It was great in the 1980s. In the 21st Century it is a disaster. Again, if you have very bright honors students, you can get a lot of AP credit and honors classes at GBN. All other students would do better at GBS or a private school.

Attending this school was the worst experience of my life. If I could go back in time, I would have done anything to go elsewhere. The students treat each other poorly and the staff does nothing about it. They do not support their students' individual needs and interests unless they will aid the school in some way. Some of the guidance counselors only support the students that are athletes at the school. In the end, this school did nothing to help me towards success in what I wanted to do with my life. Some staff members even tried to stand in the way of my goals and opportunities. Stay far away from Glenbrook North.

I am a GBN graduate and I find that I am much more prepared and capable of my college classes than my peers. I hated GBN with a passion when I was there but going away to school has truly shown me what GBN gave me. That being said, there is an incredible need for A's. I was a B student but I always felt terrible around my A earning friends. I didn't take AP classes therefore I was a sub-par student. It was terribly stressful. I felt alone at GBN; though they say there's a club for everyone I never quite fit. But that is just me. I did have great teachers for the most part. They will go above and beyond if you ask them for assistance. But you have to advocate for yourself or you'll fall behind. All in all, it is a good school.

I attended this school years ago, and not a day goes by that I don't use some bit of knowledge culled from my exceptional high school education. Fabulous district with unbelievable resources. A top-notch education and facility. Northbrook remains a wonderful place to live because the schools continue their tradition of excellence. Bravo.

Glenbrook North was an ok school. It wasn't what I thought it would be, it's not the grates school at least the way I was treated there. I was discriminated against by some of the staff I had to go through a lot. they diden't even give me my sat score after I graduated
