GBOC is a great school, with high quality education and teachers who genuinely care for their children. It's a great place for students who are in a cusp, they aren't quite belonging in the main stream regular classes, but don't belong in main stream special education either. The teachers/staff are wonderful, as a former student I still keep up with them every now and then. Also parents can relax and know that everything will be ok due to high quality of education and staff.

This school was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I was a former student and attended the off campus program throughout high school and I also attended Glenbrook South High School. It's a great school because you learn at your own pace and accommodates each child's needs. Also, the teachers there have so much compassion and knowledge for there students. Also, at this school is great for students whom are in a cusp meaning going mainstream to GBS or GBN would not be good for a student but neither would be going into special education in the mainstream schools. Also, GBOC offers students to take classes at there main campus and some even transfer to there home school. I also loved GBOC because the teachers made learning fun, we took really awesome field trips. I've been out of GBOC for 5 years and I still keep in contact with my teachers every now and then. GBOC changed my life and made high school a lot smoother for me!

I went to GBOC a few years ago, and now attend a four-year instituion and feel like I wasn't prepared for some aspects of the school, the classes don't serve as prerequisites for college courses although they are easier to understand. However, the staff and teachers there are second to none and have a true understanding for the students well-being.

GBOC is amazing. It's has a population of students who are thriving in the mainstream. The staff truly cares about the kids...that's the only way they could work there. Some students get back to the mainstream and others stay put.


Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
