Glassboro High School Glassboro High School is a small school in Gloucester County serving 700 students. Teachers at the school provide each student with individual attention during the school day, which is comprised of a 4 x 4 block schedule of extended learning periods. Students have the opportunity to participate in the Fine and Performing Arts Academy or the Science Technology Engineering and Math Academy.

Glassboro High School’s mission is as follows: “All Students will be prepared with the skills and attitudes necessary to succeed as life-long learners, and will be competent, well rounded individuals, ready to attain productive and self-fulfilling roles in a Global Society. A partnership of Board of Education, staff, students, parents and community will ensure a commitment to the shared obligation to provide optimum opportunities for learning. Educational community members will dedicate themselves to the responsible execution of their obligations to the children, parents and citizenry of Glassboro.”

By providing students with high academic standards, specialized programs, clubs, activities and technology necessary to reach achievement, Glassboro High School graduates are well-prepared for life after high school. According to the school’s website, recognizing the importance of all students, they provide programs for dual college credit, inclusive education, and collaborative instruction with special and regular education teachers. Advanced placement classes and dual enrollment courses are also offered.

Glassboro High will be sending five students to the American Legion NJ Boys State Program at Rider University from June 21-26.
