yo dis school got da swag upin dat beitch i meen come on who dont liek a schoo dat got da football upin dat sheit nidga.
My daughter didn't like it much there, staff wasn't friendly at all, had a horrible experience with this school
I have the distinct honor of being a Glenbard South alumni as well as a parent. As a product of this small but proud school, I was thrilled to be able to find a home in the area so my sons could have that same opportunity. Smaller class sizes offer more one on one teaching if necessary and tons of AP class options. Excellent teachers, a caring and involved principal, along with a challenging academic program is what makes Glenbard South such a fantastic school! I honestly don't believe my son would've been able to get an academic scholarship to the University of Illinois without having the benefits of academic rigor this school instilled in him.
I teach there, and I think the students, staff and community are fantastic!
Pros: Stellar academics (particularly for honors/AP track), active extracurriculars, flexible course choice, personal attention due to small size Cons: Athletics are lackluster, somewhat cliquish, honors and regular kids divided socially, administration considers students' views little when making decisions. Overall, it's a good school. I'm glad I went here.
The honors program is so diluted, my daughter is getting bad grades from pure boredom. Not a good idea for anyone who's kids are involved in the honors program.
This school is amazing!!!! the teachers are very nice, they help out, and you can talk to them about any problems that you are having.
As far as schools go, i think gshs is a good one, although it may be lacking in a few areas, it's a small school which is nice, it's in a safe location and it's well rounded in many aspects as far as having a variety of sports, clubs, and classes. As a student there i must say i rather enjoy it.
i love this school, i'm a freshmen and it's honestly is a great school with amazing teachers
horrible at sports< not even close to good edcation< very poor standards and doesnt have alot off money availible for broading studentences expectations.
Honestly, this school isn't exactly the best place on earth like these parents say. They don't attend the school. But I did. I hated it, personally. I mean, it was alright to some extend but I much rather attend a different highschool. The security is horrible. I know a little birdie who snuck her boyfriend in the school and he got by with 5 classes. What does that tell you about the security? And might I add...they police offers are mainly over 50. What coul they do when there is a crisis? Nothing.
Great high school. There is a lot of division between the honors and regular kids. If you are not honors don't plan on being challenged to much. The school caters to the honors kids. If you are in any honors classes or AP classes you can really go places. If are just a 'regular' student you still have many opportunities, but you're on your own.
Scholastically top notch. My children diid well as a result of the programs directives.
This is a fantastic school. It offers a variety of classes, including a wider-than-usual selection of AP classes. The music program is exceptional, and academic excellence is stressed. Glenbard South is a very competative school for a public high school, and dozens of academically-based clubs and after-school activities are great suppliments to the already fantastic leaning environment.
This is a wonderful school with amazing teachers and students. My daughter was a new student last year and she made friends amazingly fast being that she is so shy. The teachers were wonderful at helping her catch up seeing as we moved with only seven weeks of school left. She felt very welcome and had wonderful grades thanks to the fabulous staff at Glenbard South. I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone.
