My grand kids go to liberty school and they both love their teachers the teachers help them when help is needed and they really listen to their students


Posted January 31, 2011

The Teachers and Administration at the Galena schools have created such a wonderful environment. My children have excelled in their classrooms. They enjoy their teachers. Their testing has been excellent. The overall perception of the school district has improved with an almost 180 degree turn around. The building blocks they put in place several years ago has really created a wonderful culture. I am very happy that I chose Galena schools for my children to attend. I would highly recommend this district to all those looking to upgrade.
