I really love this school but mainly because I know everyone. The teachers are alright, not that different. The principal is always in funny mood and makes the learning atmosphere great! The assistant principal in the other hand, Mr.Walsh is always in a angry mood and many people are scared of him. If someone does something bad, he gives you a very harsh punishment. Also the teachers yell at you. They are never in a good mood. You get a lot of homework and tests and quizzes. Plus there are very short lunches. The students are okay but if you are not popular you won't find any one to hang out with. Many people came as new students here and they hated going to this school because they were not popular. Students will have hard times to make friends and since the academic level is higher you will see a drop in students grades. As you see the MCAS avarages for this school is 75%. That is horrible.

The school is pretty good, not the best and the school seems to have different teams, x and y, do different things. For example, one team gets to put there project in a contest and the other gets to do work, which is always my team. It is not the fairest middle school... :( The lunches are short and the teachers are making new rules that we have to follow, but they don't. Meaning if we get seen with candy or gum we get a warning and the second time we get sent to the office. Meanwhile the teachers get to chew gum and stuff. Also, teachers do not seem to understand students and some just don't care! This school needs to change. I know I might be just a 7th grader, but I think that there needs to be change now!

Teachers are strict and excellent. Fitting in is difficult if you are not 'popular' (as it is with most middle schools.

I was a studeent at Galvin Middle about 8 years ago. I noticed that there was alot of racism (mainly discriminating any type of asian students) coming from a few teachers, and alot of students. The athletic program was BS, there were students doing PE in jeans and tiny t-shirts (there should be a p.e uniform), and most teachers had favourites that they gave high scores to despite the studedents actual grade in the class. There was only a 20 minute lunch break in the entire day whivh i felt was quite atrocios. Overall the school had many flaws and needs to learn a thing or two.
