Galileo has been a blessing to our family as both of our sons attend this amazing school. Our experience has been that the faculty is consistently positive and focused on the individual child. You can truly see that each and every staff member cares for each other as well, setting the example for our kids. Additionally, the non-traditional education model challenges my children without frustrating them. This results in the attitude of wanting to go to school. When kids want to be there they are engaged- learning is fun and holds meaning. Our children thrive here.

Galileo is the best school we could have chosen for our children.  They are challenged academically and rewarded for being good citizens and showing good character. Teachers, staff and administration all encourage students to communicate their observations and concerns. Consequently, our children feel cared for and safe at school.

- The Giddings Family

We love how common sense and research-supported ideals are embraced, such as limited homework, daily recess, and a focus on character-building and emotional health.

I always heard the saying “it takes a village to raise a child”, but I don’t think I completely understood the meaning of that statement until our twins became Galileo students. The Galileo staff and student families are all part of our “village”! The way in which they educate our children makes learning engaging & fun. Regardless of the staff member my children encounter it is clear that good behavior, positive role modeling & kindness are equally as important as their grades. They are clearly striving to create great social citizens & not just straight “A” students! The support we have been provided as a family throughout our 4 years at Galileo has been incredible – teacher communication, volunteer opportunities and an “always open door policy” make us feel blessed to be part of this beautiful Galileo family!
