I am a junior and I go to Glassboro High School. I think that my school has so much to offer, and yet recieves not as much recognition as they deserve. My teachers and the other ones in the school are amazing and the classes that are available are very rare. I am glad that my parents chose to send me to Glassboro High School, were our population is less than 800 students, instead of a big private school. I hae established relationships with classmates and administrators that will last a life time.
