I just want to say that I'm a graduate from this school in 1992. For anybody worried about the lack of small-town school opportunities, I'll tell you the truth. I was a highly gifted art student, and there was not adequate classes available for my abilities. So the administration created a custom curriculum for me, created the classes I needed, and saw to it that I graduated with the education that I desired. I now work in Television as a creative services writer and producer. My successful career led me to work in Tucson, Arizona, Raleigh, North Carolina, and I now work in Sacramento California. I never saw a lack of opportunity. I just went out and grabbed it. A few years ago I drove through Galatia on a road trip. It was eerie standing outside that old gray building after nearly twenty years. On my way out of town I stopped for gas, and there was my old retired principal. I apologized to him for being a troublemaker (believe me... I was) and he told me he remembered none of that, and all that mattered was that I was able to a good education. I'm so very thankful for that.

This school, although very small, is definitely able to produce amazing results in any child who attends. As a former student, I have watched family after family flock to Galatia just to give their child a quality education. Many people think that because we are such a small school that there are no possibilities here. I beg to differ... Test scores are higher than a lot of well known schools in the area. The sports programs are absolutely amazing!! Every individual is treated with the same respect and integrity. These are jus a few reasons why I would recommend this school. I give it a 10!
