Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
They don't care for the most part. Many bullying cases aren't reported because they don't get help. This school does just that.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
Nope not at all. Prepare to get kicked out if you are lagging behind. They don't want to deal with you at all.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Students don't really interact. This is especially bad since they boasts how they are diverse and having a great community.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
If you're a high performing student then yes. If you require more help this school isn't for you. They even threaten students to be kicked out if they don't get their grades up. This is to basically help with their school overal score.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
You can tell that most just don't care. They don't want to do anything out of classroom time and basically providing no help to students. Don't know how this is a 4 stat school at this point.


Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Just the typical homework. Nothing special or intriguing for students. Basically boring as always.



- a
Absolutely disgusting group of people working there. They boasts how the community is "diverse" and how they help minorities. All wrong.... They kick out students who performs badly academically and send them to other schools. This is to keep their own scores high while plummeting others. I personally had been threaten to be kicked out by the counselor. Yeah the counselor...He did nothing to help me with the only thing of telling me to do my work. With that kind of "counselling" he should be fired. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorder however he did nothing to find the actual problem. I liked the school when going in. I just didn't expect them to be doing such shady things behind everyone.



- a
Worst school experience imaginable. School desperately needs better leadership. Poor students, many of them fall through the cracks because no one in administration cares or does their job well.




- a
Garfield High School has some absolutely terrible teachers. Whoever does the hiring should be fired.



- a
Garfield is an interesting school. it is a happy mix of students are highly gifted, neighborhood students and those lucky to get a seat through school choice.. As a result you have a very well rounded school with something for everyone, be it a choice of over 20 some AP classes or a spot on the state championship basketball team or a musician in the top high school orchestra in the country or member of the Shakespeare club. This school has it all. For a large urban school it is very well run. The students are very active in the community.
