We love Garfield! I now have 2 kids at Garfield and we love the small, tight-knit community there. Teachers seem committed to providing a fun, safe learning environment for all kids. Our principal is EXCELLENT! She is a wonderful leader, a thoughtful communicator to parents and kids alike, and is invested in making Garfield the best school it can be. The staff's enthusiasm for the school and kids is infectious, and as a parent it encourages me to be an active participant in helping Garfield excel. The early start time is a great fit for working parents, and they provide after-school programs on site. We are so glad this little gem is in our neighborhood!
