Read what parents are saying about Glynn Academy
Facilities are sub-par. Over-achieving students are bullied for wanting to learn. No one cares about actually gaining knowledge. Many students are unruly. It is a school in an area where no one cares about bettering themselves or the community. I graduated from GA with a 4.1 and a 30 ACT, and because it was such a bad school, it was still a struggle for me to get into my public state University. The only thing holding it up are the kids coming from the island.

I am currently a sophomore (class of 2018) at GA who has also been to BHS.As a freshman at the other school, I have had a middle school-like experience there (in other words, it was beyond anything I would have imagined and it hurt me severly). I will post a review for BHS as well.I have a few friends who I already know as well as NEW friends over there and I am having the best academic experience of my life right now! Because the campus is split up into different buildings, it creates a college-like atmosphere. You are allowed to eat lunch anywhere (except in the media center) and hats, bandanas, and the like are allowed (upon teacher discretion). This makes an average school day feel really laid back.The students there are nice, and I have not come even close to being disrespected. In fact, I am actually liked a lot at that school!If you don't like the teachers at BHS, they are exactly the same at GA. Don't expect there to be better teachers. They all follow the same (poorly written) education system.Overall, Glynn Academy is going really well for me. I have a lot of faith in this school (more than any school I've been to). If you are a parent, then you should consider enlisting your child in this school; the island kids are not snobby, as far as I'm concerned. You will be glad you went to this school! It has a great history and vibe. You will not be teased whatsoever for being "different" (I don't guarantee this, though--no school is perfect.)I hope I have helped anyone out with this review. This is just MY experience, so please don't expect your experience to be like mine (but I do wish you the best!)

I went to Glynn Academy for all four years of high school, and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The academics are above average, there are several after-school activities and clubs that students can join, and there is plenty of opportunity to explore other cultures and ideas. The only downside to the school, is the campus itself. While it has a beautiful, historic campus, it seems to be more geared toward a college campus with it's vast acreage. This coupled with random locker locations throughout, makes for a lot of walking to go get books/notebooks for each class, unless you are willing to carry 50-75 pounds on your back. Overall, I will be happy to send my two girls to GAHS in a few short years, and you should be too.

Glynn Academy is a joke. All we do in class is sit around listening to teachers repeat themselves because they assume we do not understand. There is no sense of family in the classrooms. I have seen students bully other students in front of teachers and nothing has been done to stop them. The student resource officers sexually harass my friends and by touching our shoulders without provocation and telling us that we would look prettier with a smile. All in all, this school is great if you are a conservative confederate republican. Otherwise, good luck.
