Elwood-John H. Glenn High School

A Message From the Principal


At Elwood-John H. Glenn High School we pride ourselves in working diligently and collaboratively to help promote the success of all students. This not only includes setting high standards of expectation and rigor in our academic programing but, equally as important, this includes the mental/emotional health and social wellbeing of all who walk our halls. We continue to be committed to our collective journey towards success and excellence. In addition, our goal as educators has always been to create a warm, welcoming, and inclusive learning environment where all students can feel connected and comfortable while striving to reach their fullest potential. We promote student voice while encouraging self-advocacy and our administrative team practices an open door policy for all stakeholders in our community. Ultimately, it is our collective plan to continue the trajectory that we have been on over the past several years as we move Elwood and John H. Glenn High School students towards being future ready. We are in this together!

Finally, we would like to share our vision statement that was created by our Shared Decision Making committee, as it helps to summarize and highlight our purpose as an educational institution:

“We pride ourselves on working together to ensure that all students are provided with a safe, inclusive and engaging learning environment. Our curriculum is designed to spark intellectual curiosity, develop critical thinking, and promote the ability to work collaboratively with respect and compassion for one another. We foster self-confidence, integrity and an industrious spirit in our students so that they will reach their true potential, become lifelong learners and engaged citizens in an ever changing interdependent global community.” 

Warm Regards,

Mr. Corey McNamara
