Kids at Hope

At Garfield School, we embrace the Kids at Hope belief system that states and demonstrates that all children are capable of success. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Through our Kids at Hope belief system, we help students and families establish the following success elements:

  • Anchor or Parent: This is the person who takes responsibility for the student’s emotional and physical well-being 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
  • Other Caring People: Helping children surround themselves with lots of people who believe in them and want them to be the very best they can be.
  • High Expectations: We raise the bar to help children achieve well beyond what they think possible.
  • Opportunities for Success: We recognize and help facilitate opportunities for children to be successful.
