This is our 2nd year at Glen Ridge High School. I am blown away with how great it is. The teaching staff is exceptional: caring, professional and most importantly engaging with the students. Glen Ridge is an affluent, educated community with high standards. It is my opinion that GRHS meets these standards.
The administration puts on a show of being non tolerant of bullying and makes a show of it, but when your child is bullied, there is no support. They are trying to protect their reputation, but the at the cost of actually doing something to stop bullying. Many of the students get away with very disrespectful treatment of teachers and other students alike. Science labs are largely paper labs and students are not allowed outside at all on most days during school hours.
Glen Ridge High School fosters a supportive environment for learning both in the classroom and outside of the classroom, offering numerous extracurricular activities to students. After completing our first years in college, my brother and I were both in agreement that Glen Ridge High School prepared us very well for our collegiate careers.
I like the glen ridge high school. It's the school where everyone knows each other and the teachers have high expectations, unless they know you are not smart or try, and then they don't bother about you, even though they should. I have always been a good student, but never exceptional and I was very surprised when I got 2239 on my SATS and andgot into a very god college.
Small School with Big standards. Glen Ridge has consistently done a fine job with my 3 kids and this School is year-in year-out rated in the top ten schools in New Jersey.
The district is over burdened with administrative staff, in fact when looking at state averages, for a small district we are well over average. The teachers although this is a general statement, and there are of course exceptions, seem to cater to the students who are either at the top of the class or the bottom. And if at the bottom additonal attention is only provided after the student has been 'classified'. Meanwhile the 'average' student in the middle is given little or no attention when they may be having problems.
