Hello Bulldog High School Families,
On behalf of everyone at Garfield Heights High School, welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. We hope you had a safe and enjoyable summer break, and that you are looking forward to buckling down for a successful year. As we begin anew, our building will put a distinct focus on positivity, belonging, and continuous improvement. Parents and guardians will play a vital role in the success of our students, and we invite you to actively participate in your child's education. We value open communication and partnership between home and school to ensure that together, we provide the best support for our young learners.
In a spirit of continuous improvement, the High School will work to continue making progress in our district learning initiative surrounding teacher clarity. Through clearly defined lesson objectives and student success criteria, we hope that students are better able to understand everyday lessons and be able to self-measure their success.
Our dedicated team of educators is committed to providing a nurturing and inclusive learning environment where every student can flourish academically, socially, and emotionally. We want to provide an environment where students feel like they belong.
For our students, please remember to come to school prepared to learn every day. Attending on time and being present in all of your classes will lead to academic success. Please remember to be the best version of yourself and exhibit Bulldog PRIDE (Prepared, Respectful, Involved, Determined, Excellent)
For our families, please remember students' daily attendance is the most crucial aspect of growth and academic achievement. Attending school is a top priority to ensure that students are receiving their education and continuing to grow socially.
