The current building known as Glenbard West High School opened in 1922 as Glenbard Township High School; the first of the district's high schools. The school was built in the style of a castle, complete with roof turrets.
My brothers, sister, and I all went to Glenbard West High School. We graduated in 1985, 1991, 1993, and 2001. We have a lot of good memories, everything from athletics to clubs to being fans at the games.
