    "I appreciate the willingness some teachers have to help their students, it what makes the school better honestly. I wish there wasn't such an emphasis on sports, there isn't any way someone who attends GHS could say academics are valued as much as sports are. Also, nepotism is strong within this school district; it would be nice if teachers were hired based on their skill, not who their relative is. It is ultimately what you as the student make of your high-school career, but for those who cannot afford to stay after school for extra help or afford tutoring will struggle in this school with the amount of unwilling teachers."

    "Garfield High is very strict. Teachers do yell at students over little things, as well as give detention and threaten to call security on little to nothing situations. But some teachers are very kind and caring. Uniforms are a must. You always have to have a hall pass when not in a class room. No bullying or fighting allowed but it still happens, and not much is done. In all honesty i, very much so, dislike Garfield High School."

    "While there are many motivated and helpful teachers, there are also some that do not care and do not teach."

    "My experience in Garfield High School was pretty average. My school did not have many resources when I was attending there such as child study team or a sense of school-connectedness. The education was pretty good, however it definitely depended on the student. I have learned now, through younger siblings that the school is doing a much better job."

    "It is a very diverse school with adequate education. The professors seem to handle their classes with order."
