Welcome Back, from Mr. Houston

Welcome Back!
Posted on 08/10/2017

Dear Galesburg High School Parents and Community,

As principal of Galesburg High School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year!  We are getting excited to have students back in our building filling our hallways with energy and enthusiasm.  It is our mission to help every student feel welcomed, connected, and a part of our Galesburg High School family.  Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be college, career and life ready upon graduation.  At Galesburg High School, we have great teachers who spend countless hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in the learning process.  There are a wide variety of activities, clubs and organizations that we encourage our students to become a part of during their tenure here at GHS.  We believe that all students should graduate from Galesburg High School prepared for the demands of postsecondary education, meaningful and relevant careers to our region and effective citizenship.   

I am honored to serve as the principal of Galesburg High School.  It has truly been a privilege to be a part of this community for 18 years where parents, teachers, and students strive to build positive relationships that support our district mission statement “Helping students achieve their dreams”.  

Once again, welcome back!  And go “STREAKS”!


Jeff Houston

GHS Principal
