Great place for bigots, homophobes, racists and rich white guys

Great spot to hang out with a bunch of bigoted homophobes and racists. A few teachers get away with saying very clearly derogatory things to students.

Worst school in dunedin

As an ex student this school is horrible the faculty apart from a few who have since left make an effort to offer any help to those with learning disabilities not that those with learning disabilities deserve more attention they will look for any chance to get rid of such students like myself as they i suppose dont want to ruin their image. Day boys get favoured over boarders to another level where one kid in my year would hit and punch people but it was fine because he had a learning disability but because I would struggle in class and occasionally be disruptive and to be fair slightly argumentative when they belittled me I was kicked out of the hostel but not the school itself also the students love to show off their families wealth so if you aren’t an arrogant c*nt you shouldn’t go here they also have many students of the 2023 leavers who have sexually assaulted many girls from neighbouring schools but when the school is called out they do nothing proving my point that the faculty is as bad as the students

Half the students are bigots and the other half are also bigots but with funny excellence endorsements.

John Mcglashan school: Student

Coming from a students perspective:

Bloody great experience, great teachers, great facilities and great students.

Although the school has a distinctive culture and a divide between day boys and boarders which has resulted in quite a conundrum in terms of schoolyard antics.

Another aspect to consider is the culture against sexuality, although all boys are open to people being homosexual there tends to be a trend of a difference between what they say and how they act towards the students which means the majority of boys only come out after leaving the school.
