The Garfield PTSA Mission Statement

To advocate and act for the health, education, and general well being of all students at Garfield High School and beyond.

Garfield High School is unique among Seattle public high schools in our diversity of families, class offerings, sports and activities, and exceptionally talented students. Garfield’s Community Organization (PTSA) engages parents, faculty, students and staff in a creative collaboration that boosts the energy and optimism that keeps our school a first choice among Seattle Public Schools. We are affiliated with the Seattle Council PTSA and Washington State PTA.

The PTSA has been Garfield’s most enduring school support organization. Besides the source of volunteer energy in the classrooms, the PTSA also contributes almost $200,000 in annual giving for school projects, and provides political advocacy for enhanced district and state funding for education.

With over 1600 students, 130 faculty, and a host of volunteers, Garfield is a big and busy place! There are many tools to help you navigate the building, including the eBark (PTSA’s newsletter), the website, and e-mail updates.
