I liked the small town feel of the Garretson School District. I was familiar with the students and staff. I always felt comfortable going to the teachers and asking questions. One thing that I would like to see changed would be to give more options of classes for the students.

One thing I have really enjoyed about Garretson School District is the close community that it is located in. Having a small community allows everyone in town to get involved in school activities. It also allows kids to get to know eachother and their teachers really well.
My favorite thing about getting my education from Garretson is that theres always a teacher to help you being the classes are small and you build relationships with teachers. One thing i would change is having more options for classes.
