I went here for 2 yrs but they were some of the greatest yrs I've ever lived. All the peers are great, and so are the teachers.

This is my 3rd year as a student in Galileo. Overall, the school isn't bad, but I'm going to go to the good stuff first then the bad stuff. 1. There's not as much bullying anymore 2. The 8th grade teachers are honestly pretty good and they do teach. 3. They have programs such as avid, advanced math and math/ literacy tutorial 4. They have sports like volleyball, basketball, track, soccer. Now onto the bad things 1. It's not as diverse there are a lot of white and Hispanic students 2. You have to have backpacks and phones in lockers 3. You have to carry a big binder 4.
