Garfield Elementary School 1

The office staff is rude and plays favorites. If you have a question they their answer is always, "I don't know", or "You have to ask someone else because I'm typing right now". There are other staff members who play favorites as well, such a certain paraprofessionals or security. If they don't feel you belong, then they treat you like it. They only call the parents if your kids are sick if they feel like it. One kid needed stitches and the parent didn't find out until she picked him up, which was 3 hours later. I removed my kids from this school because that behavior is very unprofessional and I don't want my kids to be treated badly because they don't like the parents.

Even though the current principal is doing an excellent job, the district permitted open enrollment for the 2011/2012 school year which has caused extensive overcrowding with up to 38 students in a class. I am deeply concerned about the children s education in a facility that doesn t have the staff or space to adequately meet the needs of the now 600 students. Unfortunately, it appears that Garfield will go down the tubes like most other schools in the Cleveland School District. It's really sad because the school had so much promise, I can guarantee the test scores overall will drastically drop this year. I am seriously reconsidering my child continuing as a student in this school.

I have a child at Garfield first year and I feel the staff and students are doing a excellent job. I am very pleased with the school and the staff. I would like to say thank you for making my daughters first year of school so pleasant and encouraging. She looks forward everyday to go back to school.
