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. 97% of the class of 2018 graduated with a Regents diploma and 77% earned Advanced Designations, one of the highest percentages on Long Island. Ninety-two percent (92%) of the graduating class continued their education, attending colleges and universities throughout the country.

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. We also offer college level courses through a partnership with St. John’s University that allows students to gain college credits in Spanish and Italian. Students interested in art have participated in fine arts summer programs, and student musicians have performed in state and national groups.

A full array of extracurricular clubs, performance groups, and interscholastic sports are available. Through our Natural Helpers Program, Operation Respect, and our Community Service Club, students develop a sense of caring and compassion for peers, the young, seniors, and the needy.

Our goal is to assist all students to achieve success at the highest level possible and to develop a sense of community and pride that will guide each individual through his/her educational journey and throughout life.
