This is our first year at Garfield Elementary School. My child is a kindergartner. I have nothing but good things to say about this school. Mrs. McDonald is vested in the students learning and listens to all concerns I have about my child being on track. She is always ready with a plan if he's having trouble learning something one way to try a different technique. Principal Long is always around and ready to help at a moments notice. It shows in her actions that the students are her number one priority. The school highly encourages parent involvement. I am very happy with this school.

I have two childern currently at Garfield and one that will be able to go in a few years. I went there myself as a child and wouldn't feel comfortable sending my childern anywhere else. The teachers are great and I am able to be very involved in the schools activities, which is very important. I recommend this school to any parent that wants to drop their kids off every morning and know that they are being well taken care of and that they are not only learning, but they are also having fun.

Garfield School is a great school. I have two children that have been there since preschool. I would recomend this school to everyone. They are great and are there for the students and make the parents feel just as welcomed.

When I went to this school I had the most fun ever! I absolutely loved it, but then, of course I grew out of elementary. I even remember telling my mom that I wanted to get held back! I Rated this school very well!

I feel Garfield is a very family oriented school, and the teachers really care. Its a small school but has big ideas and values.
