Garfield Wa is wear I have grown up for a long time. The atmosphere is great, people are kind and the school district is amazing. Teachers care about there students exceeding highly. Great sports program and other extra circular activities. You will have a commute into town for shopping but it's worth it to me.

Don’t waste your time with Garfield wa.the best thing that could happen to this town is to vanish ASAP.to many politics and it seems like they want be in your business at all times .not a place to live if you want quiet and privacy .if you are looking for bs and constant gossip and stupid rules and ordnance’s then this is the place for you .run away and don’t look back
