I am thankful to have my daughter comes to Garton! This is my daughter's 1st year as a 1st grader, had moved from South Carolina which she missed so much! But her teacher Mrs Hegwein is doing a great job! My daughter loves her and enjoys going to school everyday! Everyone in Garton Elementary is doing a good job working side by side to make this school a safe and a fun haven for learning! Appreciates the PTA Staffs who are doing their best for the sake of Garton students! More power to Garton Elementary who deserves to be rated as one of the great school of Iowa!
My son has had and is continuing to receive an excellent education with the Des Moines Public Schools. He was an Adams student that merged with Garton. He has had a very positive response to the school, the teachers and the students. His teachers have been excellent. He is excited about learning and enjoys going to school. Keep up the good work!
Garton School has one of the finest staffs anywhere. Every teacher my two children have had works hard to ensure that each student works to his or her fullest potential. Children who have any special needs will work with some of the best special education people available. Every student, no matter what their needs or abilities is treated fairly by all. I can not say enough good things about Garton School.
