Elwood-John H. Glenn High School has a continuing tradition of excellence. Each year, members of the senior class achieve SAT scores that rank above the national and state averages. The number of seniors cited by the National Merit Scholarship Program exceeds the national average. Graduating classes have included a number of National Merit Scholarship semifinalists and commended scholars. In addition, 87% of the class of 2003 graduated with a New York State Regents Diploma, one of the highest percentages on Long Island. Ninety percent of the graduating class continued their education, attending colleges, universities, and technical schools.
To achieve these impressive results, we offer a comprehensive curriculum for grades nine through twelve. Courses are reviewed annually and new courses are added to meet changing needs. Included are Advanced Placement and college-level courses, Regents courses that meet and exceed all state requirements, and electives in both academic and technical areas. Students interested in art have participated in fine arts summer programs, and student musicians have performed in national groups.
A full array of extracurricular clubs, performance groups, and interscholastic sports are available. Through our Natural Helpers Program and our Community Service Club, students develop a sense of caring and compassion for peers, the young, the old, and the needy.
Our goal is to assist our students to achieve success according to their ability levels and to develop a sense of pride and accomplishment throughout their academic careers.
