James A. GARFIELD Elementary SCHOOL
Welcome to the James A. Garfield Elementary School website. Our commitment to the students is to provide a safe, intellectually challenging, and family-centric environment that will help every student become an innovative thinker, creative problem solver, and a kind learner who will be able to thrive in the 21st century.
Our commitment to excellence begins with our staff. Garfield's dedicated team of teachers and support staff bring the joy of learning into the daily lives of our students. Our students are immersed in a diverse, language rich environment which includes Readers and Writers Workshop as the driving force behind our balanced literacy program. Through Go Math!, the Next Generation Science Standards, and explorative opportunities in STEAM, our students learn the importance of analytical thinking. Finally, Garfield School emphasizes what it means to have a growth mindset, the importance of character, and the power that can be found in the word, YET.
