Open Quote The ONE review written here is a GROSS exaggeration, and a complete distortion of reality. There is not "one major fight" every day as stated by the only reviewer to comment here. Teachers are NOT just there for the paycheck, and to state otherwise is insulting and ignorant.There are many fine teachers at Garside, and several have given up lucrative careers in order to teach the MANY DISADVANTAGED AND AT RISK STUDENTS in attendance. One of the largest issues for teachers, staff, and administration is the lack of parental involvement and parental apathy. Approximately 40+ of the student population are English Language Learners which puts an incredible strain on teachers to teach children who not only do not know English, but are also below grade level when tested in their native language. Yes, the school issues iPads. Many parents do little to ensure that iPads are appropriately used in the home for educational purposes, and allow students to use the iPads for gaming. Also, many parents have been documented to take the iPads for their own personal use, leaving the child struggling to complete assignments in class.This is the 21st century, and students must become proficient at using technology if they are to become successful contributors to society. Many parents do not participate in the "at home" aspects of their students' learning, leaving the teacher in many cases, as the primary (or sole) role model in matters pertaining to education. Please dig deeper into Garside before believing this biased, and discriminatory review. There is more than meets the eye. Talk to the teachers. Talk to the principal. Teachers do not take up this profession for "paychecks." They aren't that big. Compared to those living in the area, the "check" may seem large to some, but get REAL! Teachers don't do this for the money. We do it for the betterment of the greater society at large. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter went to this school. It is a mistake to send your child/children to this school. There is at least one major fight a day amongst the students. It is completely out of control. There are some decent teachers there, but truth be told they are just there to earn a paycheck. It truly reminds me of the schools that you see in the gang movies from Hollywood. If your little one in a brawler then this is the school to send them to! Oh, I almost forgot, this school also issues iPads to the students. So rest assured as your child is walking home he/she is walking with a $400 price tag in their backpack. Close Quote

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.
