Welcome Students, Alums, Neighbors and Friends of Garfield High School!

After all the delays and reschedulings of a pandemic, now we can say: Please join us live in-person on June 4, 2022 to celebrate 100 years of Garfield High School. Come for an hour or two or stay the whole day. Find old friends at mini-reunions; attend the Garfield Golden Grads luncheon or grab a bite to eat at one of the food trucks; enjoy entertainment and displays throughout the building; and celebrate the life and history of this great school.

It was one-hundred years ago in 1920 when the doors first opened. 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?

And so we say with pride: This is what a century of growth and change, struggle and achievement, and purpose and pride looks like! This is Garfield High School through the years and today − and we couldn’t be prouder.

We hope you will join us on Saturday, June 4, 2022. Everyone is welcome! Come if you were a student or a neighbor or if you simply read about us in the news. Come if you are curious or come because you are a proud Bulldog!

The school will be open all day to welcome you. You will find a complete schedule coming to this site as the day draws nearer. Thank you for visiting us and hope to see you soon.
