THE ONE STARR IS FOR THE TEACHERS THAT ARE VERY KIND AND DEVOTED. THE LACK OF OTHER STARS IS FOR THE PRINCIPAL that should not even be in the school as he is completely dissociated from the issues that the school has and cares only about himself! I've posted a rating here back in September and it got deleted! THE SCHOOL HAS NO A/C and I dare to question it's heating, too. I was told that the only places in school that have a/c are THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE, NURSE'S OFFICE and ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES. Namely all folks BUT OUR KIDS!!! And yet we pay for all this! I pay 6500/year to have my kid sit in steamy classroom and the principal all comfy and happy! This is outrageous! We're all paying taxes but our principal only chooses accomodate himself! The cost per student in Garfield is $16,000/yr. I ask what do our kids get out of that????????????

I got 3 children going to this school and it has been the worst school for my children. they do not have after school for children unless they are in the waiting list. when finally they are allow to be after school is only 15 min. it is a jokes compare to other school. I rather teach my kid myself, their principal Pascussi needs to learn more about how to handle a school.

Hi these school can have some good teachers but if there is no motivation for the kids is pointless the years that my kid is was in that school I have not see the principal great every morning the kids I never saw a welcome meeting with the head of these school never a fun night for the kids an parents and some of the staff also know how to be rude like the same principal it selft I am glad that know he is in a better school and for the school I hope that they do better and for the principal I hope he gets some motivation to show his staff and to the future of our country those beautiful kids and stop just collecting a check well that is my opinion have a beautiful day......

I love this school because the teachers are very dedicated to the students, they keep an excellent track of your child development, and the communication channels are open both ways ( when the parents are interested.) The only problem I see is that the some parents do not want to get involve in the school activities, which is a real shame.

A serious security problem coupled with low student and staff moral due to a Principal that truly seems to share much of his zero enthusiasm. It is my opinion that the school's leader wants nothing more from Garfield's taxpayers and educational system then a paycheck and to go home at the end of his long, uneventful day while eagerly counting, along with me, his days to retirement and a fruitful life of fishing.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
