The school's success rate has gone from 4th to 12th place in the last year. Coming from an all A student, the majority of our teachers are lazy. These incompetent teachers are only kept around because of tenure. Its ridiculous how little these teachers know about their subjects. My spanish teacher was ...  Read more

It's true! This school has no real labs! Shocking! My child does paper labs for biology and chemistry. They had one fetal pig lab at the end of the year, that's it. How can they call this an education!

Personally, I think the school is very overrated. Teachers make such a fuss about bullying and fighting that in retrospect, there is very little bullying, especially for a small school with less than 800 kids in all 6 grades that are in GRHS.

I like the glen ridge high school. It's the school where everyone knows each other and the teachers have high expectations, unless they know you are not smart or try, and then they don't bother about you, even though they should. I have always been a good student, but never exceptional and I was very ...  Read more

Small School with Big standards. Glen Ridge has consistently done a fine job with my 3 kids and this School is year-in year-out rated in the top ten schools in New Jersey.

The district is over burdened with administrative staff, in fact when looking at state averages, for a small district we are well over average. The teachers although this is a general statement, and there are of course exceptions, seem to cater to the students who are either at the top of the class ...  Read more
