Galvez Primary is a good school. Though the administration leaves very much to be desired. Some of the faculty are great, although some are left with much to be desired. I would rather put my child in private school than have to deal with the administration.

I have had two children go through this school. Although they did get an excellent education, the teachers were great and did a wonderful job, the administration, mainly the prinicipal leaves much to be desired in support of parents and her staff. I found her to be very judgemental and callous toward ...  Read more
