    Ms. Baker/Kaminski seems to know what she's doing. Test scores look great. She's always visible in the classrooms and the teachers and kids love her.

    Garrett as a whole is a wonderful school. Most teachers have been here for a long time and their dedication really shows. But since Ms. Baker has taken over the atmosphere has gone down hill. Teacher who had been there for 15 plus years are leaving and parents who had had students there before are mon=ving their siblings. The reason is the unpredicability of the principal. The positive climate has changed and not for the better.
