    "All of my instructors/teachers work very hard to assist students in being successful. The school has worked very hard to implement a pilot program that includes chrome books for learning and interacting. This is the first in our city of any school to participate in this."

    "While not the worst group of teachers in Danville, Galileo still has quite a few kinks in the teaching department it must work out if it wants to be taken seriously. From teachers being overbearing and disrespectful to their student's beliefs and family members, to teachers that talk very awfully about other students, this school has quite a few different flavors of awful to pick from. There are a few good teachers though who do try and seek good things for their students, the problem is those kinds of teachers are few and far between."

    "Man oh man did I really not like Galileo; one of the teachers said that "No amount of prayer would every help us students from passing our tests!" A bunch of childish teachers, and students...some of the classes were so flat-lined, boring, and repetitive that I almost failed a few, but managed to really devote a lot of time to them. Galileo does try with it's education, it just does not try hard enough to get anything but mediocre from me."
