Garrett has no communication between the facility and parents. They also are under staffed which makes the attention of the students horrible. The pre-k system there is a joke. My 4 year old doesn't get any attention. When and if she gets into trouble the teacher can not give us a straight answer on why she got into trouble. Something needs to be done because this is the second year we have been there and they have promised all these changes and absolutely NOTHING has changed besides the principal. We are looking into private schools for our girls.
I am a former student of this school. I attended J.R. Lamar school until this building was constructed, because of all the "baby boomers". I was in the first fourth grade here. It was a great new school and I hope it continues to have high achievement by staff and students.
Garrett as a whole is a wonderful school. Most teachers have been here for a long time and their dedication really shows. But, since Ms. Baker has taken over the atmosphere has gone down hill. Teacher who had been there for 15 plus years are leaving and parents who had had students there before are mon=ving their siblings. The reason is the unpredicability of the principal. The positive climate has changed and not for the better.
