    "We have a 1st grade student and a kindergartner at Garfield Elementary and absolutely love the school. To begin, the administration is great--we see the principal on a regular basis and she knows the kids by name and is very motivated to make the school the great place it is. Classroom sizes are amazingly low for the Chicago area--about 21 kids per class and our kids have always had a teacher and a full-time aide in their classrooms. That's a 10- or 11- to 1 student to teacher ratio! Our kids have IEPs and we have been very impressed with how the school considers their individualized needs and also listens to us as parents. There is a new Parent Teacher Council starting this year, and there was a huge turnout at the family ice cream social last week. One of the best parts about the school is that its K through 2nd grade. For parents with many kids, it may seem like a pain to have your 4th grader and 1st grader in different places, but we really like how it helps keep our young kids young. The quality of education is great too--last year our kindergartner hadn't started reading before school, and by the end of the year he was reading far more than just sight words. Love it!"

    "I wish the special education department was more structred and better informed. They dont seem to want to put any money into this program to make it better. School is small and the kids seem happy."
