    "GHS is a small school that has a number of strengths and weaknesses. I feel that the school's strengths are in its math, music, and English Departments and are weaker in the sciences. There are a number of opportunities to be involved in extracurricular activities; however, not all of the teachers are effective at teaching / coaching these activities."

    "The quality of education I received over the four years I attended Galena High School was the best. Teachers are committed to helping students with anything, whether it's before, during and after school. The environment is safe and welcoming. The only concerns I have are the facilities, as the building is extremely old. GHS also has multiple clubs, activities and sports to participate in; There is something for everyone to do."
