Not necessarily a bad school, but being a small school favoritism is an issue among the staff and administration. It offers a decent variety of sports but as far as arts and club activities, it has next to nothing to offer. High school band has less than 20 students enrolled with no vision for growth, and there are no vocal music or theater programs. Academically they have their bases covered but it isn't excellent by any means. Overall, Galena is just your average small town school stuck in their old-fashioned ways.
