Galion High School is a great public school to be apart of. The teachers are knowledgeable of their subjects and can be easily talked to. Grades are appropriately given upon hard work and quality. Campus wear is a good way to represent the school in formal attire. However, the school needs to improve on healthier choices at lunch and in general make more quality foods to choose from.

I really enjoy going to Galion High School. There are many opportunities including academics and sports. Gallon has mad an effort to include as many sports, clubs, and other activities provide the most successful high school experience and college preparation possible. The only thing that I would like to see in the future is more rigorous course work. Only specific classes are available that include accelerated course work so I would like more opportunities to take classes that are weighted heavier. I do appreciate the opportunity to take free college classes during my high school career.
I went to Galion High School all four years and recently graduated in 2017. Overall, my experience was good. However, sometimes I felt like teachers and administration cared more about dress code than they did about academics.
