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.

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
