Finally: We Will Celebrate - Live & In Person!

After all the delays and more delays, we can now say: Please join us live in-person on Saturday, August 27, 2022 to celebrate 100(+) years of Garfield High School. Come for an hour or two or stay the whole day. Find old friends, grab a bite to eat at one of the food trucks, enjoy videos, pictorial displays and entertainment by alumni and students, and celebrate the life and history of this great school.

It was more than a hundred years ago when the doors first opened in 1920. In each following decade Garfield grew and changed. As the course of history unfolded, Garfield experienced the memorable challenges of wars, the great depression, civil rights, space exploration, technology, and rock and roll to name a few. While academics and student activities anchored the central educational experience of our school, it was the unique make-up of Garfield’s student body -- the multitude of cultures and colors and the understanding and life values which emerged from within which made us truly unique. 

Today we are known across the nation as a school like no other. We knew it all along, didn’t we?
