Garfield is a public elementary school located at the base of Coit Tower n- one of the most picturesque spots in the city of San Francisco. As one of the first public elementary schools in the city, Garfield has been providing a rich academic environment for local children for more than 100 years. Today, Garfield is a small, tight-knit community serving 240 children of diverse cultural and economic backgrounds in grades K-5.

Garfield Elementary offers general education classes for grades K-5; a Chinese Immersion program for grades K-1 (additional grades will be added every academic year through grade 5); a Special Day Class (SDC) program for children with high-functioning autism in grades K-5; and an after-school program from 1:50 – 6:00pm every school day. In addition to the music, art and P.E. programs that are offered throughout the district, Garfield partners with San Francisco community-based organizations to provide enrichment opportunities for its students. These partners include CUESA (the Center for Urban  Education about Sustainable Agriculture); the Chinatown Y.M.C.A; the San Francisco Opera Guild; LEAP Arts in Education; and more.

After school programs

Garfield Elementary has one on-site after school program, which operates in partnership with the Community Youth Center of San Francisco (CYC). This after-school program at Garfield runs from 1:50 – 5:45 p.m every school day throughout the year, and provides homework and academic assistance, recreation, and enrichment to each Garfield student who participates. Utilizing a club model, the program focuses on three areas of enrichment: interest clubs (cooking, video production, gardening, and girls soccer); language clubs (Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, and Indian); and academic clubs. It is designed to support both the children and Garfield families and also strives to incorporate community involvement as a key component of the program.

In addition, after-school care is provided by the Telegraph Hill Neighborhood Center. Attending Garfield students are picked up by Telegraph Hill Neighborhood Center staff directly from school at 1:50 p.m., and then they make the short walk to Tel-Hi together.
