Principal's Message

Greetings Falcons! I look forward to and anticipate a successful year partnering with the staff and community to ensure our students receive an authentic educational experience.  Galileo strives to provide an educational setting that not only supports our students academically but socially and emotionally.

We are proud to offer challenging educational programs, various extracurricular activities and multiple strands of learning.  Galileo is proud to be an International Baccalaureate School offering rigorous courses to provide our students with opportunities to pursue a more in-depth education that is recognized throughout the world.

Galileo’s history marks a history of excellence.  Galileo was honored to become a “National Blue Ribbon School” in 2014 and has also received multiple honors of distinction such as “Washington Posts America’s Top Challenging Schools” in 2017, U.S. News “Best High Schools” Bronze in 2017, The Daily Beast “Top High Schools” in 2014 and recipients of the “Wells Fargo Cup” in 2018.  This history of excellence will continue this school year.

In the words of Dalai Lama, “When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.”  At Galileo, we believe in building strong professional relationships with our students as we help guide and prepare them for their future success.  Our staff recognizes the role they play in helping our students reach their full potential, and they do not take the responsibility lightly. We truly believe all students can be successful, and this belief drives the work they do on a daily basis.


I am honored to lead such an outstanding school community and eagerly anticipate a rewarding and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or input at any time.  


Proud to be a Falcon!
