This school honestly concerns me. The staff will make hundreds of promises and follow up on none of them. The school is unclean to the point where it would look like an exaggerated set piece to some. Students have no say in their own education. Don't get me started on how poorly they handle mentally divergent students. Long story short, they're given no real help and are thrown into classes that will ruin their GPA and future capabilities. I wish I could have gone to any other high school.
I think Galt High is a great school, for as long as my child had been going their I am really impressed with the grades he brings home.
Based on my past experience, I wouldn't suggest this school to anyone. I bounced around a lot during my High School years, due to some issues in home life, and a lot to do with the schools I was attending. GHS was probably the worst of my High School experience. I started here as a freshman, and left before my first year was up. The teachers were clueless, the staff was negligent, and the students were unruly. The bulk of my negative experience was that my teachers simply didn't care about their jobs (or so it seemed). I was bored more often than not, and if it wasn't a lack in stimulation that lulled my interest, it was the teachers apathy to their students taking advantage of the lack of structure. This was in 2004, it's surely possible that there have been improvements since, but I highly doubt it.
I was a graduate of GHS in 2001. This school was beyond disappointing for its students. I achieved state-wide test scores in the 99th percentile, but its academic involvement for kids that are capable of scholastic aptitude is spotty at best. Sometimes you will get a teacher that is fantastic and involved and provides excellent educational experiences. More often than that, teachers are poorly chosen, and the curriculum they provide is sub-par. Ten years later, my little brother graduates, and the system is still struggling with the same problems, lacks luster in the same areas, and you are still lucky, LUCKY, if you get a teacher that actually bothers to educate. I would rather move than let my child attend this school.
