New GHS Vision Statement

This spring Garfield High School developed the following new vision statement:

One Garfield is a community of learners who recognize the history of our institution and the power of its vision and voice to encourage critical thinking and compassion as a means of creating future leaders. We are committed to growing diverse leaders who understand how to work together to create positive change in our school and in our communities.

In order to reach our vision, we will:

  • Encourage healthy dialogue and inquiry about race and equity

  • Build a foundation of collaboration, shared leadership, trust and safety

  • Deepen our relationships with one another and with our students

  • Encourage (foster) and expand the role of youth voice and leadership in decision-making and creating change

  • Help students to identify their unique gifts and the belief that they can reach their dreams

  • Create pathways for all students to be successful
