Youth Voice Survey!

Hello GAL Students!

Please take several minutes to complete the San Francisco Youth Voice Survey*.  This anonymous on-line survey gathers the experiences and priorities of SF high school students.

In the City: Your responses will influence how the city of San Francisco & SFUSD prioritize funding decisions and creates youth programs.

At GALILEO: Your answers will help Peer Resources design programs to advocate for positive change at our school. They will also guide Galileo towards building a positive school culture where all students are valued members of the Galileo community–that all students belong.

Our goal is for 1500 GALILEO Students to take this survey by Wednesday September 13th 

Your voice counts, but only if you share it…

Click the link below to access the survey.  Note that you will have to take the survey in one sitting–it cannot save your responses to finish them at another time. You should be able to complete the survey in 8-10 minutes.

Questions?  See Jackie in Room 102A.

San Francisco, CA – Common Sense, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology, has recognized Galileo Academy as a Common Sense Certified School: Digital Citizenship.


Galileo Academy has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to use the immense power of digital media to explore, create, connect, and learn, while limiting the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyberbullying.


“We applaud the faculty and staff of Galileo Academy for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students’ education,” said Jessica Lindl, Head of Common Sense Education. “Galileo Academy deserves high praise for giving its students the foundational skills they need to compete and succeed in the 21st-century workplace and participate ethically in society at large.”


Galileo Academy has been using Common Sense Education’s innovative and research-based digital citizenship resources, which were created in collaboration with Dr. Howard Gardner of the GoodPlay Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The resources teach students, educators, and parents tangible skills related to Internet safety, protecting online reputations and personal privacy, managing online relationships, and respecting creative copyright. The free resources are currently used in more than 90,000 classrooms nationwide.


We’re honored to be recognized as a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified School! By preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly, we are providing them unlimited opportunities to maximize and personalize their learning.
