About us

Our school is dedicated to the famous Italian scientist Galileo Galilei, the father of observational astronomy, modern-era classical physics, the scientific method, and modern science.

The State Scientific High School "Galileo Galilei" was originally established as a branch of the State Scientific High School "Messedaglia", also located in Verona, Italy. In 1969, it became independent as the second Scientific High School in the city, offering four sections.

In the following years, the growth of the student population necessitated the expansion of the building. This expansion included the construction of a new wing and the opening of a side access road to ensure the safety of students entering and exiting.

Starting from 1987, there was a need for the use of a separate location, which, from 1992 to 1999, was situated on Via Carlo Alberto, in the former premises of the similarly named middle school. After two years of transition, during which some classes from the high school were accommodated in the facilities of the "Busti" elementary school and the "Mazza" middle schools, from the 2002-2003 school year, following the completion of renovation works, the branch of Galilei High School returned to the Via Carlo Alberto building.

From the 2010-2011 school year onwards, following the introduction of the ministerial reorganization of school cycles, Galilei High School offered programmes in the traditional course, in applied sciences, and in modern languages. Additionally, from the 2014-2015 school year, it became the first in the Veneto region to offer a sports-oriented programme.
