Garfield is a school that has gone through a major overhaul in all aspects since its reinstatement into the Redwood City School District in 2010. Very skilled leadership and teachers were brought in to address the necessities of the school. Teachers work tirelessly to make sure that students are safe and learning at high levels in Language Arts, Math, Science, and social emotional well being. Additionally, teachers and staff have gone through training to address the emotional needs of students so that students are able to navigate and cope with their own emotions. Moreover, the family resources are above and beyond what is offered at other schools with a highly trained mental health team and additional community partners that offer food and produce, family counseling, and parent trainings to help improve the overall family dynamic outside of the classroom. Garfield has had a difficult history and reputation to overcome but it has made leaps and bounds with the leadership and teachers that are in place right now!
