Galena High School Ratings & Reviews

February 26, 2013 Submitted by a parent
I have been pleased in almost every aspect of the education my grandaughter is recieving at GHS. However, I have found that too much emphasis is placed on athletics and virtually none on its music and dramatics. The sad fact is that the staff member responsible for student scheduling not only discourages these classes and activities, but does not hide their obvious scorn towards those kids who wish to join. It also is apparent that some of the GHS staff are unsupportive of the various choirs and deem them unneccessary. If your child has an interest in any of these activities, I strongly advise that a parent or guardian attend every scheduling meeting with them. There is also a problem with bullying. It is mainly verbal. If an accomplished athlete or child of a prominant citizen is the culprit, chances are that nothing will be done about it. Even with these two complaints, the benefits my grandaughter recieves outweigh the bad and I wouldn't want her in any other school.

I have had two kids go through the Galena School District. It was a wonderful educational experience for both.

Galena High School has 13 Illinois State Scholars this year! I continue to be impressed by this school, and my children have had a top notch education here. Two have gone on to earn their Bachelor and master degrees, and agree that GHS was instrumental in their success at college.

With only 30% of students prepared for a 4 year college, a high teen pregnancy rate and a lack of new technology training this is not a great school. If you have to live in Galena and have high school age students, think private school.

I am very impressed by staff at the school, as well as the students.
