Galileo Elementary Magnet School

Magnet schools are public schools that offer a particular program such as Foreign Language or the Arts and it is open to all students not in a particular boundary. Admittance is competitive and may be done by lottery or a specific application process (interview, audition, etc.).

You can compare both Galileo and the Chicago International Schools state test results to determine how each did on the tests.
[Note- if there's an error on their web page, you will have to manually select the schools to see the results.]
You can click on "All Tests" or just the "ISAT" and you can see that Galileo did much better than the charter schools. Keep in mind that Galileo is one school and Chicago International is a conglomerate of nine schools. 

Comparing the results between the school, district and the state, the school is above both. That's great.
Looking at just the school results on the ISAT, they did substantially well until you look closely at the third graders for reading for 2008. They seemed to have dropped and were on academic warning. Scrolling down to fifth grade writing, in 2008, they didn't do well at all. 60 percent did below state standards.
