I have been told by several people that Mr. Bates was a wonderful principal and I really wish I had the chance to meet him. I was really eager for my children to attend Garfield this year but I find myself starting to wonder why. I feel like my opinion doesn't matter. I often feel that the staff I have delt with has no compassion for single parents, maybe they don't know what it's like I don't know but compassion goes a long way...too bad that isn't something that can be taught, you either have it or you don't.

Garfield Elementary School is an awesome school! Great teachers and an incredible principal that goes above and beyond! The teachers are very friendly and always make it a point to say hello to us everyday. Mr. Bates is the best principal, he knows the kids by name and really gets involved in their day to day lives. He plays outside on the playground everyday with them no matter what the weather! Go gators!!!

We love Garfield school! I have 2 children attending Pre-K, & 1st Grade. Both teachers, Mrs. Gaglio & Mrs. Krantz are absolutely awesome teachers. They take the time & are great with communicating with parents. All the staff at Garfield makes us feel like family. I highly recommend this school to all.

Garfield is AWSOME! Our children love it there. Every teacher and the entire staff know our kids by name (even teachers they have never had). The Principle Mr. Bates is great he always takes the time to talk to us or our children. The office staff is friendly and helpful. Every teacher our children have had has been excellent.

Garfield staff is top notch! Every teacher we have had has gone above & beyond their job duties. The principal has to be the best in the district, very approacjable and you won't find him hiding in his office, he is very involved!

A very good school; my kids don't attend it anymore, because we moved, but they've always missed it,since they were always very happy there. The school has an excellent principal, and also teachers that really care for the students; 1st grade teacher, Miss Sertyn and also Mrs. Eagan, some of the best teachers I've ever met.

This is a wonderful school! I have been more than happy with everything about it. The teachers my kids have had are wonderful and caring. The principal, in my opinion, is the best principal I have ever come across. He's very involved and very friendly. My kids are very happy here. I couldn't have asked for a better school.

I have three children that attend Garfield.A first grader,a fourth grader and a fifth grader.I have had nothing but good expirences in my six years knowing this school.In six years I have not had one complaint.The teachers and all other staff are excellent and very caring.We actually moved to another school district two years ago and live right across the street from another elementary school.It would be very convienent to just let my children walk across the street everyday to get to school but I still drive them to Garfield because we love the school so much.We are losing a few great teachers this year due to cuts that couldn't be helped.Honesestly the level of parent involvement could be better but overall it's pretty good.I recomend this school all the time and the only few people I've talked to who didn't are people who have children with behavior problems.

The teachers do seem to be caring. However the principal always seems overwhelmed and angry about his work. I am a parent.
