I can't even begin explaining how wonderful Garza is. Garza has saved my education. I attended Anderson high school for my whole freshman year and part of my sophomore year. They let me fall through the cracks because I was a slow learner. I soon heard about Garza. They welcomed me last year with open ...  Read more

The faculty and staff at Garza truly care about the students. They do everything that they can to give that student the tools and confidence that he or she needs to succeed.

Garza was the best thing that ever happened to me. The students, staff, everyone was working to help me graduate.

I attended Bowie before I came to Garza and immediately could tell that this was ...  Read more

Best school on the East side of Austin. Was in a rough neighborhood, but this is now being gentrified and not as dangerous as it was a few years ago.

Garza is definitely my top choice out of the four Austin high schools I attended. I went from being a homeless high school dropout to recently completing my freshman year of college with A's and B's. Not bad. I owe it all to Garza and the wonderful faculty and staff.

She wasn't slow enough to receive special help and wasn't quick enough to keep up with the pace the teachers were made to use. We even sent her to ...  Read more

After I became a teenage mother, I chose Garza as a way to finish my education. I could have not made a better decision. The staff at Garza helped me with anything I needed during my attendance there, and are still looking out for me with open arms. Without Garza as an option for education, I would not ...  Read more
