The principal of Garfield, Mr. Harries, is a GREAT and involved administrator. District and state budget protocols tend to un-ameliorate many urban school populations, seemingly by a war of financial attrition. Nevertheless, Mr. Harries still finds ways to help teachers teach , through compassionate behavior management by finding a way to handle onsite students, who display offsite problems, by way of insightful strategies, within the building. He seems to only suspend the most needed cases. This principal reflects the image of what the school s student population needs to see, especially re those middle school age boys. I would hope that the district will one day have this brilliant principal involved with that niche of student. The Dist 89 community urgently needs Mr. Harries as a principal, especially for upper grade elementary. Finally, too many parents are NOT stepping up to be involved with their own kid s success. Put your opinions in writing. Come out to city/school board meetings. Register to, & VOTE! Non parents need to get involved too. The education level of a community, and your neighbor s kids, GREATLY affects the potential economy of its citizens.

I attended garfield from K-8th grade and i must say that it is a wondeful school it is full of well detemined teachers that sacrifice to make sure the education is number 1 for the students but you cant always blame the teacher , sometimes its also the student. If the student is not willing to learn the that can be effective. but from my own experience i must say i that the speed process takes to long some of the thing i was supposed to lean there i dint learn til i got into highschool so i think that they should push much harder on education and speed if they're really striving for success

My child attends Garfield School and she is in 4th grade. She reads below average, at what I believe is a second grade level. But yet they don't think she qualifies to go to another school that is not on academic probation.

My child.. has done poorly at Garfield school. 50% is the child and 50% is the teacher. As a parent I am concerned when the teacher is passing my child on to the next grade and the kid can't read or do math at the grade level that they are were presently in..
