Garfield Elementary School is a TK-5th grade school that embraces and celebrates our diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. We are a community of staff, students, parents, and caregivers that believe in developing students’ academic, socioemotional emotional, civic, and cultural competence. We partner with neighbors, community-based organizations, and local businesses to enhance the educational experiences and resources available to our students. We are committed to fostering and building the relationships critically needed to close the racial, linguistic, and economic resource gaps many of our families face to achieve high academic standards for all of our children.
Garfield Elementary is committed to providing a school environment that supports the academic, social-emotional, creative, and civic learning of all students in our care. We believe that a focus on equitable outcomes will not only prepare our students for the future but also live a happy and fulfilled childhood. As a community of learners, we will honor the cultural and linguistic assets in our school community and hold high expectations of ourselves individually and collectively.
