I never got to attend John Glenn High school full term but my brief time i spent there i just knew it was a great school in a GREAT city and neighborhood at the time,between 1980-1993 which was the BEST years there. Westland was one great city to raise a family in at that time,it was a huge community effort among all the residents, that the majority was also born and raised in. Westland and its Public schools was very well kept,safe and crime free! Westland Mall and Skateland was the #1 place for families,especially the students to hang out. I have the BEST memories in my lifetime there. Wildwood Elementry and Stevenson Jr. High was a GREAT school along with John Marshal Jr. High that had great teachers & staff. I was born and raised there until I left in 1997,i miss it and still call it "HOME".
