Garcia Middle School Reviews

Garcia is a fantastic school, they excel academics and their teachers are the best. I do have to say though, there has been a change in administration which I do believe will result in a decline in performance. Garcia also has one of the best middle school fine arts programs in all of San Antonio, sometimes outranking many high school orchestras. Their athletics has been on a decline though, but their sports teams are overall very good, better than more than 4/5 of the other middle schools in NISD. Their workload is very oppressive though, especially in their Pre-AP courses. They have a fabulous Gifted and Talented (GT) Program and all of those students carry the school. Too much student drama though since this school services the more affluent part of San Antonio. They have an abundance of clubs that arrange many dances and other activities, including Student Council, NJHS, Science Bowl, etc. There are rarely any fights, and it definitely prepares you for high school. 10/10

The school provides many electives and extracurricular activities. Their band program is excellent and provides the option to choose one or two instruments. Tutors are available for one on one classes. Teachers are patient and willing to go the extra mile to see their students succeed. Their cafeteria meals are well diverse and always tasty. The sports program is diverse and always motivating their students physically and academically. The office staff and administrators are professional and promote student safety. Safety is their number one priority, their police officers provide a safe and welcoming environment. The campus is very clean and well kept.
Garcia has such a positive and judgement free environment. Everyone ther strives to be their best and acedemic integrity is always strongly stressed and exercised.
