About Galtier Community School

Front of Galtier Community School
  • Through our multi-grade learning studios, students can be grouped by skill level rather than grade level − offering a unique classroom environment for collaboration. Our large media center, the Exploratorium, provides a hands-on approach to technology and creativity. This unique, recently renovated school environment helps shape personalized learning, with teachers who strive to provide instruction tailored for each student. A deeply dedicated staff and strong sense of community help our students stay engaged, all within a warm, caring atmosphere.
