Robert B. Glenn High School is located in the town of Kernersville in Forsyth County, North Carolina. It is laid out in a college-campus style with numerous small buildings rather than a single large building.

Athletics[edit]

Robert B. Glenn High School offers many sports. The 1986 boys Track & Field team won the 4A State Meet. The 1992 baseball team won the 1992 4A State Championship (27–2). State championships have been won recently in wrestling. Students can participate in any sport with a few requirements, additionally, most sports require students to "try-out". The full list of Glenn's athletic programs includes: Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Dance Team, Cheerleading, Softball, Cross Country, Swimming, Tennis, Football, Volleyball, Golf, Wrestling, and Track and Lacrosse

Glenn's main rival is East Forsyth High School. In past football seasons, the Glenn-East game was one of the first games of the year. Now with both teams in the Piedmont-Triad 4A conference, it is the finale of the season.

Facilities[edit]

Glenn currently has a total of seven main classroom buildings, the newest one was built during the 2009-2010 school year and opened for the 2010-2011 school year. There are also two gyms, an auditorium, cafeteria, courtyard, dance studio, football stadium, and an office building plus a library.
