I am a student at Galileo! This high school is super amazing! It has a well caring teachers and they will help you in whatever the student struggles, there's many clubs to be part of, and even better if the student is "newcomer" it has their own club so the newcomers can be help in what they sturggle. There's many nice people around this high school, and you will make friends by fast . There's many programs for those students who doesn't feel appreciate for their appearances or considererantions of sexuality. Lost of joyful moments! I don't regret on coming here. Because there's always someone to help you ! Even if u want to Changelle yourselves.

Our son is a 10th grade student this year. He is having a very positive experience in academics, sports, and in clubs. The school has provided him with teachers and coaches who care and support their students. The current Principal has been very hands on and we hope after her retirement there will be an equally wonderful leader there. Go Galileo Lions!

Galileo students and faculty have year in and year out performed at the highest levels of excellence in science and math while modeling the best in multiracial, intercultural relations, being a role model for all of the other fine high schools in the entire San Francisco Bay Region. Galileo makes it all the more tangible that a future Nobel Prize or cure for cancer or AIDS will come from bright individuals working in close collaboration with many diverse partners serving the greater good of all humanity.

Galileo is a place where people are very kind to each other and do the best they can for each other. Students help each other and their teachers. Teachers, even with not the smallest classes, make each student feel like an individual within their class. The focus is on each individual student learning as much as they can within an environment where many extracurricular activities are available. The school has a diverse population with students from many countries who each year give an example of music or dance from their culture at an assembly. In addition to all this, the school is a gorgeous 1920's building that has just been upgraded. It is in a tourist area in San Francisco, and many of the rooms have views of the bay or other SF sites. All in all a wonderful place to work with a very supportive administration.

It was my high school for my first two years. I remember the elective classes were very artistic and the general classes quite progressive. I learned how to balance a check book and write a check, also to work on a computer, but it was mainly a new kind of typewritter for us. If we could get it, we would get it. We had incredible school spirit and football games were always full capcity with teachers as well as the kids. It was cultural, being that it was right above the Fishermans Wharf it was historical too. I fully enjoyed my time there.

The commitment and care teachers, staffing and counselors take with students is remarkable, helping even the most troubled students see their potential and bringing change and growth on an individual basis and as a community. The students drive for self understanding and development is remarkable, spurring continuous learning inside and outside of the classroom. Not only are they leaders of themselves but also of one another, caring for and supporting the community and each other.

The administration is the best anywhere.The programs are well thought of and are all result oriented. The PSTA is a great group of energenic and caring parents who wants nothing less than excellent for the school and their kids. Just being in the school you can feel the energy of those young bright students thriving. And the best part is...they really enjoy being there. There is a great sense of community in the mix.

The staff membrs are the most amazing people you will ever meet in your life. No matter where you are in life, there is always a teacher or a counselor who you can relate to and talk to. If you need to vent, Galileo has the best Wellness Center in the city, if I do say so myself. The atmosphere is not super cut throat competitive but it definitely challenge a student intellectually, making it the ideal place for adolescent scholarly (and personal) achievement. The college and career staff, as well as the counseling staff is extremely dedicated to serving their students. They will make sure you know about scholarship opportunities and they will encourage you to apply to many different colleges across the country. If you need guidance, may it be academic or persona, they are there for you. Galileo also has five different computer labs and a great biotechnology lab. The environmental science pathway (Project Wise) takes weekly field trips to the Crissy Field center so students can actually experience the environment, not just see it in a textbook. The health academy pathway offers EMT certification for their two year graduates. We also have an AOIT program for those interested in communiation as wll as many other targeted pathays. Galileo is an amazing school and it is full of resouces and supportive people.

I love Galileo High because everybody here is so friendly and accepting! Galileo has lots of spirit. One time, Galileo invited SAC members from other schools in the SFUSD, and they stayed for the welcome assembly and leadership workshop. They all said that Galileo was so cool and welcoming to do special assemblies like that one. Galileo also has cool rallies like Song and Yell, talent shows, and cultural assemblies. At Galileo, I feel safe. We are not that big compared to other public schools in the city, which is why I feel like everybody is connected. You don't have to be rich, pretty, a certain race, or anything like that in order to be successful at Galileo. Everybody has a chance when getting involved with the school. Everyone supports one another. The teachers are also great. All the teachers that I've had genuinely want to improve our education. We have really cool and clean purple lockers, and a brand new astro-turf football field! Also, our sports teams are very open to people. We may not have the biggest or best sports teams in San Francisco, but we definitely have the most bonding, support, and love. We have different pathways that expand students area of interest, like the biotechnology pathway, environmental science pathway, EMT, academy of tourism and hospitality, digital arts, computer science, etc. Galileo offers so many opportunities through clubs, student government, education, and after school programs. We have really nice computer labs with brand new macs! Bottom line, Galileo is the best.

