    "Galena High School is a wonderful school. Teachers are deicated and motivated to help ensure their students are college and career ready. Last year alone, there were over $890,000 scholarships to colleges awarded to graduating seniors! The counselor and teachers were editing all year long trying to make sure students were able to obtain as much help as they could! The PBIS is helpful and adds positivity to the air. They care about our student's safety, making sure the weather is good enough for our children to drive the curvy, hilly, no-side drop off roads!"

    "This is the worst school ever, the kids are always out of school for no real reason, if it barely snows they send the kids home or they don't have school for several days. I have had the kids home days when its sunny out because of the weather really people you don"t live in Alaska, this school I do not recommend not to anyone. its a school full of excuses. bus the kids somewhere worth while.."

    "Galena High School is like any other high school. It's full of ungrateful teenagers who complain about "being stuck there" getting an education. They are lucky to be there, being taught by excellent teachers who care about their futures. If the students would stop goofing off and texting during class and pay attention and do their work, they might actually learn something... Like spelling and grammar, maybe. They blame all of their problems on the principal. I don't care much for her either, but she's only doing her job and they need to show her respect. Respect. That is something teenagers today lack. These problems in schools begin at home. I believe that if you are going to have kids, you need to teach them right from wrong. You need to teach them to respect their elders. The sad thing is, most parents don't care what their children do. The majority of the students, not only in this school, but in schools around the nation, are the most foul-mouthed, overdramatic, selfish, most disrespectful teenagers I've ever seen."

    "Galena is horrible. it feels like a prison now. and alot of the students feel this way, and its because of the new principal. she has no clue what shes doing, and everything is terrible now. they quorintine us in class room, from when we first walk in the door to untill we get on the bus to go home. we never see our friends at all unless were lucky enough to have them in class. every grade pretty much has there own luch hour so u cant talk to ur friends that are older. i am defiatly considering switching schools. i know that there are parents who are going to be speaking to be school board about this. the new principal need to be fired. its really sad when students actually hate going to school just bcuz of the principal."

    "I used to teach in the Galena School Distict. Now I am a parent of a Galena student. Galena School District is in major need of changes in its academic and sports programs. The school district needs better teachers at the high school. Teachers that do not enable the students to be lazy and settle for less than their best. The teachers are too accomodating to the students therefore not preparing them for the real world ahead of them. The teachers do not have control over the students in the classrooms, which makes learning difficult for the students who actually care about school and who are going to college, later. It is also uncomfortable for substitutes and presenters, the students have no respect for adult authority because the staff tolerates unruliness. Our family is seriously considering changing school districts to seek better education and sports programs in the neighboring school districts."
