I'm currently a senior and I've truely enjoyed my experience here at John Glenn. They have really great teachers, coaches, and faculty. Although budget cuts have made a huge impact on lack of activities, it's still filled with alot of school spirit.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
