All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have three children in all different grades and this is the worst school they have attended. The staff is terrible, the teachers are very difficult to work with, and the nurse is very incompetent. I had to move because of the way we were treated!

The principal and the teachers are very dedicated to our students, we could not have a better faculty. Our PTSA does a wonderful job to keep enjoyment for our students as well as helping in every way they can. It is a small but tight community and we all care what happens in our school. It is simply the best....

My all of my grandchildren (4)have been students, two graduated, and 2 more will be graduating. Also, our great-grandchild attends. Having come from a suburban, NY area, I am extremely impressed with the level of education, and the performance of both teachers and students. This is a school that should be commended for its dedication to its pupils.

I love the fact that the classes are small and the children get the attention they need. There is also a lot of parent involvement,which is nice to see.

Love this school! My son who is in 1st grade was in Shen before Galway, and what a positive change I saw in my son. I can not say enough about Norm Griffen, the principal. Their are a fantastic group of individuals who help this fine school run on a daily basis.

Great school! My daughter recently transferred there and I was nervous, being a seperated father. The principal, Mr. Norm Griffin, was very friendly. I very much like the school so far.
