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.

Direct Appeal

Direct Appeal

Your Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) raises funds and organizes events to provide a wide range of educational enrichment programs for our students. Through our various fundraising events throughout the year, including the Direct Appeal and DragonFest (our silent auction), we have helped fund for the entire school a variety of items including the arts program throughout the year, physical education through YMCA, maintain the computer lab, class trips, leveling library for the new school curriculum, classroom supplies, and so much more.

With the programs mentioned above, it costs $345 per student this year. Our goal this year for the Direct Appeal is to reach $10,000. The chart illustrates where the funds go to for each student.

Please help Garfield reach the goal! Any contribution would help!
