I do not recomend this school, if you can avoid going there, please do so. The teachers/principals don't do their job. I graduated in 2001 and I feel like I didn't get prepare enough. Natalhie Aguilar

This school is one of the worst schools in the district, I graduated recently and went to college, like many of my fellow classmates, however, I do not feel like I was trained well enough for the path that was layed out in front of me. The teachers were not occuppied with teaching us the essentials, but instead they were worried about what they were going to eat for lunch, and who they were going to send for the lunch. There are many gangs in the school, and there are at least 3 fights per day. I think that the school board should look at this school and do EVERYTHING they can to fix the problems.

I am an alumni of the school.(1998) I think this is one of the best schools to go to in order to get a good education. Half of my graduating class went on to college after graduation.

Students do not feel safe going to school here because it seems that teachers nor the school itself can control the students when necessary. I do not recommend this school if your child is an honor student because that will change once they get here and there are several children who fear even going to school at Glencliff for the above reasons.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
