Choosing between Galileo and Murray


MoniG1 August 13, 2012

My son attends Galileo and has recently been accepted to Murray. Both schools has great school ratings of 8. Murray is closer to home but has a class size of 32 and Galileo is cross town with a class size of 22 for 2nd grade. We are on a tight buget and need to cut expenses as the need to be closer to home. Not sure its worth it. Any opinions is appreciated.

Hi MoniG1,

What made you apply to the other school? Were you looking at curriculum, or special programs?

How are the upper grades at both schools?

Can your son stay with this group of kids for middle school as well?

Hi MoniG1,
Did you decide on a school .Just interested how it turned out and what you decided. I, too live near Murray, but I work near Galileo. My daughter will be in K next year. Any feedback on both schools will be great.
