Open Quote I Attended Garfield School Back in the 1980. Started in 4th Grade with Mrs Walker. Cool Bad @$$ teacher with A Cool Vive and A Bunch of Cool Students, 5th Grade With Mrs Churchill Beautiful Teacher who Wouldn't Fall in Love At that Age and as Beautiful she Was (I Was One Of them lol). 6th Grade Mrs Frere, A Strong Lady that She Was there tho do her Job And That was It no joking Around. Thanks To this tallented Ladies Show us How to Respect Others and Do the Right Thing. i thing the System Back then Was More Positive than todays. Thank You Teachers from Garfield School. like They Say Our School Is Our Second HOME. with This I Continue to Show my Family How We Suposted to be respectful to Others same Rules as i Was thought.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
