According to the GradeEdge report - Galileo High scores a 5.5 out of 10 on Overall School Quality. Galileo scores much higher than other SF public high schools on academic testing. Unfortunately, they don't offer as many high level math courses as other schools and not enough students are taking AP courses. To learn more about their academics and how they compare on language and music, student support, college advisors, etc, I'd suggest looking at the report created from district data on

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.

I graduated from Gal a few years back... I don't regret going here at all. Made some great friends and everyone just feels like family. Teachers here are amazing as well. Our sport teams kick total BUTT! Loved getting out at 1 on Tuesdays.. Off-campus lunch and we're located right by the pier... What more could you ask for??? GHOUUUUUUUUUSE!

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!
