School is drained of resource due to corupt local politics. There is no ac in the building and towards the end of the school year people would faint from heat exhaustion. We would occasionally be sent home if there student would collapse from heat exhaustion.
The students are lazy which is understandable considering the type of parenting you notice
Garfield High School is a god awful school. It is over populated and the teachers there are horrible. I have not met any teacher that would actually stand in front of the classroom and teach, rather, they read notes from broken smart-boards, notes that you can find online. While students are passing out from heat exhaustion, the main office, is the only place where it is fully air conditioned. It is sad to see that the people that are supposed to teach the leaders of tomorrow can barely set up a well thought out lesson plan and grade things on time. This school is disgusting in many ways, do not send your children here. Let me not get into detail about the so-called "guidance counselors " who do absolutely nothing to help a kid out when needed. They are oblivious to everything. Garfield High School is horrible. Run away, fast.
This HS is horrible!! Do not send your child here. They don't care about their students only their pay check. Administration is unprofessional and conceding towards concern parents. They don't do anything to keep their students off the streets. They actually throw them in the streets. Students text on their phones and the teachers allow it. They don't care!! There is too much politics in Garfield to try to make a difference. I tried and got no where. They protect each other. Its a shame for us parents who can not afford to move or send our child someplace else where education and students come first.
