    "More often than not, teachers have a geniune desire to see their students learn and grow with the lessons that they teach. Most of the teachers I've had were very good mentors, and I've taken a lot of life lessons out of their classes. However, a few teachers that I've seen in my time at Glenbrook South do not share that desire, which is why I can't give it a five out of five in good conscience. I think that the teachers do the best that they can, but it's up to the teachers who aren't up to the same caliber to do what they can to better their teaching styles to the benefit of the students."

    "The teachers at Glenbrook South are often very high quality. Some are worse (or better) than others, but most are intelligent and hardworking. The teaching styles vary wildly from teacher to teacher. I had one teacher that would grade based on the quality of work I had done, and not on if I had an entire project done. Some teachers grade on completion alone. Some teachers combine the two by grading on quality of the completed work and taking points away as a type of late fee. Something that I can say about GBS is that I have never had a teacher that didn't care about the topic they were teaching, and that engages me."

    "I will start off saying that I would never want to go anywhere but Glenbrook South; however, probably not for the reasons that people think. GBS's academic classes made me hate school more than any other school I have been to. The classes are competitive and intense. The workload is high. Most kids can hardly keep up and keep themselves happy. I couldn't. I chose to let my grades to fall into C range and lower so that I could participate in things like Stage Crew and various clubs. Which brings me to what I love about GBS: extracurriculars. GBS has such a humongous variety of clubs and activities to participate in that I think it would actually be impossible to be without one unless you tried to stay away. I was co-president of a tea club: a club where we sit and drink tea for an hour and talk. For a while, there was cheese club. I taught at a rubik's cube club to teach beginners tricks and algorithms to solve cubes. There's a myriad of culture clubs and so much more. Aside from clubs, I joined stage crew (by the way, if you want to be visually amazed, look up Glenbrook South show sets from the past few years) which gave me a family and place where I felt like I belonged, where I could grow and become important. I feel so lucky to have gone to GBS, not because it makes colleges look twice at my application, and not because it challenged me, but because I had a place to be and people to care for me."

    "The student body is very diverse and everyone is fairly friendly with one another. Student involvement is very big here and students attend a variety of activities: sports, plays, musicals, etc."
