Galway Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

May 12, 2017 Submitted by a parent
My child has been in this school since kindergarten. She is in 3rd grade now and has made advances academically and socially. The school provides a socially nurturing and academically challenging environment. The principal collaborates well with parents and believes in giving opportunities to all kids. The teachers are energetic. For a school of its size (about 800 kids), the school feels small because there is a great sense of community. Overall, I consider this school an asset to the community.

Staff turnover is very high here because teachers are not treated well. The focus is all on test scores rather.

This is a great school with phenomenal staff members. My children love going to school. There are lots of events that the children can express themselves freely. I love how talented and gifted the children are. Of course the school wouldn't be complete without the direction of the wonderful selfless Dr. Fuller. I am proud to say my children are a part of the Galway team!

People who say 'back in my day things were different' really don't add much to the conversation as they have no tangible evidence about the current climate. I came from private school and thought private school was the answer for my kids. When things didn't work out I was reluctant (i.e. scared) to send my kids to public school, especially after reading comments here about Galway. Almost immediately I found the environment remarkable. The teachers in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade were amazing. They were responsive and accommodating and used a very inclusive, holistic approach to education. They answered all my questions and worked with my child to get them to the level they need to be intellectually and socially. Staff is friendly and the Principal (Dr. Fuller) is the type of leader you want. She is effective, extremely intelligent when dealing with every day challenges, and fights for her school and its resources. While I can understand some people may have had negative experiences or they may complaints about a school with 800 kids (that's a junior high attendance) with only having 1 assistant principal, 2 secretaries, and a lack of resources from the county but that is hardly the school's fault. The staff does an incredible job with the limited resources they get and my child has never been happier than at Galway. Conflict resolution between students is a HUGE management approach made by the leadership in the school and the teachers adhere to an environment that is predicated on positive.The only reason I don't give 5 stars is because MCPS does not seem to provide enough resources for the school.

I moved when it was time for my kid to start kindergarten. That should make my opinion of this school clear. Thanks.
