Our District
Galway School District is a rural school district that encompasses 100 square miles. All or part of eight townships are included in the district. The K-12 enrollment is approximately 800 students housed in a single building that consists of two distinct areas:
  • Joseph Henry Elementary School (K-6)
  • Galway Junior/Senior High School (7-12)

Uniquely Galway
Class sizes in Galway are small with the average being around 20 students. The District has a commitment to include special education students in mainstream classes and has a comprehensive and state-recognized program for Academic Intervention Service offering a quick response to intervention.

While it's a relatively small rural school with limited resources, Galway School offers extensive opportunities for students in the areas of business, technology, Advanced Placement Courses and University in the High School classes. Galway has a sophisticated computer network and participates in the Saratoga Adirondack Network that provides distance-learning opportunities for enrichment.

A strong relationship between the school district and community has proved to be a valuable partnership. The community takes full advantage of the school facilities and uses them extensively for their activities. The District welcomes parents and community members as partners in our educational efforts and is home to approximately 110 professional and dedicated staff who provide a comprehensive educational program for our students. Our staff recognize the efforts of the community which strongly support our school program and they also give back to the community by supporting all local initiatives.
