Galt High School Reviews

As a student attending my junior year at Galt High, I have created the most memorable two years here at this school. My freshman year was a smooth transition with the help of the administration and the upperclassmen. I could not stress enough how friendly and kind they were to me and my peers. I think that this school really stands out because of the school spirit and the incredible leadership of the students and teachers. But if I could change one thing about Galt High, it would be the amount of clubs provided on campus. I believe that if we provide more clubs to fit the students' interest, we might see a change of attitude towards school itself but overall Galt High is a very good school.

I like that Galt High School is very welcoming to people from everywhere at Galt high school everyone feels like family and you can be yourself and become very educated by teachers administration. We also make lifetime friends that we can talk to to and always be their for. Something I would like to see change would be sports. I would like to have more sports teams such as rugby, boys volleyball.
It is a very closly knit school where everyone knows each other. We also have the B.E.S.T academy that educates us on biomedical, Engineering, Science, and Technology fields. Renovations are curently being done to construct a new science building and the overall condition of the school is great.
