Welcome to the Garfield Heights City Schools, and the start of the 2014-2015 School Year. I hope that students, staff and parents enjoyed a relaxing summer break, and that the entire district is prepared for the upcoming year. This year, the entire district will be working extremely hard to continue improving the academic successes of each of our students. The GHCS will accomplish this by adhering to several important core values that I have learned in nearly 30 years in public education. First, all decisions that are made throughout the Garfield Heights City Schools will be student-centered. To us in the district, this means that the outcome to any decision we as educators make, should positively impact a students’ academic approach. After all, putting the students first, is our top priority. Secondly, we will strive to build better relationships so that we can appropriately guide our students. The relationship between a teacher and a student is one that has the potential to impact them throughout the school year, and forever. And finally, we at the Garfield Heights City Schools believes that each student has the capability to learn… no excuses.
During this 2014-2015 School Year, you will see a happy and eager staff, that is will to place the students’ needs above all else. Thank you for your continued support of the Garfield Heights City Schools.
