Galena Park High school is an excellent place to learn. The teachers are above your expectations. They find the time for you to come after school and get help in certain topics of the curriculum. Our TAKS scores have improved highly thanks to saturday and afterschool tutorials. We are a proud exemplary school district as well. Our Fine Arts program indeed does thrive. As we are now have the best concert band in region 19.

Unfortunately, Galena Park does not meet the standards of what should be considered good education. The school consistently scores below state average on the TAKS exam, which is by far one of the easiest standardized tests given in the nation. I had the chance to attend GPHS when many of its strongest teachers in the Social Studies and English teachers were still there. However, math and science is greatly watered down at this school. When I applied to some top-tier out of state universities, the guidance counselor told me not to because I wouldn't make and that I should go to community college even though I was ranked 11th in my class. (I did get accepted to all universities I applied to out of state, and am doing wonderfully). Fine Arts thrives tremendously at GPHS. That is something I was thankful to be a part of. Disappointing academics.

GPHS is by far, an excellent place of learning, especially in the areas of English and History, as well as Fine Arts and Athletics. The Math and Science departments, however, are horrible. The level of parental involvement is lacking, and I feel this is part of the reason that students do not learn as well in math and science. There are no safety issues, and discipline issues are minimal. While some of the measures do not seem fair, I personally became a more responsible student as a result. It is, by far, a wonderful school. That is, of course if you plan to get by without knowing math or science. Also, the ROTC program is great!

I think it is a great school. The learning curriculim can be ranged as one of the most possitive and efficient in my opinion as a parent. As for the remodeling of the building, I love it! I give it two thumbs up! My son was being bullied around and I thank the lord that the school handled the situation with such care. This is an exemplary school.
