    "The only thing I really loved about Galeton High School was the teachers. They are the only reason I ever pass by the school anymore. After hearing so many terrible things about the students who go there now like drugs, teen pregnancy, and cheating, I would never want my future kids to go there. The teachers, though, are really what makes this school run. Sure, Galeton received a bronze standing among national high schools and the reason for it was the students, but I really believe that the teachers' patience and expertise are what makes this school approachable. Every department has either one or two dedicated, preparing teachers at the helm. And after graduation, students want to go back and visit them. They're not just strangers or teachers anymore. They're friends."

    "Eventually, just like anywhere, students find their place. The acceptance is pretty high, except in the midst of the other members of someone's clique. The cafeteria is probably the most cliquey place of all. There's the populars, teen parents, jocks, idiots, outcasts/nerds, sluts, and social outliers. It's not healthy but those are just the friend groups that develop. Everyone belongs somewhere, not everywhere. For example, toddlers don't belong in bars. Outcasts don't belong with the jocks. That's what high school does to kids. It shows them the limitations of life. College pushes the boundaries a bit, allowing students to make friends outside of their core friend group while still maintaining that initial group. I feel that students at Galeton are afraid of being anything beside heterosexual for fear of judgement. I have an openly gay best friend in college. I could've never had that in high school, not because there weren't any homosexual students but because no one knew that they were. We could've been friends and I would've never known."

    "I loved the teachers. They are all very personable and down-to-earth. Some have a more overbearing sort of teaching style, but they do it well. The overbearing ones are the ones that really make you fight for that A. I respect that. Other teachers like to infuse fun with learning, which is the way it should be. Make education enjoyable and something to look forward to. Teachers at Galeton want to do that, but I feel like the students make it so they don't want to. The teachers are driven and very eager to hear about students' post-graduation successes."

    "I found it exceptionally easy to receive A's at Galeton. I'm not saying that in a boastful way, but working hard usually gets you an A. If you put any effort into your work, you'll get a B. Going a bit above and beyond will get you that A. My only problem is that the classes are not weighted. Personally, it didn't matter to me because I took mostly art classes. People that don't make art or study it think it's easy. I don't think it's easy, but I'm not going to fight them. For the purpose of this review, we'll assume that art is easy. I took art classes and ended up with higher grades than my genius best friend who took college algebra, advanced biology, advanced chemistry, American government, and physics all in his senior year. He did exceptionally well in every course, but because the classes weren't weighted, he fell out of the running for valedictorian. My class' valedictorian took home ec. classes, which, even though art is easy, are easier. The guidance counselor makes scheduling easy and is sure to meet with everyone before the end of the school year. The workload isn't too much, but it's definitely enough to keep students busy."
