This school is one of the best school. The teachers are very helpful, nice, hard workers, and full of attention towards your future. The clubs in this school are one of the best because you are actually using your hands.

I am a member of the Glencliff community and I can tell you that this school is unbelievalbe. They won the National Community School of Excellence Award, have the Freshman Academy of the Year, and won the Signature School Grammy Award. While their scores are not as high as some other schools, the kids learned and graduation rates continue to rise. Great administrators, teachers and students.

Located just south of downtown Nashville, Glencliff high school draws its student body from the largest and most diverse immigrant and refugee populations in Nasvhille. Glencliff is currently home to Nashville's largest school vegetable garden, an effort geared toward ensuring student access to fresh fruits and vegetables while also educating them about nutrition and health.

Hi. I am currently a Junior at Glencliff High School, and I've been attending Glencliff since my Freshman year. I truly do love this school and proud to be attending it. I love how diverts it is, and how its a school that really welcomes everybody regardless of their race, religion, believes. Thats why it makes me very upset when people ask me what school i go to and I reply Glencliff and they just make this face and say 'oh Glencliff'. Thats when I get very defensive and I start telling them how much of a great school Glencliff really is. It seems like we get on the news for so many great things but as soon as one little bad thing happens, it over shines everything we've been working hard for. If it was up to me to rate Glencliff I would give it 10 stars!

First of all, I would like to begin by pointing out how things do change, and Glencliff is one fo them. People are you usually bias to their individual opinion,so that might have an effect on the outcome of their review. If the worst reviews given are true, then the whole Glencliff body lives in a completely different world now. This school is indeed a wonderful school, especially if you decide to make and get out everything of it. I am currently a Junior at this school and have gained so much that it would take a whole term paper to describe it. Soccer,Advanced Placement classes, after school tutoring and more are things that you can experience at this school. The current rating,in my opinion, needs to be at least put up one more star. At this school, you get out of it what you put in to it. : )

Glencliff High School to me, is the best school in our district. I've learned so much here that i couldn't have learned at another school. We are trying so hard to become a better school more and more everyday. I am a senior and since my sophomore year, there has been a great deal of change. There are leadership opportunities, clubs, and other orginizations here that you could be involved in to better yourself, the school, and the community. Glencliff is a great place to get your education and to learn about a diverse groups of people.

Ok I do attend Glencliff class of 2011 and honestly this school is excenlt. I went on mnps.org and looked up the test scores and behavior for the school and the funny thing is that someone of the so called great schools aren't as great as they seem to be. And our princpal Mr. Majors is an amazing princpal and his leadership is a 5 star rating. So all these dumb reviews are just people who couldn't make it in the real world Glencliff is a slice of the real world and if you can not make it in high school then you can't make it in life. There are everyday people who cause problems it just takes a man or woman to endure such things.

I am a recent garduate of Glencliff, class of 2008, and I do not recommend sending your child to this school. It's really not a very safe school. While I do feel somewhat prepared for this year being my first year of college that's only thanks to about 3 of my senior class teachers, before then I wasnt learning very much. If you absolutly have to go there and plan to go to college you better study hard on your own because you will need. The violence is ridiculous at Glencliff, sometimes the fight would be almost over by the time someone got there to break it up. None of the students have respect for any others students or teachers. Thats really the reason why the school isn't the best. The school would be better academically if the students actually paid attention or respected the teachers.

I am currently a sophomore at Glencliff High. The reviews for this school make it seem awful, but it is in fact a very good school. The teachers are a little odd, I must admit, but they seem okay. A few of my favorite teachers I ever had are in this school (Ms. Bell, Coach Staggs, and Mr. Paddock, to name a few). It's not perfect. No one ever said it was. But it's got heart. The teachers, while a few are a tad boring, all do their best with all the afterschool programs and such they have. Many are willing to stay after hours and tutor their students, and that's something you won't find in many magnet schools. I know, I've been in them for a long time.... In closing, many other people claim they don't feel safe in GHS. I feel safer there then I ever have in any other school.

Glencliff High School was the best school,when I went there in 1998-2000. I enjoyed the music deparment, the marching band was top notch, and the sports were at it's best when I attended. Now it been a few years since I've been there, but I'm sure that the academic programs are just as good if not better then before. I feel that Glencliff is the best, and that's how I feel...
