James A. Garfield Local School District Reviews

James A. Garfield is a small town school that allows students to have plenty of one on one attention. The food is not the best, the over all administration is great but in the schools it is sub par. Also it is nearly impossible to get a child that needs an IEP one. I know a person 2 grades behind in elementary school and they still want the child to be worse off before they will give out an IEP. The high school is great though the others are lacking to say the least!

Compared to the other schools in the area Garfield is one of the better ones, although not by a lot. The classes, teachers, and everything academic is decent, you really get out what you put in, people will try to help you if you need it. The school is small enough that you'll know just about everyone by name. If you play a sport all of the staff will know all about you, otherwise, they probably won't remember your name. The school has a some clubs and organizations that aren't bad, the only issue is that a lot of funding goes into football. If you're coming to Garfield you have nothing to worry about everyone is very accepting and the classes aren't hard if you put any effort at all into doing well.
The school's personnel works hard to have each individual reach their maximum level of efficiency. Adults and peers try to accommodate shortfalls and assist you in improving. Beyond a new track and a mentoring/internship system, I would want nothing more.
