can better meet your child's needs, one that services special ed students and can also 'network' better with services AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, such as State rehab or outreach programs. This is where Glendora High is lacking. But then if you have a 'GATE' student you can not go wrong with this school.

Glendora High School offers an amazing breadth of academic opportunities for students seeking to achieve admittance to high eduation. There are a number of Advanced Placement courses that provide a challenging and fun curriculum. The new events center promises to give the theater department a better space to work in. I was in drama for four years and we produced some of the best shows in our tiny little run down theater; however, a new space was desperetly needed. There are plenty of extracurricular activities and clubs to be a part of. The faculty is heavily involved in all areas of the education.

Posted June 29, 2005

Glendora High School has tremendous potential to be an outstanding school; however, a lack of leadership by administration (primarily the principal) has left the school languishing. The good news is a new principal has been hired to begin the 2005-06 school year. The school offers a variety of AP and honors courses, and the level of teaching in these classes is of a higher quality than in the regular college prep classes. The school has a very safe environment with above average parental involvement. It offers many extracurricular activities, but lacks imaginatiion in terms of course offerings.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
