Great Principal, Great Teachers. We love Garrison. We went away and tried to get back in but couldn't :( The only bad thing I can say is the security of the school. No fences and people are just walking around campus at anytime. Other than... more

About this school

Garrison is a small school, with approximately 390 regular education students, 22 K-5 special education students, and 30 special education speech and language pre-school students. Although the school is aging, it is maintained beautifully with grassy malls and beautiful trees. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the entire campus is charming and very welcoming. Because of our small size, we are able to maintain a percussion lab, orchestra and band lab, art room, full-sized speech therapy room, as well as two separate rooms for the after-school program. The MPR is large and features a full-size stage for performances. The school offers specialized programs for qualified students such as The Listening Program, Math Solutions, and Lindamood Bell reading intervention. Each program is specifically designed for students who have been through the Student Study Team process. Garrison is the home of the Oceanside Unified District-wide Spelling Bee. Each year we host participating Oceanside elementary schools in a drama-filled competition that accents academic achievement. We are proud and delighted to have a dynamic and energetic parent/teacher team (PTO) that works very hard to provide excellent fundraisers and "fun"raisers. The culminating event of the year is the annual Pageant of the Masters Show, featuring music, dancing, visual art and drama sketches that students have worked on throughout the year. It's a "don't miss" event!
