Principal's Message

August 2016

 

Dear Parents,

At Galt High School our goal is to provide our students with rigorous academic instruction and Career Technical Education. We offer internships and Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) projects which allows our students to have opportunities for real-world experiences.

We are the only school in the District that currently offers the following academies and pathways:

 

Biomedical Engineering Science and Technology ( BEST) Academy

GHS is a member of the National Academy Foundation (NAF). We are one of eight schools in the state of California that have this distinction. Our programs through Project Lead the Way (PLTW) provide project based learning opportunities for students to develop critical thinking skills. We also coordinate internships with the private and public sector, for example, Verizon and the Galt Department of Public Works.

For more information regarding the BEST Academy, please contact

Mrs. Debra Crane at dcrane@ghsd.k12.ca.us

 

Agriculture Academy

Our FFA program was recognized as the top ag  program in the State of CA June 26, 2013. GHS is the only school in the Galt High School District that has an Agriculture Academy. In the last four years, two of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) state presidents have been from Galt High School. Our National Champions Marketing Plan Team earned first place in the nation in 2010-2011. We are proud to announce that the FFA state secretary for 2013-2014 is from GHS.

For more information regarding the Ag Academy, please contact

Mrs. Cheryl Reece at creece@ghsd.k12.ca.us

 

Careers with Children Pathway

Our Child Development and Careers with Children Pathway has been offered at Galt High School for over thirty years. We have successfully built a positive working relationship in placing GHS junior and senior students in the Galt elementary schools to tutor primary age students in English Language Arts or math.

Visual and Performing Arts Pathway

Galt High School has a long tradition of supporting and promoting the arts. Our ceramic students have consistently been recognized for their excellence at the State Fair Competitions. Our art program is also well received and has provided students with opportunities to continue to excel. We have had many graduates continue as students at the Art Institute of California- San Francisco. Our Drama program consistently has been recognized for its commitment to excellence and we have recently instituted a 7th period Drama production class which is open to all students in the Galt High School District.

For more information regarding the Visual and Performing Arts Pathway please contact
