Garfield Elementary School serves students in grades first through fourth grade with a student population of approximately 200.
Igniting Excitement for Lifelong Learning
Academic, social, and behavioral success relies first on a child feeling safe and supported. Then to grow, children must also be appropriately challenged with high standards and effective instruction. That’s what we do!
Our well-trained, highly professional staff provide a positive, supportive, and safe environment. Every day, students are learning to work cooperatively and interact respectfully and intellectually. Teachers are dedicated to finding effective learning strategies that ignite a love for learning and build success for each and every child.
The Whole Student
Research shows that children are more likely to graduate when their social-emotional needs are met and they learn appropriate behaviors. Social-emotional learning is integrated into our comprehensive approach to education. Our specialists serve students in Early Childhood through 12th grade to help them successfully navigate to high school graduation.
Our Goal: To Prepare Students to be Successful for Life!
We work hard to support, encourage, and foster a school climate that allows for creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and reflection, so that our students experience the best conditions for learning. Through a process of feedback and reflection, we foster a safe, positive, student-centered learning community.
Our collaborative staff works to foster relationships!
We work to foster relationships with students, parents, and community members to support student growth. We believe that our parents and community members know they are vital to our school’s success. We invite and encourage all parents and community members to partner with us to promote and support the health, well-being, and education of all our students.
