Galileo has been a life changing decision for our children since we decided to enroll. We came to this school because of the detailed and variety learning experience Galileo offers. Not only do they meet our children’s individual educational needs, they exceed their goals. The teachers and staff are so friendly and know everyone by name. I have kids that look forward going to school now!

- The Dykes Family

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.

- The Vuong Family

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.
