I am a former student From garfield. I took pride in everything i did there. there have been many changes since my school days. I must say garfied gives a great education, but it is not enforced by most parents. It sickens me that parents will blame the schools for what happens with their child. TO ALL PARENTS: you need to sit down with your child and help them with their work. DO NOT BLAME the facualty. It is not their fault if your child fails.
I had to fight these schools for special help with my child due to bipolar disorder for over 5 years. They do not help you when you have educational learning disabilities at all unless you get the Ohio Coalition involved and amazingly they help sad it took me 5 years to find this out
This school has not proved that it is all that well.I think that there needs to be more supervising because of all the fihgts that go on and all the kids that get into trouble and get suspened. Children do not like being punished for their actions that happen when someone else interrigates them to do so. I think that in the lunch rooms and outside of the school there should be more supervision. Thank you for reading my concerns.
I am please to have transfered my two children to this school, it has given my children the opportunity to develop and understand the skills required to pass to the next level. the children now come home to tell me what they learned in school or if they need help they feel confident asking. they really have come a long way. thanks!
This is a great school system, but this year has been a little shaky.With the new principal, things aren't running as smoothly as usual. My daughter is very upset with some of the rules such as 'assigned seats.' Some new rules are helping the school though. There are a lot of great kids at the school. The teachers are wonderful.
