Welcome to Galena High School!

As your student’s principal, I am looking forward to assisting others in providing all students the guidance and support necessary to be successful in whatever path they choose to take after high school.   I believe you will find that the faculty and staff at Galena High School have a strong commitment to education and student achievement.

Students who take an active part and get involved in high school activities tend to perform better in the classroom. There are so many opportunities available for all students.

If you happen to stop by, please check out our newly remodeled cafeteria. We have added new equipment and tables. The space is so much brighter and inviting it makes me smile.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or stop in my office.  Let’s make it a great year!

Go Pirates!!

Beth Murphy, Principal
