    Overall Experience: Glenn Hills High School is disappointing. Most may say its the students fault, but I believe its a combination of both students and administration. The administration is not very organized. They are not prepared either. However, the students are disrespectful and don't focus on there work.My favorite experience would probably be this past year when seniors had their senior week. I felt the administration loosed up to us and wasn't so controlling. The tardy rule is scary. If you get 11 tardies in a semester you're suspended for 3 days, 15 tardies=5 days, 21 tardies=10 days suspension. You have to be very careful. Five minutes would be plenty of time to get to class if students werent standing around.

    Administration & Policies: Discipline at this school is very existent. Halls are constantly being monitored. If you get caught, you will most of the time receive in school suspension. If it continues you will be suspended out of school. If you reach 11 tardies in 1 nine weeks you get 3 days of out of school suspension, 5 days for 15, 10 days for 21, and if you reach 25 you will be taken to tribunera. sometimes you can reach an understanding or be given a second chance if he feels you are not a trouble student. Guidance counselors are always there for you. Staff can be very busy however, which is understandable. Bullying is not acceptabl, but not that big of a problem. We do have a dress code, but not everybody follows it.

    Sports & Fitness: Sports at Glenn Hills High is what most students participate in. There is a variety of sports. Student involvement is great. Fan support is average. Basketball and football would be most popular, but other sports only parents show up most of the time. School spirit is pretty bad. The most you will hear is a few announcements. There is almost no funding for some sports, because sports like football, basketball and track get most of the funding.

    Teachers: The teachers teach something new almost everyday, however we don't get all of the standards we are supposed to get by testing time. Teachers make sure the majority of the students understand what is being taught. They don't have a lot of teaching method, but with some practice one on one you get the concept. their knowledge on what they're teaching isn't the best, but I think it's pretty good. Grading mostly includes participation/class work, quizzes and test. Sometimes there may be a project. You know what the teacher is grading most of the tim.

    Extracurriculars: There are not many clubs and/or organizations at Glenn Hills High. Some could include National Honor Society & Anime Club. Those are actually the only ones I can think of. There was a Chess Clu, but I think that stopped.
