Another unspeakable matriarchy, where neutered males are "led" by a deluded female principal and vice-principal who have talked themselves into believing that their students are respectful and receptive to learning. Here, sensitivity about race and self-esteem are more important to administration than discipline or academic success. This school is a cesspool, and the API score scream it. Those who need to see what is wrong in education only need to visit this "school".
The school is not organized as my son's favorite school. My son hates your school!
What a mess! The Principal and vice principal only care about themselves. I was appalled at the way they treated teachers. It was obvious they only care about certain races of people.
I have seen in our school that there have been problems, but im sure our new principal will change our problems. We the students feel very proud and with the staff, we are a family i dont know if thats going to change this 2010 2011 year. on the other hand i hope it wont, we grew up with these theachers for eight years there like family. Now the school is averge lets make it a exellent. Together we can make it the best school in the U.S.. Parents have to step up but lets not over due it, it can be weird. It is tought with the econemy but we can make alot easier. I dont know how but were smart your smart together we'll figur something out. Including the state, it will be hard but we will make it with blood sweet and tears. Garfield will make it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Teacher's staff development has created a systematic program in which all students read and write at their level until they are at grade level and beyond.
