Glenbard North High School, or GBN, and locally referred to as "Glenbard" or "North", is a public closed campus four-year high school located at the corner of Kuhn Road and Lies Road in Carol Stream, Illinois, a western suburb of Chicago, Illinois, in the United States. It is part of Glenbard Township High School District 87, which also includes Glenbard South High School, Glenbard East High School, and Glenbard West High School. The North campus is the largest among the four high schools in Glenbard Township District 87,[citation needed] serving approximately 2,200 students from Carol Stream, Glendale Heights, Hanover Park, and Bloomingdale.


Glenbard North opened its doors in August 1968. It was the third of the four Glenbard high schools to open. The first principal of Glenbard North was Raymond Livingston. Burt Weber served Glenbard North as principal from 1971–1989, having the longest tenure of any Glenbard North principal at 18 years. The football field, Weber Field, was named in his honor.


Glenbard North teams are called the Panthers. These athletic teams compete in the DuKane Conference. The school's teams also compete in state championship tournaments sponsored by the Illinois High School Association (IHSA).

The school sponsors interscholastic sports for men and women in basketball, cross country, gymnastics, golf, soccer, tennis, track & field, and volleyball. Men may also compete in baseball, football, and wrestling. Women may compete in badminton, cheerleading, swimming, and softball. While not sponsored by the IHSA, the school also sponsors a pom team for women, and a district-wide ice hockey team for men.[2]
