The Galloway Advantage
The vision of The Galloway School is “to prepare our students to become first class citizens with a world class education.” Our children will not just be competing with classmates and students in their communities for the jobs of the 21st century, but will be competing with students from around the world for the great jobs of the future. Therefore, we must expand our horizon and prepare our students with the best skills and for the best colleges and universities in the world. With the Rigor/Relevance/Relationships Framework, our educational leaders have demonstrated some of the highest performance results in the nation in regard to preparing students to become academically competitive.
Academics is not the only thing the students participate in; athletics and other fun enrichments are offered, such as the arts, foreign language, and technology.
The vision of excellence for academic success, physical fitness and character education is fundamental to developing our students to become successful members of our society. We believe that The Galloway School has many advantages not offered in most of the public and private schools. With these advantages, Galloway students will become leaders, peacemakers, and problem-solvers. Our students will be prepared to explore a world of possibilities equipped with the confidence, knowledge, skills, and tenacity required in a dynamically changing environment.
The Galloway School is Committed to Small Class Sizes
One of Galloway’s unique differences is evident in our commitment to keeping our classes small. The majority of research conducted on the topic of class size as it relates to student achievement will support class size reductions. Based on research conducted by the Center for Public Education, class size can make a critical difference in student performance. A few points made in this research were:
- Smaller classes in the early grades can boost student academic achievement
- A class size of no more than 18 students per teacher is required to produce the greatest benefits
- Minority and low-income students show even greater gains when placed in small classes in the primary grades
- The experience and preparation of teachers is a critical factor in the success or failure of class size reduction programs
- Supports, such as professional development for teachers and a rigorous curriculum, enhance the effect of reduced class size on academic achievement
The Galloway School Board of Trustees has passed a policy to maintain our small class enrollments as follows:
- PK-3 – Kindergarten (14 student cap)
- 1st – 2nd (16 student cap)
- 3rd – 6th (18 student cap)
Visit a classroom in any public or private school. Take note of the quality of the student-teacher interaction and the number of students in the class. The Galloway School will never sacrifice quality instruction by enlarging our class sizes. Class size should be a key factor in choosing the best school for your child.
