I agree with the Teacher's post CCSD should look into Fay Galloway. The principal is a person who should not be honored with the authority to run a school with impressionable children. I have seen first hand how the principal has taken some amazing teachers and cornered them, talked down to them, even causing them to cry so they leave. Its sad that this person has any say with the education of the students. The teachers who aren't harassed or forced to leave are wonderful!

New this year to Fay Galloway and the first thing I noticed is how involved both the parents and teachers with the children. I'm very happy with them and glad that I made the switch. PTA is wonderful. They also do a lot more than the school my child was previously at. I don't understand how anyone could complain.

My 2 kids attend school here. The office staffs, teachers and principals are great! Whenever I have questions and concerns, they are good in follow through. I never had any problem with my kids teacher. They are helpful and will work with you if you ask questions or ask help and assistance in helping your kids reach their academic goals. Great job and thank you Fay Galloway!

The Kindergarten classes have far too many students in them. I feel very uninformed about what goes on in the classroom, the teacher does not give any updates. I believe she relies on 5 year olds to accurately bring information home. It maybe because I work, and cannot be there to volunteer, but I really feel out of the loop. Due to intensive work at home, my 5 year old is excelling. My next child will not attend kindergarten at this school.

The school's principal arbitrarily changed my son's schedule from am to pm without first discussing with me. I can't do the pm due to medical appointments from an accident I was in. Lack of communication is a major concern.

My son has been attending Galloway for four years now and loves it. I am very impressed with the faculty and have never had a problem. This school has active PTA and Cub Scouts and is geared toward family involvement and encourages parents to volunteer at the school.

My son had a terrible experience at Fay Galloway. The principal is unfriendly. The Assistant principal however, is very classy and professional. Many of the teachers who have taught at Fay Galloway for years have slowly weeded out. Thank God my son is now attending a magnet school, where he is now flourishing.

Galloway is a wonderful school, that encourages parent involvement in the classroom. Many of the teachers have grown up in the same community, and are very dedicated. As far as PTA's go, I have never seen so many dedicated moms and even dads and grandparents working hard to make our school a better place. I'm grateful my kids go to a school like this.

It's not so much about Faye Galloway school because my child is doing ok for a child his age. It's the PTA that I have a problem with.

I am not overly fond of this school. I have two children who attend this school and both have reading difficulties and problems in math. Neither have received any additional help from the school after numerous requests. I have had to find outside help that is costing me a small fortune. I teach my children at home every evening, spending several hours going over what was covered in school because they don't understand their teachers. This school has numerous programs for gifted kids but if a child has problems they have nothing to help them. No afterschool tutoring of any kind, No peer help, No teachers who are willing to give extra time. I don't know what other parents do, but we are a two person working household and can not go to the school everyday to be a teachers aide, or room mother.

I have one child currently enrolled at Fay Galloway and one that went there in 97. Both children loved going to school. My son was in the Gate program, where he was put in many challenging situations. I believed it helped him prepare for high school where he is in the honors program now. My daughters kindergarten experience was not a good one, but that didn't kill her love of school. She had a fantastic 1st grade teacher, which is now her 2nd grade teacher. I am sure that 2nd grade will be as great as 1st. I would recommend this school.

In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science.
