James A. Garfield Senior High School Reviews
james a garfield is a good school and there are good teachers that help student with special needs and want a higher education.
It is overpopulated with little resources and knowledge of college prerequisites. Staff is not the best, counselors are hard to get a hold of and there needs to be more relevant education in order to obtain the attention of mostly hispanic students and parents.
