    "I really could not be more pleased with Garrettford. While I am uncertain about the middle and high schools in this district, Garrettford is definitely exceeding my expectations. The teachers my children have had thus far have been excellent. My older son had some challenges and they have worked very closely with me to get him on track (including, as it turns out, programs for giftedness). They host a number of events each year to involve the community, there is zero tolerance for bullying (and they really mean zero tolerance), and diversity is truly celebrated. 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"
