Garces has no principal. The current one is temporary. The administration/counseling personal lack administrative credentials. Multiple teaching positions were vacant and filled with relatives or friends. Grade inflation. Definitely look elsewhere for quality private school education.

The school provides a great ...  Read more

We are not one of the wealthy, social climber families, or one of the families on financial aid, we fall right in the middle - yet we have been treated with such kindness and caring from day 1. The workload is challenging, ...  Read more

While not a magic bullet, Garces provided my daughter with a fine education. What makes Garces special is that, in general, the students are highly motivated and there is tremendous parental involvement. The faculty tries very hard to get to know and meet the needs of the students. Although we did ...  Read more
