I think that Galt High School is a very friendly place, the office staff are friendly, the teachers are determined to help the students to succeed in life. The school has an excellent STEM program that teaches students depending on what they want to be when the graduate high school they can learn the basics about a specific career. The classes combine both hands on learning and in note taking.

The athletics department has coaches that are a combination of coaches who studied to become a coach, and coaches who played the sport that that they are coaching.

The school is very diverse and has students and staff from all walks of life. The school is very safe, the school has a variety of clubs and after school activities.

I enjoyed my experience at Galt High School. I met new people, made new friends, and met new teachers that were cool with everyone. The teachers were the ones that made me look forward for the next class with them. One thing I would like to see change in Galt High School would be the bell schedule. The bell schedule is a block schedule and I feel as if we don’t have enough time for everything to be covered because it’s a block schedule and it’s only for one semester. Some classes are every other day for the whole year which, in my opinion, is good because it doesn’t make the student feel short on time.
Every single year at Galt High was a good one, I’ve made so many new friends and I’ve gotten to experience a very family based school where everyone is friendly and helpful. Our school has always been so different from others in my opinion because we do our best to involve everyone and maintain that family atmosphere. Most of the teachers are fantastic and will do whatever they can to help you and push for your success.
