Glenbard West Tour

'Castle on the Hill' Tour

Glenbard West Class of 1970
50th Reunion

Guided tours of Glenbard West will be available Saturday morning between 11am and noon. Join us and retrace your footsteps, find your locker, locate your seat in the auditorium (is that your gum?) and pick up the vibes of good times past.

Tour the "Castle on the Hill" 

There have been many changes to Glenbard West since we graduated in 1970.

Biester Gym is expanded and has been renovated. A new three-story Science Wing has been added to the northeast side of the school. A new library now welcomes students where the girl's gym once was. Classrooms and hallways have been renovated, and (finally!) central air conditioning now keeps everyone cool.

Curious? Just want to find your locker again?  Come join us for a tour of Glenbard West High School on Saturday morning to resurrect past memories and see the improvements.

The tour ends in the classroom of one of Glenbard's English teachers, Steve Wiersum.  He has turned the classroom into a Glenbard history perspective by decade.  Steve Wiersum has written a book entitled "Glenbard West High School: A History."  It's available for purchase on Amazon for $17.99 [https://www.amazon.com/Glenbard-West-High-School-History/dp/1532078277].  All profits go to Glenbard's English Department.

All Reunion activities will adhere to COVID safety protocols appropriate for Illinois October 2021.
