This school is a great school to go to if your parents are not able to afford any other fancier school. My parents do not know English so well, but they work well with them and use the students. All the teachers there know what there doing and care about us. I think the school could improve by expanding itself a little more.

At Galaviz, the students benefit from small class sizes where each student is able to receive one on one tutoring from the teachers.

Juan B Galaviz is a great school; and when I was in school I did take serious consideration of my education and what I wanted to be when I graduate. Now it all make sense, there is a lot of Competition in education and we as students need to be educated to be self determine in all aspects of life. But most of all, I encourage you students to Learn about your culture and history. Thanks to the faculty, to the Board Members, and to the teacher now I have my destiny. Parents and students, if you want your children to have, Education, Leadership and Creativity, Juan B Galaviza is the place to be. Thank you.

I like the school. They have strict discipline. My girl, she feels safe here. where she was before they had gangs and to many fights. The teachers stay after school to tutor her. My girl has better grades. They do not put up with bad behavior and it makes somes parents mad but most parents want a safe school. My girl learned her math and did good on the Taks. The teachers are very good.

Galaviz is a school with great teachers especially the history and computer teacher. They helped my nephew who I am raising. He got into academic problems at the local high school because of poor discipline. At Galaviz his discipline and his grades improved alot. The school has zero tolerance for drugs and trouble makers. I asked the history and math teacher teacher to help my nephew and they tutored him. They gave classes after school which I believe, helped alot. My sister's girl who is from Mexico likes the school alot because they help the children who do not know alot of English. The principal and teachers care about the students and they have good discipline. They always invite the parents to visit the classes but alot of parents don't go. My sister's husband likes the school but he wishes they had a bigger building.

My son comes to this school and my son always comes home complaining about the school disciplne. He has tried to talk to the principal but he ignores the students. I thought this school was going to be excellent but it is not. Also my observation of this school is alot of students are getting suspended for any little thing that is not a reason to get suspended (ex: Tearing the corner of a handout sheet) my son got suspended for three days just for that. Its the same punishment the principal gives to the students that get into a fight and students that smoke in the back of the school. Also the lunch that they serve is horrible, I do not recommend this school to any high school seeking students, because its quality is very poor.

All the information that Juan B Galaviz is giving to the public is nothing but lies. Students are treated unfairly and they dont supply none of the activities that are in the information above. One thing is that there are very good teachers, but the students or the teachers are never supported by the principal. After this school year, my son is going to go to a different school where he can at least be respected as a student without getting suspended or getting detention over any little thing. I think that the principal should listen to his students and his staff members and he would realize an actually listen to the people that are always around him but always ignores.

The administration is unfair and unreasonable, they take the discipline to their own hands, and some students may get in trouble for one reason while another doesn't. The teachers are great and take the time to teach well, but the administration is always forcing teachers to feel their job may be taken if they step up to complain about the infairness.
