Glades Central is one of the greatest schools in Palm Beach County, although we are not recognized for the positive things that happen as those on the Coast. Glades Central is also not equipped with the latest technology. They get a lot of old equipment handed down from the schools on the coast that old and outdated. GC works hard with the lowest 25% and always show great amounts of gains as compared to the coastal schools.
I just graduated from Glades central and it is a good school. Most of the teachers relly care about the students. Its the students that need to care more about themselves. Thier are lots of extra activities for the students thier its just a matter of the students inrolling themselves into them.
I think that glades central is a good school only if the kids could work more with the teachers and parents.They need to focus on academics more all tear long instant of waiting to the end of the year to want to have an parent conference with the teachers when the damage is already done.Parents need to be more involve when it comes to the fcat and focus on graduation and prepare for our kids future!
Glades Central High school is an awesome school although I believe that the academic programs are somewhat limited to the children then that of what other schools have; such as the IB program and very limited AP classes for my children who are very academically accelerated then most. I also believe that the sports is more highy praised then the academics.
