I think there is a lot of favoritism at this school and I think there are several teachers who do not enjoy teaching but are trying to "hang in there" until they can collect retirement. Additionally the administration does not hold teachers and staff accountable for violating district policies and procedures. There is a culture of lip service when parents express concerns but appropriate actions are seldom taken. As a parent you have to take matters into your own hands and utilize individuals at the district level. However the test scores are good so it would appear nothing else matters like crushing the spirits of the 6th graders who enter the school so they exit 8th grade with a complete dislike of school and lack of trust in the adults who are responsible for inspiring a life-long love of learning. Also forget about parent involvement...the last thing they want is to have parents around unless of course you are one of the "chosen ones."
My school is awesome but the lockers are troubling. I like this school and there is many students that are nice and friendly to me. I love it.
Elton M Garrett Junior High School has a great principal who cares about the students and great teachers as well. They are not afraid to try a variety of activities to help students learn.
I went to this school in the early 1990's. It was a great school. I had a lot of fun and a lot of friends. I love Garrett middle school. So many memories.
I am 6th grader at Garrett so far this school is awesome I am very proud to be a Garrett Bobcat!!!!!!!
The school has allot to offer the students. Even though it is a small school the arts are flourishing. In particular the orchestra program. Mrs. Riley is fantastic! A firm but caring teacher that goes the extra mile both musically and in caring about the students. My son is graduating this year and is excited to continue with the same teacher at the high school.
There is a huge bullying issue at this school and there is favoritism. Punishment is up to who ever the vice principal is at the time and varies greatly.Little is done to contain the bullying.There are some good teachers there but the atmosphere there with the bullying undermines the good of the few good caring teachers
This school has some veryy good teachers and some that need to stay on topic and teach the students so that they can learn not just teach their plan and thats it. This school is very spirited. I am in 8th grade and like three teachers will push you soooo hard. And like two aren't very good teachers.
This is a small school but the principal and the teachers work very hard to provide for the best academic experience.
I believe that Garrett Middle School has many fascinating quality's about the school but we could improve. Garrett needs to observe the students behaviors in a more effective way. The students themselves need to be more mature too. Garrett needs to create more reasonable punishments too.
This was the best school Ive ever gone to. It made me sad to leave.
I feel that the staff teachers and the principal are absolutely wonderful! My son had a very difficult time at M.P.K. Unprofessional is one of the words that I would use to describe M.P.K. So needless to say my son was very reluctant to trust anyone at school. We had a meeting with the principal Ms. Hood and some of her staff. They were kind understanding and supportive. My son is absolutely shining in there classes. He has accelerated classes and loves them! The teachers are fair and they listen to the student and are quite helpful in every aspect of the class. I am thrilled to have such professionals teaching my son Thank you Garrett for instilling faith into back into my son.
Teachers should learn to teach on a level that the students can acheive rather than pride themselves on how hard their classes are. Too much favortisim in this school.
