About the School:

As a diverse learning community of students, families, and professional educators, we respect both our differences and similarities in race, ethnicity, culture, language, religion, ideology, life choices, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, physical and mental differences, gender, age, appearance, and marital status. As Garfield Bulldogs we, the students, staff and families, work toward:

  • A climate of trust and respect; these are essential for an effective learning environment.
  • High standards and expectations for all students, with provisions for their individual learning styles.
  • Creating and promoting a positive environment for all to understand that doing so is everybody’s responsibility.
  • Assuming personal responsibility for achieving our school’s educational culture of student achievement.
