The Galloway School Reviews

I regret the decision to send my child to this school for high school. Though there are some excellent teachers who truly care about the students, the administration is fair; the school is very politically correct; the student body over the past 4-6 years has veered towards your typical rich kid club; the college admission results are alright but not great. Most kids who get into top tier schools usually do so because of alumni connections. Compared to pier school (Paideia, Westminster, Lovett, Pace, Woodward, Holy Innocents), college admissions are subpar. Wish that we had sent our child to local public schools. Result would have been the same. Would have avoided the rich kid PC culture.

Went to Galloway my entire life(2-19yo) and it made me into who I am today. The thing people don't like about this school is that no one is going to force you to succeed or make you want to do well. The teacher and your peers will give you the tools and support you need in order to find your own path and flourish -- if you don't, that is on you and no one else. Some people can't handle that kind of freedom and environment and dislike the school because of it. If you can learn to be self-motivated and use all of the tools that are given to you at this school you can literally achieve anything your heart desires.
We were at Galloway for many years and were major proponents until the middle school years. The families are welcoming, particularly in Early Learning. If your child has no issues and is very self-directed, he/she will do fine. However, if your child needs any extra support or structure to flourish, I would not recommend Galloway. They simply do not have the resources, infrastructure, or support to help students with learning issues such as ADD (despite what they may say). The school also experienced a high amount of teacher turnover in middle school while we were there. We also found their method of grading and communication/update of our child's progress to be weak. Overall...strong experience in elementary school but mediocre at best in middle school.
