Posted October 18, 2004

I moved to Galloway in August of 2003. My son was floundering in his previous school even with extra attention. In Reeds Road his progress has soared, I watch him do his homework started byhimself and his grades go from F's from his previous school to A's and B's with self confidence and a GREAT teaching staff. Especially your SPECIAL ED teachers. Dylan is now proud to show me his papers.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
