Galt Joint Union Elementary School District Reviews

I like the Galt Elementary schools because they always felt like home. The teachers were very loving and kind and made us into amazing human beings and taught us very well. I had an exceptional time as a kid being able to have fun while learning and being able to do different things at recess, go to the library, p.e., and the music room.

I have had struggles throughout my high school years. Staffs do a very good job about helping students, according to my personal experience. I have special connections with more than one teacher with whom i can talk about my personal life with and ask for advice. A student is able to view their teachers as friends and not just teachers. Sports are very supporting as well, there is no competition. It's more about the fun. Despite all these advantages, there are some disadvantages. Schedules. Each year is a struggle to take all the classes a student desires to. One always overlapped over the other. Twice already I was obligated to decide between two important classes for me.
