Galileo Magnet High School has been a part of Danville's Public School District since 2002 and offers a curriculum that provides challenges and opportunities to the students that one may not otherwise find in public education. The students, faculty, and administration create a unique educational experience that is found nowhere else. The school’s program allows for expression of self, critical thinking, and personal development that can assist students when they enter the world after high school. Galileo's technologically-focused study programs are on the cutting edge of the constantly evolving technological world of the 21st century.
