The Galloway School Reviews

103 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review The Galloway School
The Galloway School is an amazing place where all students are free to be who they truly learn as they choose. The teachers at all levels are fantastic and want all of their students to do well and succeed in their classes. The community around the school is unique to Galloway. It is a place where most students know each other and develop life long relationships with their peers. The athletics and arts departments encourage students to try new things and with the "no-cut" policy for theater and sports teams, every kid will get a chance to participate in what they are passionate about. I've been at galloway for 10 years and I can honestly say that Galloway is a uniquely amazing place and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
The Galloway School was a second home for me. I practically grew up there. I attended the school from 4th grade all the way through graduation, and it certainly prepared me for the real world, in its own way. Galloway was a very different school when I departed from it than from when I first enrolled. By the time graduation rolled around, I was certainly ready to leave, but I did not realized everything the school had done for me until I left. No, I do not wish to go back, but I do appreciate everything I learned there. Upon graduation, I moved from a secular, liberal society to a small town with a deep-rooted Christian culture. Everything I learned at Galloway helped me in my classes on Christianity in culture, and I was able to provide new and different perspectives for my classmates who came from school very different from Galloway.
