    "This is our last year at Garrettford as we will be relocating to another city in the summer. My oldest son spent five wonderful years here, my younger three. Most of teachers are very good - they really care about the students and the subject matter. There is a lot of parent involvement and community events. The vast diversity of this school and the school's commitment to instilling tolerance in the students really prepares the kids for real life. I highly recommend this school."

    "Mostly great teachers (a few old fogies who need to go because they are mean), mostly super kind and helpful. They HAD a great principal in Mr. McAllister. Nice, diverse, challenging school. A bit too much emphasis on testing, but you find that anywhere these days (unless you go for private school)."

    "Garrettford Elementary is one of the better schools in this very large district. Under the guidence of Mr. McAllister, Garrettford has managed to maintain a positive environment for students, teachers and staff. They work together to lay a foundation for a child's love of learning. Too bad this foundation can't be built upon once the child leaves Garrettford and move onto DH Middle School"
