    "Teachers try to cater to each students' learning needs, but some are unclear or their expectations and can be harsh graders without explaining anything. While some on the other hand offer a lot of extra credit to make up for some students who can't get passing grades. Overall, the teachers here challenge students and prepare them for colleges."

    "For the most part, every teacher is supportive and we'll rounded about the curriculum. They come in before school and stay after for anyone who needs help. They really care about the students that go here."

    "The school is a bit overrated but I think it's location is in a very tight-knit suburban community. Parents and teachers are very involved in athletic events. Sometimes it's a bit overrated but there are immense contributions to the school."

    "If I could go back to Glenbard West, I sure will because the knowledge that I gain has been such an empowerment to my confidence and I use it every single day. I was not only given knowledge I was also given friends that are just like me, people who I can relate to both cultural and educational. The most fun nights of my life were my senior year homecoming and prom dance, I had to spend the night dancing and having fun with my best friends, and till this day we still talk about our cool dance moves. I also very munched enjoyed the clubs I was in Spanish Honor Society and Glenbard Latino Organization, which allowed me to share my language, food, traditions, and dance moves. I feel that the unique thing about Glenbard West is the way every student gets along there really no clicks from which you can distinguish the popularity and the normals we all got along perfectly. This is why I would 100% go back to high school."

    "Glenbard West High School is a school where no student feels left out, every teacher full or part time has as much dedication and respect for what they teache and their students. In my personal experience all of my teachers were amazing. They each had their own way of teaching, while some where more authoritative and others were more permissive they all made sure we learned our lessons. For example my spanish teacher was more permissive in the way that she would go out of topic to explain subjects with real world problems with examples from Venezuela, Spain and Mexico. Mean while the more strict teachers like my US History teacher she would not go out of topic to give examples instead she would make us pretend to be important people like Alexander Hamilton and George Washington and believe or not I learned a lot more pretending to be them and asking my self questions that where self taught with there actions and responses. One of the things I loved about my teachers was that they would not discriminate anyone, and would be helpful to everyone no matter how much or how little help you needed. One thing I did love was that teachers would have one on one talks when they saw that you weren't giving it your 100% effort and they would get you back on track. Eventhough some teachers where harder graders then other they all were fear in the way they graded each individual for their own work."
