I do see a lot of good change at Glen Burnie High School and I'm so proud to let you know that my daughter is one of the students and she loves every minute of the BioMedical and Allied Health Magnet. She was in sixth grade when she first joined the GBHS Color Guard and it was the best thing for her, we were very pleased with the after school program. Then, when she heard about BMAH, she was very excited, because she knew it would help her to get into the medical field! What I'm trying to say is that she made good friends and her teachers are willing to help her whenever she needs help. The parents, community and faculty all want to make this school a great learning environment for the students. I would do anything in my power to help this school as a parent. I am proud to say that my daughter is a Glen Burnie Gopher!

All schools have their issues. I would say from experience that students at gbhs think theu can do anything and get away with it. Not enough resources are given to help/reward the positively behaving students, you have to act out to get one on one attention. The special education department is devoted to helping students...this can not be said for all departments. Overall an okay school...improvements are needed and healthroom staff is NEVER willing or has a positive attitude towards doing their job

I'm about to be a senior, so I have plenty of experience with this school. I honestly think this school is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be, the things that go on in my school happen at every single other school. Just because you don't hear about it as frequently, doesn't mean it's not happening. Yes, the bathrooms do smell like cigarettes at time, but that's going to be at every high school. Fights happen from time to time, but that ALSO happens at every other high school. The teachers are very lenient, helpful, and kind. They will be flexible with whatever needs you may need. I like this school a lot, and I'm glad I've got to share four years of experience here.

I'm a first year student. A freshman. And I have to say that the school over all isn't the greatest. I love my teachers. They'er all great. But some of my teacher don't care AT ALL about what the students are doing. And many of those students acting up are sophmores and juniors. Acting like fools and constantly talking about drugs and sex DURING class. Right in front of the teacher. And they're LOUD. But don't think that all the students are like that. Every school has a few fools running around. i actually have a number of friends who are upper classmen who are very mature; nice to be around. They help me with school and they helped me during the first few days of school when I was lost. So the students at GBHS ok. You just need to find the right crowd. And the school is NOT as depressing as some of these reviews make it to be. It does need a serious make-over; but you have to remember that this school is HUGE. THere are like, six different buildings. There's a lot of things to fix in just too many places. But I do suggest using the bathroom at home. Unless you're fine with the smell of smoke... Just keep yourself in check and you should be just fine.

I have a first year student at GBH and she loves the school. She has done very well. Signed up for German and piano. She plays the piano and speak German. Go figure. The school said they teach these subjects/activities. The teacher did their job. My daughter did her job in paying attention. Me as a parent stay active in her daily studies. Granted GBH needs a serious facelift but what is inside managing and teaching the kids is what matter most.

there is no expectation of being anything more than a B student here. the kids are not rich and therefore dont invest in themselves academically. they just churn into the standard blue collar glen burnie experience. sad sad sad!!

I have 2 children at GBH. Both have wonderful teachers who want to teach and help my children succeed. It is not perfect but believe me it could be much worse - I've seen it at other schools!

I attended GBHS, and it is a great school. All of my teachers want out of their way to help me in any way possible. Yes the kids may rome around the school, but what do you expect to happen with an open campus. I can gurantee you, if you put the kids from Sevrna Park or Broadneck High Schools into GBHS they would rome around to. The job of GBHS's staff is to teach the kids, not be the parnets.
