All the staff at Garfield are strong and caring.Mrs Matteecheck is my granddaughter 1st grade teacher. She works very well with the first graders. Mrs Mattecheck has taught Aubryana to read very well. SHES VERY PATIENT WITH HER STUDENTS. I feel they have a great principal in place to lead the school. Let me not forget there nurse Diana who is also very caring and great with the kids. I want to thank all the staff at Garfield for all they do. Im looking forward to Aubryana's next 4yrs at your school.

Garfield Elementary is wonderful. They have monthly lifeskills that they expect the children to incorporate in their daily lives. Parents are involved with the school and volunteer for lots of activities. The principal is wonderful and goes above and beyond. They also have a lot of PTA and Dad's Club sponsored activities that are fun for the kids, either free or at reasonable prices so all can attend!

Having moved here in the middle of the school year, we have been impressed with the way our child was welcomed into the school by peers and teachers. Our daughter's teacher recognized strengths & needs right away & the following day, she was in the TAG program, without missing a beat. We are also impressed with the teachers as disciplinarians -- children won't get by with much here; they are expected to be on their best behavior.
