Highly diverse, big school that nevertheless has a homey feel. Tons of good teachers, nice kids.

Mostly great teachers (a few old fogies who need to go because they are mean), mostly super kind and helpful. They HAD a great principal in Mr. McAllister. Nice, diverse, challenging school. A bit too much emphasis on testing, but you find that anywhere these days (unless you go for private school).

My daughters attended Garrettford. The school promoted self confidence, diversity and compassion. One of my daughters graduated from Syracuse and the other from The University of Pennsylvania. And it all started at Garretford!
