    "WHEN I WAS A STUDENT AT GALVA, MY EXPERIENCE IN HIGH SCHOOL WAS NOT BAD. WHEN PEOPLE SAY THAT YOU WILL MISS HIGH SCHOOL IT IS TRUE. THE TEACHERS ARE MOSTLY PASSIONATE ABOUT THEIR TEACHING, THERE WAS ONLY ONE TEACHER THAT I HAD THAT NEVER WANTED TO HELP ANYONE OR DO ANYTHING. THE FOOD WAS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING, MOST DAYS I DID NOT EAT. THE ADVISER AT THE HIGH SCHOOLS IS NICE, AND SHE MAKES SURE THAT YOU GET TAKEN CARE OF. THE RULES THERE WERE ALMOST NEVER ENFORCED AND WHEN THEY WERE, IT WAS BY ONLY ONE TEACHER. MOST OF THE RULES IN THE HANDBOOK WERE REALLY IGNORANT SUCH AS THOSE ABOUT ATTENDANCE AND THE REPERCUSSIONS SUCH AS AN OUT OF SCHOOL. OVERALL I RATED GALVA A THREE OUT OF FIVE RATING FOR MY EXPERIENCE."

    "Overall, Galva High School is a great environment. It is a small, struggling school, but they do the best they can with what they have. Majority of my teachers got to know us on a personal level and were awesome. The worst thing for me about this school is the fact that there are no AP or honors classes. I average a 97-100% in all of my classes with ease. I'm not a genius. I am just not challenged enough. My favorite part of this school has been our FFA program. We have the best teacher/advisor that truly cares for us all. I have enjoyed my time at Galva, but I'm also ready for a more exciting and challenging educational experience in college."

    "Some classes are challenging, whereas others are not. Some teachers give out homework and drill the work into you so you remember it, where others are just "there""

    "Although there are days when I am completely ready to leave school and go to a university, I do genuinely love my high school. If given the opportunity, I would choose to stay with the friendly teachers and environment with great class structure a few more years."
