Galveston Independent School District Reviews

Galveston is a great town and has a great school district. I have gone to school in Galveston since I was in Pre-K and the teachers here make me feel like family. Most teachers in this school district have 10+ years under their belt so it is comforting to know that I am getting a great education from someone who is experienced. Ball High School, where I am currently attending, offers many opportunities to make students' feel at home; we have the option to take welding classes, radio and film classes, art history classes, robotics, and much more. It is very easy to find your niche in the Galveston School District!!
