Garrison Elementary is an excellent neighborhood school. My daughter is 3 years old and started PreK-3 there this Fall.

Garrison Elementary School is a great school. As an alumni of the school, Garrison has always been the idea for my children. My fourteen-year-old is also an alumni and now my seven-year-old attends this school. Garrison have awesome teachers and a principal that cares about the children and the parents.

This school has done a 180 degree turn in the last 2 years with the momentum for change lead by a small but strong and involved PTA, the hiring of a new dynamic principal and a teacher base that is experienced, engaged and developing constantly. I have 2 daughters aged 4 and 3 that currently attend PS ...  Read more
