Celebration

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

 

​After all the delays and rescheduling, and more rescheduling, of a pandemic, now we can 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?

​And so we say with pride: This is what more than 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, August 27, 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!

​We’ll look forward to seeing you in our tents on the athletic fields, and, as restrictions allow, inside the gymnasium, Quincy Jones Performing Arts Center, and main building. 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 on Saturday, August 27th
