Open Quote We have been a Garfield family for 7 years. I love this school, I love the teacher and leadership. Garfield is a family and the staff their go above and beyond to care for their students. Anytime I have had an issue, I have had immediate response and have always been happy with the conclusion. I can't say enough good things about our school. 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.
