New Students to Glenbard East – Glenbard East utilizes the iPad and digital curriculum/applications to deliver instruction to students. We will ship iPads and instructions to incoming freshmen and transfer students’ homes after online registration and payment have been completed. We strongly encourage you to register as soon as possible so we can deliver the device and instructions in a timely manner. This will provide your student as much time as possible to become familiar with the device and digital curriculum, prior to the start of school.

Glenbard will bill the AP exam fee on your student’s fee statement and will waive one AP exam fee per year, per student. AP exams are $94 each; AP Seminar & AP Research exams are $142 each. More information regarding the AP courses and exams can be located on our school’s website.