As a former student who attended Galileo through its transitioning years, I have experienced the terrible aspects of the urban school back in its more notorious period, as well as the motivation and help the school provided during my junior and senior year. That goes to say, I definitely learned a lot from my experiences outside of academics, and how to be more independent coming to college. One thing the school lacked though, was the advisory on pursuing professional careers. Despite all the AP classes I took, I was in no way prepared nor even aware of professional fields. Then again, I graduated the year Galileo became recognized as a distinguished school, so I expect much to have changed since then.

As an educator in the school district and a parent, I can honestly say, Galileo is nothing but up-and-coming. Not only are there endless programs, extracurricular activities and outstanding staff to encourage students to grow academically and personally, but there is a supportive Wellness Center, a school nurse and most of all, principals who care about students. Test scores keep going up, construction of the campus will only make it more beautiful and accessible for all and the safe environment surrounding students and staff makes this school a top school in San Francisco that should at least be visited, especially by those who have a sullied image of Galileo.

Galileo is a great school. Much better than back in the day. I suggest to all the parents to stay involved in your childs education. Talk to their teachers, councilors and become a member of the PTSA. They should be focusing on everyone and providing the same opportunities to all students. No one should have to suffer.

This is my second year at Galileo, and I am enjoying it. They have many wonderful teachers,staff, and a great principal. I see that some people seem to judge Galileo by their past, but what really matters is what we're building up to now. Now, Galileo has rising test scores, Media Arts classes, a variety of science classes, and many fun programs. It's a shame how some people don't realize that and miss the opportunity to come to Galileo

Great school. I would like to see a drama class and also a talent show, since similar schools have these things. I'm sure many students have talent and really want to show it.

The three low ratings for Galileo come from students who graduated years back. In Fall 2002 Galileo got a new principal, Mrs. Margaret Chiu. Since that time Galileo has changed for the better. We have academies in health science, information technology and environmental science, with business partners who help our students get professional training (and summer jobs). Our test scores have gone up a lot. We now have weekly in-house TV broadcasts, with TV commercials created by students in Media Arts classes. Almost all of our teachers actively maintain weblog pages at www.galileoweb.org, where student assignments are posted. Galileo students are working on projects with Bay Area Video Coalition, National Writers Project, 928 Valencia, IBM, the Presidio Trust, California Pacific Medical Center and many others. If you graduated some years ago and you're not familiar with what's going on now, please don't judge us from the past.

I've been a student at Galileo for 2 years so far, and it's been a total blast. I absolutely love the teachers and I can't help but say so much good things about them. The teachers really make you feel as if you can ask them anything and most of them are there for you when you need extra help, which is something I always take advantage of. Also the teachers are just cool in general. I mean, some of the teachers would play mah joh will you after school, and they can actually wipe you clean! The classes are also interesting, especially the science classes. They don't name Galileo Academy of Science and Technology for nothing. Another plus is the social life at the school. Truthfully, the clubs don't do much, but the pep rallies and multi-cultural assemblies are pretty cool. Galileo really isn't as bad as people think.

Galileo High, as I know it, is a good school for all of your children. Their academic programs are as helpful as any school's and probably better. My daughter goes to Galileo and I saw her progress on her education. I also saw how the school helps her. She said that her teachers are realy nice and very hard working. Galileo has programs that involve parents, such as Open house night, PTAs and many more.

I went to Galileo in the late 90's and found a precarious mixture of wonderful educators and teachers who had been completely broken by their rambunctious students and simply waiting for retirement. The principal and his staff where indifferent when not completely rude and security staff often hung around outside smoking with students during class. Add that to the out of date books we couldn't remove from the class room and the dirty, broken down facilities and you don't come up with a successful place of education.

My experience with Galileo Academy of Science and Technology since August 2003 has only been positive. The principal consistently articulates high standards for the students and the school. Galileo has one Wellness Counselor who made the difference in my son entering the school for the first day of his freshman year when he wanted to attend a different school. Now all that he has expressed to me has been positive. I look forward to becoming involved with the Parents Group to work to continually improve Galileo.

Galileo High School is everything wrong with California urban public high schools. Unmotivated students, uncaring counselors, incompetent teachers, and of course, the lack of updated textbooks. All but a few of the good teachers I've come across in this school have left for other schools since I graduated, and I can't blame them at all. I wouldn't want to teach a roomful of students who just don't care, either.

Galileo is a great school. You have fun and get your work done at the same time. The teachers make it fun to work. You meet people that are into all kinds of things. The teachers and student are friendly and helpful. I think no matter what you are into Galileo is the school for you.
