About Galloway Elementary
Bedford Galloway Elementary was established 1963 and named after a beloved former school board member who served in the school district for 10 years. After more than 40 years serving students and the community, the campus underwent renovations in 2006. Today Galloway Elementary is home to approximately 450 students and 65 staff members.
At Galloway Elementary we recognize the greatness in other cultures, ideas, beliefs, and we learn and lean on others for strength in times of need. As leaders in the lives of our students, we are committed to modeling empathy and compassion so they will learn from and lean on others as well. In doing so, we teach them that "greatness in not one great thing, but rather small things done in great ways."
Excellence begins at Galloway Elementary and we encourage all staff and students to exhibit Galloway greatness by Speaking great words. Doing great things.
