Our Galileoweb.org 2017 Website Launch!

Welcome Galileo Lions!

We have finally launched our new website on galileoweb.org! Feel free to browse the new site and its layout.

Most files, documents, and posts are in the same location. If you are having trouble locating something on the website, feel free to send an email to galileoweb@sfusd.edu and we will try to locate it and let you know.

We have a couple of new features as well:

-Each department has its own sub-site, along with a description about the department, information from the department, and resources available as well.

-Calendars are located on the specific page of that calendar (ie: College & Career Calendar is on the main College & Career page). Calendars are also located on the “All Galileo Calendars” page.

-The ASB sub-site has the option to purchase Galileo merchandise! Stock up on Galileo items!
