Open Quote I didn't realize how great this school was until I left. This school is not only excellent for learning, but teaches kids to be active in the community, as well as having a very caring aura. Close Quote

Open Quote I have received an excellent education at this institution. I have been able to take many AP classes, such as Calculus and Latin. My teachers have been dedicated and intelligent, and I have been encouraged to ask questions and enjoy my learning process. Garfield High School has provided me an intellectual hunger that I will continue to nourish for the rest of my life. 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.
