Mr. GalliganOffice of the Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Families,

I am honored to be the Principal of Warwick Neck Elementary School. I look forward to meeting and working with everyone, while becoming better acquainted with our wonderful community!

Just before my recent role as the Interim Principal at Norwood Elementary School in Warwick, I returned to Rhode Island after having served as an administrator and principal in both the public and private schools of Boston. I received my Masters in School Leadership and Administration from Harvard University, Masters in Secondary Education from Providence College, and Bachelors Degree from Assumption University. Prior to becoming a principal, I taught middle school social studies for 10 years in Rhode Island. My family attended Warwick Public Schools and my parents got married shortly after they both graduated from Pilgrim High School. It is an honor and privilege to return home.

I extend my special thanks to the Parent-Teacher Association of Warwick Neck for providing the fun folders and helpful agendas that support proper student organizational skills – and for the many wonderful events they provide to our families throughout the year. I encourage all parents and guardians to consider joining this organization to help improve the student life and experience at Warwick Neck Elementary School.

As we journey through the coming months together, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to an exciting and rewarding year ahead!


Mr. Frank Galligan, Ed.M.

Principal of Warwick Neck School
