Garrison Forest School is a very special place. The campus is simply beautiful. The teachers and the staff are warm and it is evident how much they care about their students and love what they are doing. My daughter started at Garrison in first grade and will graduate next year. I feel that she is not only well prepared for college academically but emotionally as well. We could not have chosen a better place to educate our daughter.

I have two daughters at Garrison Forest (we have experienced every Division from Preschool to Upper School), and they (and we) love it! There could not be a more warm, invested, impressive group of faculty -- each teacher seems not only to be passionate about her or his subject, but also cares deeply about the craft of teaching. They innovate, prompt students to think deeply and creatively, and flex to challenge or support individual students in very thoughtful ways. At one point we considered moving to another school (the commute for us is really long), but it became clear when we "shopped around" that no one else seemed to quite as committed to helping each girl go as far as she could go. And the campus --let's face it, it's gorgeous! (There has been a recent change in leadership at the top, with a long time male Head, who had done an excellent job of leading the school retiring, but the new, young female Head seems to be just right for the school as well: warm, good listener, and clearly very smart!).

My daughter is a sophomore and this is her second year. Garrison prepares her students to not only excel academically but to also endeavor to be honorable citizens. I've watch my sometimes shy daughter blossom into a confident yound woman who is inpsired by purpose. Thank you.

My daughter attended Garrison Forest School for girls from 6-12th grade. This school will provide your girls with the foundation and discipline that they need for college. They have outstanding teachers, counselors and administrators.

I have been at this school since the second grade and it is amazing. What my parents love most about it, is that everyone gets a chance to be a leader.

My daughter has been at GFS for 10 years. It is a small all-girls school. It offers tremendous cultural growth because it is also a boarding school. Class size is very small. Lots of individual attention.

This is the best school I can think of. The teachers are great. The students have the best manners and not because of their parents but because of the teachers.

Garrison is an amazing school. I have been enrolled here for nine years and I still love it. The teachers are amazing and will do anything in their power to get you on the so called ' road to success'. The classes can be demanding but in a good way. The extracurricular activites are amazing along with all of the coaches and sports teams and so on. I love this school and will always forever!
