The Galilei Lyceum is a public secondary school in Perugia, a historic city,  founded by the Etruscans. It’s in the centre of Italy close to Florence and Rome. It’s full of history and its community is enriched by the University and the University for Foreigners.  

Our school has got 55 classes and almost  1400 students from 14 to 19 years old and a staff of 118 teachers.  It is situated in a luxurious park, near the  historical centre. So, despite its "green location", it's very close to the city centre. Thus our students have diferent opportunities to learn outside the classroom, organizing activities with the National Gallery of Umbria, the Archaeological Museum, the Historical Archive and the Old City Library. 


the park around the school

The school has different laboratories of Chemistry, Physics, Arts, ICT and the new CODING LAB. Each of our classrooms has multimedia overhead projectors and interactive  whiteboards.     

The school has a very large library that has over 5000 books. It is near the  historical centre and its very important institutions such as the National Gallery,  the Augusta Library and a Civic Centre for the Science (POST). This is the  reason why some of our activities are outside the classroom. 

Our curriculum The main subjects we teach are Maths, Natural Sciences and Physics, along with  the Arts, Latin, Literature, Philosophy and History. Our Foreign Language programmes  are very important: fourteen of our classes have  a Cambridge curriculum and students do British IGCSEs in History, English as  Second Language and  Maths. Five classes have a French-Italian  curriculum, called EsaBac, and those  students get the French Baccalauréat as  well as the Italian diploma. The new course  we’ve started in 2019 is about Coding Language. Six classes attend this course where students learn how to use Python, Flowgorithm, Geogebra, Editing html (Brackets) and working with Makey Makey, Dobot Magician, Makeblock, and Arduino CTC101.

Our curriculum focuses basically on academic skills, but it provides plenty of  other activities. Moreover, it is different from most other European systems, because it gives the opportunity to join just one class during the stay. It depends on the age* and the needs of the in-coming students.  In this class the students will stay all morning taking all the lessons Italian  classmates do.  In the lines below you can read a list of some of the courses taught in the  EsaBac and Cambridge Classes.

Curriculum for foreign students 

The Lyceum is an inclusive school for non-native speakers and open to the internationalisation programs. An increasing number of students from all over the world are hosted by us for short or long term mobility and we have hosted students from US, Canada, England, French, India providing for each of them a personal training program. We believe that our  students must become citizens of Europe and of the “Earth”.
