Galena High School provides an amazing environment for students to learn. First of all, the teachers are very personable and are always willing to help any student with any questions they may have. Secondly, the school always provides teachers and staff with the best equipment possible to ensure the best education possible for students. Finally, Galena High School makes sure that their students are taken care of both at home, and on campus. There is one thing that I would love to see changed, however. I believe that our school needs to bring more attention to the dangers of underage drinking. There is a lot of underage drinking that goes on in our school. I believe this is because students are not aware of how severe the consequences of underage drinking are. If the school were to put more effort into educating students about the dangers, the percentage of students who are involved in underage drinking may decrease significantly.

I have went to Galena High School all of my life. I think that this district is an excellent place to grow and learn. The school is very small so students get a lot of one on one time with teachers, and form bonds that wouldn't be possible in big schools. The facilities and sports are great. Academics are great as well. As an upperclassmen, there are opportunities to earn college credits. The only thing I wish could change is there would be more variety in the sports and clubs, as well as the classes available, although I think that this goes along with being such a small school.
We had a lot of opportunities to take college classes which got me farther along in college because I had over half of my credits already. One thing galena has is an amazing technology department and that will take you far in life. I didn't realize how set up for college Galena had made me until I actually got to college. Everyone knows everyone and the teachers create friendships with their students.
