This is my son's third year at Galileo, and he absolutely loves it! He has been blessed with amazing teachers and support staff who create a fun, safe, and effective learning environment. He has developed a love for school, reading, math, and history. The other families also add value because you can feel a true sense of commitment to families supporting their students and their friends. That commitment to excellence, support, and inclusion can be seen in all areas and levels of the school and administration.

We have a child going into 7th grade at Galileo this coming school year. Last year, she really blossomed personally and academically because of the individualized attention she receives at this school. The teachers and administration take the time to get to know each child and to encourage them to be their best self.
The unique style of learning encourages creativity and peaks interest. She comes home excited to do her occasional projects (and we are SO thankful for the minimal homework). Workload from school and homework used to be a struggle in our house, but that struggle is gone! She strives to get good grades and she takes pride in her work now. What a relief! We are so happy that she has had the opportunity to attend Galileo. We highly recommend this school.
I wanted to love this school. They promised to make personalized plans for each child. In practice though, every child is taught the same, mostly through computerized programs. The work ethic among the students is poor. They receive minimal homework but can't be bothered to turn it in because they know they will never get a grade below 40%. I have witnessed them being disrespectful to teachers with little to no consequences. The lack of empathy is alarming, especially since it's supposed to be one of Galileo's core values. Most seem to do well on standardized tests. But, from what I've seen, this has more to do with worried parents spending hours every night going over math and language arts skills with their children, or because they send their children to private tutors. That being said, there are some wonderful teachers and support staff in Galileo. It's a shame they are not given the opportunity to use their skills.
