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”.
We accept incoming students for long and short term mobility and we are able to provide in and out-door activities. Depending on the class where the foreign student is inserted, they would be able to take part in some of our international courses:

Our school has been awarded with the eTwinning school label and is part of a European school network of more than 10 schools with whom we havebeen cooperating closely since 2017 activating eTwinning projects and Erasmus+ projects. We are always looking for other opportunities to extend our contacts because we believe that didactic innovation is developped through the europeanization of school curriculum.
Due to our Erasmus+ KA120 ACCREDITATION 2021-2027, we are organizing many different activities in partnership with other European schools.
