This school is currently rated 7 out of 10. Don't we all want the very best for our kiddo's??? FYI 7 out of 10 is NOT the best!!! We moved to a district with a 10 out of 10 rating. Im amazed at the difference!!! My children are thriving now in every way. Not to mention they were beginning to feel like the minoriety in Glen Rose.

Like most small towns, this school centers heavily on the athletic department. VERY heavily. As in, if the athletic program does exceptionally well in the fall, don't be surprised that suddenly the UIL program has no funding in the spring. On the other hand, most of the staff and faculty were amazing; people who cared about what they were doing and were there to teach you what you needed for college...not what the state thought you needed to know for their silly standardized tests. Unfortunately, many of these outstanding teachers were limited to the "gifted" classes once you hit the teenage years. The disparity between the educations received by siblings can be both remarkable and sad. Furthermore, some teachers have been known to behave fairly unprofessionally. One berated a schizophrenic employee at the nearby grocery store (whose condition is well known in the community). Additionally, more than one teacher would play favorites or hold grudges against a student for affronts or slights committed by relatives. Though I suppose antics like these are your typical small town nonsense. Oh, and forget learning Spanish. Spanish IV was a repeat of II. Uni professors were shocked.

Ahh Glen Rose High School... Much better than any school in Cleburne or Granbury for sure. Personally from my experiences as a student, there are a couple of gripes I can give, but the two worst I can give are the lack of teachers for some particular classes, and the notoriously bad math department. But anyways, with all the clubs in the school and the mostly to die for learning program, and the complete richness of the district (Anybody go out and see our huge new athletic center? :D) this school system is tough to beat. Not only do the teachers and faculty want us to succeed, but the entire administration and community as well. I don't think a single Glen Rose Student could imagine going anywhere else.

I've gone to Glen Rose ISD since Kindergarden, and I really like it. We have some hardworking teachers and staff who care, and some not so caring staff. we are a small 3AAA school, but we do really well in competition for band, athletics, and Acedemic UIL. There is definitly room for improvement, but we are above average compared to other schools from what I can see, we just need more teachers who are really passsionate about there jobs.

Great school to live, learn and grow. Great art programs, and music programs. Athletics are very competitive and well known, however we dont have a soccer team.. yet! Also very well known for the test scores and acedemics.

Glen Rose is an all around great school! Most of the teachers and school leaders are wonderful and seem to really care about the students. The music program is awesome. There is a 4 year art program which is also exceptional. The Athletic program is also very good. All of the programs are reknown for their competitiveness and sportsmanship.

I spent 12 years in this school system, 1974 grad. and both of my children are students here. Yes, it's much better than we had but my daughter and other High School band students are expected to put in double the time that they put into other classes in their band class. During the summer, on holidays that they're out of school, etc...They're all treated as if they're going to be band majors in college. If they're sick or hurt...it doesn't matter, no sympathy! Their band director is never happy about their performance no matter how well they did, it wasn't good enough. If all the other teachers got as much extra time as he does, these kids would never have to worry about SAT's, ACT's or any test! Good teachers like Mr. Phillips, 5th grade science class, who care about their students must be hard to come by.

I just graduated from Glen Rose High School 5/28/04 and my 4 years there were among the best in my life. The quality of the facilities and the quality of Teachers is second to none. The only real problem I had was the lack of the more abstract extracurricular activities. Such as a chess club, math club, swim team, wrestling team, or powerlifting team. I realize they are now getting some of those started (Powerlifting), but I believe more involvment by students makes for better rounded people that are able to succeed in life.

I had 2 children graduate from Glen Rose High School. I feel like they both recieved a better than normal education. I was not pleased with the counseling staff and how they handled one situation, but the education was above average.
