We are more than proud of our Galloway Robo OWLS! You may ask yourself what sets us apart from any other private school. Not only are we a Christian-based school where students attend weekly chapel and pray daily, we have high academics with a small-town family feel that culturally represent our greater global society. Our parent involvement is constant, diverse, loving and we have a staff that is second to none. We aren’t just supported by community partners, most of our parents represent the aerospace, medical, and engineering professions.
Academically, we provide a great amount of individualized attention due to our average teacher to student ratio being 1 to 10. Our research-based instructional models allow for accelerated learning opportunities via advanced curriculum in a digital learning environment. Every child from Pre-Kinder 3-year-olds and up are required to bring a device daily as part of our BYOD (Bring You Own Device initiative) and meeting students where they are in today’s world of technology communication, research and collaboration needs for 21st century learning.
We are committed to ‘excellence’ in academics as well as service learning and character education projects. The Galloway School gives back to the community in many ways from fundraising for St. Judes to being a Green Ribbon School. A true testament to our practices can be seen in the daily interactions between students, parents, and staff. At all times we expect best manners that show respect and care to your environment, peers, and adults which ultimately contribute to positive relationships beyond our school walls. We model what is expected, and then inspect what we expect.
The Galloway School’s high standards and Christian values are anchored and implemented by our exceptional staff. It is with great pride that we share our high rate of teacher retention and experiences ranging from Bachelor’s degrees to Doctorates. With that said, each understands that the quality of education, building good character, and passion and a heart for growing students go hand in hand.
