    "Horrible is the only way to explain it. The teachers act like they are nice and are willing to work with your child but they don't. They expect them to be perfect at the age of 5 1/2. The hours are WAY too early and the school could explain things better. If we don't sell house in time for next school year I will be putting my son in private school."

    "Garfield Elementary School in the Mentor School district is an excellent example of the finest in elementary school education in the nation. Well qualified teachers who are committed to excellence and personal attention to each student are augmented by a strong, supportive principal and administration. The personal quality with which the principal and teachers interact with the students as well as parents could serve as a model for "the best" in educational climates. As the school year begins, teachers are eagerly greeting their new students and students are anxiously excited to begin the learning, growing process with their friends once again. Vacations are fine, but the school year is where the true journey to greatness and success takes place. Garfield School is a model launching pad for top students to move forward toward the higher grades and ultimately on to successful professionals and vocations. At the base of each of those successes is the learning that takes place at Garfield Elementary School. All elementary schools would do well to emulate Garfield School in their quest for excellence in the educational enterprise."

    "My child has been in this school for 2 years now and overall its fine, notthe greatest. The school building in old, not enough lighting, class rooms are crammed up. Appearance is shabby and unclean. The office staff is friendly and the principal is jovial, but the teachers are 'hit and miss'. Some have a real scarry face and studies show that facial expressions have a lot to do with connectedness and approacheability. The We care program needs improved, the staff is unfriendly, and to impose discipline, they just make kids sit with no outside time. The do not check or inquire if a kid is sitting in the corner, no interaction and its pretty much like a confinement. There is also subtle bullying by older kids by isolation and the staff cares least."

    "My child has been in this school and overall he is happy but there are a few concerns that i have as a parent. obviously there is not a racial diversity which makes it somewhat harder for the kids that arenon whites to fit in. Also i dont see that despite the lack of diversity that the teachers ever make an attempt to fit the non white kids in the class room by may be celebrating that particular students festival or have that student tell the class about their culture or religion. There is a lot more focus on academics and getting work sheets done and there is minimal emphasis on extra curriculum i do not like their WE CARE (after school care) at all. The staff is rude to kids, very strict and hardly interact with the kids. even onsunny days kids are not taken out."
