  • Great excellent high school. My son attends Oracle a program within Garfield High School. His teacher is Great! The thing I love about this school is that I can actually talk to his teacher. I can call he and ask questions. I know what my son is doing. I am involved. It was hard to be involved when he went to regular high school. The staff is great and the school is built nice. My son is doing well there and the kids that attend the school are good. It is small, so the student teacher ratio is low. The teachers make time to know their students. This is a non-traditional school, so it is new for some parents. I belive that this was the best choice for my son. He was never a bad child and he is smart. He progressed in this school. It is a positive environment and safe.

  • Everyone gets along with each other very well, the school staff and the students bond well; like a family. Campus is neat, very green by having recycling bins around the food court, the new kitchen will look nice for next years cooking class and for the future. I recommend parents to send their children to this school because it has a great program called the A.C.C.E.S.S. Club, students take field trips to places that requires science classes such as Biology, Marine Science. Its a great program to make students enjoy their class and to learn more about what science really is by having hands on experience.
