Focus of the school is on college readiness as exemplified in the Destination College program. Each grade level has adopted a different college/university as its mascot.

There is a lot of transition in the district right now as far as top-management, and the recent tax rate election did not pass, but these challenges have ...  Read more

Garcia was a great school for my kids. They are both honor roll students and are offered many academic opportunities. They are challenged by their work and love their teachers. As a student I highly recommend this school.

Very disappointed that my daughter in grade 3 has nothing to play with during lunch. Smaller playgrounds are very unsafe due to the amount of children using them at the same time. Lunches are set up so children can make no choices but are told where to sit and how load they can talk. No parent involvement ...  Read more

Parents are not welcomed into this school like we are in other schools. Principle seems like she wants no parent involvement. Lunch is eaten military style where children are told where to sit and when to go outside. Every child must face the stage and not one another. Teachers do a great job teaching.
