Open Quote I was so excited my daughter got into this school in time for her to start 3rd grade! My daughter was wait-listed at #9 and they called me the last Thursday in July to tell me she got in! For 5 years I paid 6K of my 22K salary to send her to Catholic school because all of the schools in my neighborhood had test scores in the 20s, 30s, & 40 percentile ranking which meant not only were the kids not learning much but it means the schools are filled with behavioral issues I would not ever want my daughter to be exposed to! Since arriving at Galileo last fall, her math score went from a 56% to 89% & reading from 70% to 83% and I am sooo happy about that! It shouldn't be so hard to get a quality free education!!

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
