I feel the educators go above and beyond for their students. Keep up the good work Garrison. And Ms. Finley is an exceptional principal. Maria and Yvonne are great with the kids as well. They need a friendlier front desk person as well as a more professional school nurse. Other than that everything is great!

My children are both in the Autism preschool at Garrison Elementary. This program is one of the best in the state and is frequently used as a model for other schools trying to build their own programs. The population of the campus approximately 50% general education student and 50% students with Autism. Our experiences with the teachers and program manager have all been positive so far. No major issues during our IEP meetings. I can email the teachers and program manager and usually will receive an answer or get a response before or by the end of the school day. Dealing with the office staff can sometimes be frustrating but for the most part they mean well. Overall a great school, especially if you have a child in the autism program.

This is a very unsatifactory school. I had a child here form K-2nd grade. They do not have adequate programs for gifted students, but programs for others. I have a 4 yr.old starting this fall and we refuse to send him here. We wold continue todrive across town everyday to get him to a higher performing school.

Garrison is lacking in quality of academic programs. The special ed programs are great but if you have a smart child, take them elsewhere.

Garrison is not a good school. The do the same field trips every year. They took 6 grade camp away. Which the Salida school district is still doing. I took my son out just so he can experience 6th grade camp.
