As senior year comes to a close and my peers and I succumb to senioritis, I have had more time to reflect upon my experience at Glenbrook North. One thing that has preoccupied me for the past few months was an innocent question that an incom...

The night before my first day at Glenbrook North, I was nervous. I was scared about getting lost, but I was mostly fretting about making friends. To ease my nerves, my mom told me a story that I have carried with me throughout my hi...

Hidden in the back of my bookshelf is a dusty old scrapbook that I made in my seventh grade Language Arts class. It is tawdry and tacky, just what you would expect a 13-year-old to find beautiful. While I flipped through pag...

As students at Glenbrook North, we have a lot to be thankful for. But sometimes the little things that make this school that extra bit better go unnoticed and unappreciated. Throughout my four years here, I’ve learned to ap...

I frantically attempted to balance a stack of books and binders in my right hand while casually pulling down the skirt of my Poms uniform. It didn’t work. The books fell, the skirt went up. I was a freshman—lost, nervous and embarrassed. But my uniform ac...

I’ve been tricked. As children we were told to explore interests and try new things. There were no consequences for doing as many things as possible all at once. We could mess up and no one would care, because we were all l...

We are all guilty at one point or another of saying we can’t wait to get out of Northbrook, including me. Yet as I am faced with graduating high school and leaving Northbrook behind, I wish I had been more thankful for the...

If someone had told me in eighth grade I’d be doing this, I would never have believed it. When I first heard about applying for Torch, I didn’t seriously consider it. In fact, if my English teacher hadn’t given me a little encouragement, I don’t think I would have given it a shot at all. It tur...

We’re always looking forward to something. Maybe you can’t wait to see your favorite band coming into town in two weeks. Maybe on Monday you’re wishing Friday would come a little faster so you can spend more time with fr...

We live by the clock. When the bell rings at exactly 9:13 a.m., I know that almost every student in the school will get up out of his or her desk, regardless of whether or not the teacher is done talking, and head out the door. Some will swing by the ...

For the past four years, we’ve walked the halls with you. We’ve been on teams with you, we’ve worked on projects with you, we’ve gone with you on countless unplanned weeknight adventures. We’ve talked about the things...

Last month, some members of a Glenbrook North varsity sports team made some poor decisions during the weekend of an out-of-state tournament. Granted, these poor decisions may not have been the first among members of any sports...
