My experience at Glen Cove High School couldn't have been better. After graduating from GCHS I went on to Princeton University and felt more prepared for rigorous courses than many of my peers from private and boarding schools. Glen Cove benefits from a small student to teacher ratio (12 1) and a small school overall (995 students) so students whether they are at the top middle or bottom of the class will never get lost. The ability to get involved and take on leadership positions is incomparable as its extra-curricular list is extraordinary and teachers are really passionate about students excelling outside the classroom. I'm currently a private college admissions counselor and know exactly what colleges are looking for and Glen Cove is an ideal school for students looking to go on to top colleges because its small size gives multiple students the ability to shine and stand out in their own unique ways.

I have 2 children who graduated and have become very successful young adults. They took advantage of everything that was available law club DECA ski club jazz band chorus golf and soccer. They had everything they needed to compete on a national level and graduated Princeton and George Washington Univ. with honors. The opportunity to succeed is there for the taking it's a hidden secret. Colleges will only accept 1 tops 2 students from each district.
Absolutely Terrible. If you have the choice do not send your child here. He will become a failure in life.
I graduated from glen cove and when i got to college i understood how great going to glen cove was. for one it is very diverse and that is not something you get to experience many places. the education was great. i graduated with a 3.7 and know that i still need to go strong in college.
As a current sophmore at GCHS I think that it is a good school for extracurriculars but unless you get lucky you can miss out on alot. I have seen the principal twice in my entire time here. There are few good teachers but there are twice as many bad ones. The guidence are not really that helpful unless you have a question about the schedule. The food is atrocious and the facility is not nearly as clean as it should be. I must say parent involvement is generally non existant. I must say that I am happy to be leaving this school and starting my Junior and Senior years at another school.
I feel that this school cares mainly for the top ranked students. they have wonderful programs for you if you are in the top percent of you class. if you are in the middle somewhere you will get lost. plenty of extracurricular activities but the same group of kids are involved with everything. i would love to see this school get the esl population involved more. because there are plenty of them.
