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.
