The goal of our Spanish Academy to teach a second language to students beginning in Kindergarten to help them become fluent by the time they exit the program in 6th grade. Knowing Spanish IS NOT a requirement to enter the program. It is a rigous program in that the students are required to demonstrate proficiency in two languages. Our Kindergarten classes are ALL DAY classes. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at (760) 241-1753.
Calling All Gifted and Talented Students!!

Each week, you meet with highly qualified teachers who provide weekly lessons, materials and resources you need to help you to be successful in teaching your child. Galileo also has a 2-day Hybrid program where your child can attend school for two days to get extra support from the teachers in small group settings and partake in the various elective classes offered.

School Accountability Report Card
The governing boards of California school
districts must annually prepare and issue the School Accountability Report Card
(SARC) for each elementary and secondary school under their jurisdiction. SARC
reports are required by law to provide parents, the local business community,
and interested parties with important information about a school's progress in
16 key areas. These Conditions cover such topics as progress toward meeting
goals in reading, writing, and arithmetic progress toward reducing dropout
rates and the amount of funds spent on salaries and other services. The
School Accountability Report Card was established by Proposition 98,
an initiative passed by California voters in November of 1988.
The School Accountability Report Card is in Adobe Acrobat's Portable Document Format.
If you do not have an
Adobe Acrobat Reader
installed on you computer, you can download and install a copy, without charge,
