I loved most of the teachers there! I also enjoyed the technology pathway known as the BEST Academy. However, I did not like the malicious behavior of some students. Besides that, my experience at Galt High has been great!

I think the school district does a great job with the resources provided to prepare students for future opportunities with jobs and schools. The student career fairs are always very helpful, although I think there could be more information provided to students on how to get into college and what it may be like. I think overall, there are very good teachers there who provide more than just teaching to the students and I also think they did a great job to best get school support and spirit from all students.I liked the variety of classes that were offered for what we were given because it really helped me explore my interests more and what I may want to do as a job in the future.
What I like about galt is it’s academics the teachers really work hard to help you and encourage you to do better in school. What they could change is the food I feel like it’s the same thing over and over again. They are also increasing the prices of the food which is making it harder for kids to buy. They also need to cut down the racism going around Liberty Ranch Highschool . They also need to plant more trees the heat is really hits you during the summer days and beginning of school. They should also fix the coolers in all the classes. As well as filter the water fountains because the water coming out doesn’t look good to drink.
