I liked the small town school experience that I received at Galva Highschool. However, the thing that the school lacks is a good education system. The teachers do not care about the students. They are very selfish. They do not care about the students future or education. They seem to only care about the paycheck they are receiving and not about the students grades, life, or education. There is a lot of gossip amongst the teachers and can give the idea to students that it is alright to spread rumors. They do not set a good example to students. I believe that some of the staff should be reviewed not all but some.

The faculty are very nice and more than willing to help you exceed.
Every year, more clubs and organizations are created to cater to the interests of the students. Students are allowed to create clubs themselves so long as they find a sponsor within the school (which is more than easy to do.)
The student body as a whole are very kind and supportive of their fellow students. Everyone's friends with everyone in a school like Galva Jr./Sr. High School.
Students are also allowed to take college classes concurrently with their high school classes from their freshman year: however, this is totally optional. This is a great program for exceptionally brilliant students. Many students graduate from high school while also graduating from Black Hawk College with their associates degree.
There are not a whole lot of diversity, mostly because Galva is a small, rural Midwestern town. However, students are accepting of all ethnicities and racism is practically nonexistent in this school.
Going to this high school felt like being in another home. It's a small school where everybody knows everybody. It's a great place to learn with friends. If I could change one thing about the school, it would be how some classes are taught and at a sort of difficulty level. We offered dual credit courses, but was only allowed to access them once you were an upperclassman. It's nice to wait and let students explore what is the beginning of high school, but it's also nice to challenge students a little more so that we would be a little more prepped for college.
