Glenbard West Hilltoppers

Updated on October 18, 2015

Glenbard West Hilltoppers

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.

This page highlights some of the achievements of Glenbard West.
