    "Teachers lack of leadership and motivation. (just doing my job thing) According to some students, they spend too much time talking about their personal life during class and then storm them with tons of homework. Does not motivate students to get along as a whole team."

    "In our current test-obsessed, highly standardized educational culture, it amazes me that a school like Glenbard West H.S. exists. The teachers genuinely care for and respect their students and their excitement for learning and passion for their subject areas is contagious! The teachers here challenge, encourage, and support students academically but, more importantly, holistically. They encourage students to explore their interests, to work hard, to be part of the Hilltopper community, and to be their best selves. I appreciate GBW's broader, healthier definition of "success." At GBW, my child is not a number or her best test score. This school is doing a great job of preparing my student for college and for life. Thank you, GBW!"

    "Glenbard West is a great school for outgoing, brilliant or athletic high school students. If you are a born leader you will do great. Glenbard West does nothing to help their students become leaders and they trample on quiet, kind students. Glenbard West is about making their numbers look good so they encourage most of the students to take AP classes that are completely developmentally inappropriate for 80% that are recommended to take them. The teachers are overloaded because they are to differentiate to a huge span of learners in both the regular classes and the honors and AP classes. If you are considering the Western Suburbs to live I would look at York in Elmhurst, OPRF in Oak Park or Hinsdale Central in Hinsdale before considering Glenbard West in Glen Ellyn."

    "Glenbard West was off the chain. The teachers were very serious about preparing us for the real world and the faculty did an amazing job helping me prepare for college."

    "Glenbard West is truly impressive. I have two sons enrolled with a third to start soon. The faculty is serious about getting kids ready for college yet the teachers are full of energy and have a great sense of self-assurance. They are great role models for the kids. Kids who graduate from Glenbard West have been given the tools and education they need to accomplish anything in life."
