    Extracurriculars: There are numerous extracurricular activities available for every interest in this school. Students, however, do not always utilize them. Student Government is a great club to be a part of, filled with great students and teachers who do a lot for this school. Administrative support for these clubs is not very high, but the dedicated ones fight to gain their support.

    Overall Experience: Glasgow High School tends to carry a rough reputation due to the amount of fights and altercations between students and teachers, equally. However, I did enjoy attending this school. Here, I found some of my best friends. I went to my first pep rallies, my first dances, and many athletic events. While are athletics aren't the best in the state, the crowd never seems to give up on them, constantly cheering on and supporting every sport, which helps maintain their confidence when things are down. Being Guard Captain in the Glasgow High School Red Dragon Marching Band was also a fun experience, teachning me different levels of responsibility. I would attend this school again, given the option.

    Teachers: I enjoy many of my teachers and have close relationships with them. However, they do tend to choose favorites and discriminate strongly against students who are not their favorites. When brought to the attention of administrators, the administrators ignore the problems until brought to the superintendent. From there, it is handled effectively.
