Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Galloway classrooms are different, and even the idea of a classroom is unique here. Though we do deliver instruction in classroom settings, teachers and students aren't bound by them. Our students could be doing anything from creating a video to preparing for a debate or writing a screenplay. Students at Galloway are thoughtfully engaged in learning, and are an active part of the learning process.

Parent involvement details They are all members of the dynamic parent volunteer organization at The Galloway School we refer to, collectively, as the Great Scots. Within this group, parents deliberately involve themselves in a variety of volunteer opportunities that serve to enrich campus life at Galloway. From arts and athletics to special events and field trips, and everything in between, there is truly something for every parent who is interested in volunteering at Galloway.
Approach to addressing and preventing bullying Galloway focuses on preventing bullying through our social emotional learning program. All teachers have been trained on activities to help teach children empathy, compassion, and the skills needed for children to understand why bullying is bad. Galloway is a community where students and teachers alike do not tolerate bullying. Bullying is handled on a case by case basis.
