Galena Park Independent School District Reviews

I can fairly say that I had an enjoyable experience throughout my time in this district. I graduated from North Shore Senior High School and to be honest it was a rough four years but many teachers helped me out and got me ready for what college was all about. They taught me everything I needed to know for me to succeed in life and in college and thats more than I can ask for. I went from that high school to the Pennsylvania State University which is a huge accomplishment in my eyes. One thing I would really like to see change in this district though is their fund management for the different after-school activities. Most of the budget goes to sports, mainly football and it honestly breaks my heart because many of the arts such as choir, band, and theatre don't see as much support financially. But overall it was a great experience and I'm glad to be an Alum from this district!

Galena Park Independent School District is a great district. The academics are great this district teaches from elementary to high school. This district shows everything a student needs to know in order to be very well prepared for the future. I was a former student two years ago I graduated June 7, 2015. I had a really great experience on the four years I attended there. Teachers were very friendly and great, they would always try to help you on anything you needed. The constables there make you feel very safe and secure , they would always be looking out for any trouble to keep us safe. This district had a variety of clubs and activities you could join, it could be from band to swimming. The best part about this school was the food! it was very delicious and the great thing is that they always had variety of everything. I'm so glad to say I attended this great school.
I would like to see more leadership out of the teachers and assistant principals and at least care about the students' future and prepare them more for college and the real world instead of just only thinking about earning a paycheck. Sadly because of greedy companies, that's all that matters now these days is just for teachers thinking that just because they are superior over a young adolescent person means they can get away with anything. And not only that, the fact that people are so lazy and blind of what's some of the delinquents that there are in schools, they're more focused on those kids paying to attend that school than their actual behavior and how they are a distraction to other more important students with more future potential and better careers ahead of them. It's that the so called "LEADERS" at those schools aka the principals and assistant principals and teachers and even administrators care only about the students' parents giving them their HARD EARNED money.
