School Philosophy

Garfield School is committed to providing the best education for our students by making positive use of our unique characteristics as a small rural school. Students enjoy a small class size where every student is recognized as an individual with talents. Successful students feel competent about what they can do. The school stresses basic skills and the application of those skills using a developmentally appropriate approach. The development of skills extends to social skills and the growth of students as positive, contributing members of their community.
