Glen Mills has a variety of clubs and activities which provide the students with entertainment while promoting growth and responsibility.
The Battling Bulls Club is the student government for the school and supports the development of positive student leadership, the growth of the pro-social normative culture and presents an opportunity for students to be recognized for their positive behavior and personal growth.
The club members coordinate numerous activities on campus, hold club and leadership meetings, take responsibility for monitoring campus activities and coordinate student jobs. All students are eligible to become members of this high-status club based on their behavior and on recommendation of their peers and unit staff.
The Glen Mills Schools operates a Student Union similar to those located on college campuses around the country. The Student Union serves as a meeting place for our student body to enjoy electronic games, billiards, ping pong and is equipped with two snack bars where low cost sandwiches, pizza, sodas, ice cream and milkshakes can be purchased.
