The Glendale High School Jazz Band performed at the Glendale Union High School District Jazz Clinic yesterday. Everyone got a chance to improvise a solo for professional saxophone player and jazz band director Paul Brewer. The kids did a great job!
March 27, 2022- The Glendale Conservation Society (GCS) vegetated the Rio Salado Habitat Restoration Area.

This event was the very first one planned, organized, and executed by the club's very own officers - President Lesly Castillo and Treasurer Jenny Gonzalez - and over 20 GCS members showed up on a Sunday morning to assist with the project. In the span of a few hours, the students planted over 50 desert plants and removed a variety of invasive species.

Three of Glendale's Tri-M Music Honor Society seniors completed their capstone recital March 28th. This is one component of the process these students have completed to earn the Arizona State Seal of Arts Proficiency on their high school diploma. Congratulations Juan, Sheyla and Kendra!
Monday March 21, 2021 - Glendale High School sophomore Randy LeGendre performs the National Anthem at the Spring Training game held at the Peoria Sports Complex.
Integrated Science students attempted to roast marshmallows by conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer methods. They had to use multiple scientific tools in their exploration and log their observations. By the end of class, they had to conclude which method of heat transfer was the most effective at roasting a marshmallow.
On Saturday March 19th, students from Glendale High School’s National Honor Society joined Master Gardener Deb, as well as students from Apollo High School, to rejuvenate the succulent garden in front of Glendale’s Main Public Library. We planted new succulents, vines, transplanted and removed some plants, and provided protection (from the peacocks) in the form of netting.

AP Physics students are currently studying energy. Using a pendulum, students can measure the height displacement to determine the initial amount of gravitational potential energy. Using a motion sensor at the bottom of the pendulum, students can measure the velocity to determine the final kinetic energy. Together, this information is used to prove the Law of Conservation of Energy. Never a dull moment in AP Physics!


We will be closed Monday in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Our community based students were kind enough to invite our physics student to join them in a lab over non-Newtonian fluids. Together the classes created oobleck. The community based students took the lead on this one and helped guide the lab and making the substance. Students then tested the properties of this interesting substance by placing an egg inside it and then dropping it from the top of the classroom. None of the eggs broke! So we decided to try to drop it from higher, the top of the media center. The egg survived! This was a great collaboration between our classes yet again.

Physics and special education students worked together to study the physics of motion. By placing a frictionless cart of a track, we found that we could pull any amount of mass using a modified Atwood’s machine and just a simple 50g hanging mass! The incorporation of technology into the lab made data collection fun and exciting!

Physics students have decided to put their learning into action. Physics students were lucky enough to get paired up with a special needs student to really apply their knowledge and skills. After studying forces and free fall, students were tasked to create a device that would increase drag force in order to decrease acceleration of a falling object. In addition, students were tasked within that same device to also create a function that would increase the time in which the normal force acted in order to decrease that force. With these two components, students attempted to save an egg from being dropped from the top of our stadium (60m high). They had a success rate of 85%!


Glendale High School Winter Spirit Week concluded with an all campus assembly, featuring a performance from GHS Cheer and a few courageous teachers.


We will be closed for Thanksgiving Thursday November 24th and Friday November 25th. We're back Monday November 28th.

Heads up!

AP Physics students are studying circular motion.

By creating a tension force in the string with a hanging mass from the bottom, the tension can become the resultant Centripetal Force acting on the object which causes it to turn. By timing how long it takes to complete one period, and knowing the radius of the circle in which the object is moving, students can calculate the centripetal acceleration. Using Newton’s 2nd law, F = ma, students can then determine the mass of the object that is moving in a circle.

The heavier the hanging mass (thus additional gravitational force, thus greater tension force, thus greater centripetal force), the faster the mass has to move in its circular path.

When History and Science Collide:
AP World History students complete their "Autopsy of an Empire" project by using both scientific and historical knowledge in this cross-curriculum assignment. Students determine why one of the Islamic empires collapsed by dissecting the civilization as if it was a person who died. The Head signifies significant leaders, the arms represent the military, the heart is the culture or religious beliefs, and the feet show us trade routes and the economy etc....... etc...... Once the student has determined how the empire fell, they then come up with a real diagnosis that would cause that organ, or body part to lose functionality.


Wishing the Cardinal Marching Band good luck at state championships this Saturday!


Glendale High's School Resource Officer Waldron with Glendale Police Dept. donated a gift card to one student who recently lost everything after someone broke into their house.

Mr. Wilson's Coding Classes & the Future Business Leaders of America Coding Club visited the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe for their University of Advancing Technology Experience event.

The students got to learn about all the university has to offer, the types of courses they would take, all the different technology at their disposal if they were to be students, as well as learn about the vibrant campus life at the school. Students took tours, attended mock classes, and got to meet with admissions & financial aid representatives to learn about the process of becoming a student at UAT.

Chemistry students are studying the structure of the atom this week. Using an energy level template, students are using colored bead which represent the different sub-atomic particles to create Bohr model representations of the atoms. By just knowing how many sub atomic particles there are, these super smart chemistry students are able to identify the element, its symbol, mass, charge, and whether or not it is a common or uncommon isotope.
