GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP PUBLIC SCHOOLS

The Galloway Township community covers over 90 square miles in Atlantic County, New Jersey. Our public school enrollment is approximately 3270 students in grades Pre-K to 8 served by approximately 550 faculty, administrators, and support staff.
Galloway Township Public Schools ... "a diverse and progressive district, unifies educators, families, and community to provide a safe, challenging learning environment for all children to succeed in meeting the Common Core I Core Curriculum Content Standards and develop as lifelong learners and productive citizens." This mission statement, which was originally developed in 2001, provides the overall direction for our work with students, parents/guardians, and the community.

To help further define our mission, the Board of Education adopted the following core values in August 2010: Communication, Diversity, Excellence, Hard Work, Integrity, and Respect. As our district strives to meet the challenges of preparing learners in the 21st century, these core values guide our decision making, planning, and daily work.

Our schools, staff, and programs address the needs of the whole child to help ensure students' academic, social/emotional, physical, and behavioral growth and success. Our instructional programs are research-based, and our teachers are supported through job embedded professional learning opportunities. Galloway students achieve well and compete at high levels in academics, athletics, and the arts. Our entire school family stands committed to living the district motto "where children and learning come first."
