Community Rating & Reviews

    Maple West is made up of dynamic enthusiastic and involved teachers constantly open to dialoguing with parents and engaging students. It's more like a strong loving community than a school.

    Mr. Galluzzo sets the bar by having a dedicated staff and expects only the best from the teachers staff and students. Mrs. Baney is the most wonderful 3rd grade teacher and I hope my younger daughter has her when she gets to third grade! I love Maple West the parents are involved and the teachers wreally care.

    My son has attending Maple West for the last 2 years. It has been such a positive experience for him. I would like to especially recognize Mrs. Paula McGirr. She had worked one on one with my son and created an environment which he loved to go to everyday. We are now moving into another school district and I will certainly miss not only the school but the wonderful faculty that I have come to know and love.
