Garfield Schools Celebrating Excellence


Garrettsville – Congratulations to the students and staff of the James A. Garfield Local School District. The district as a whole has achieved an “Excellent”, or “Excellent with Distinction” rating for five consecutive years with many of the schools holding these titles individually much longer than that. Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, schools will be ranked using a new metric and awarded a letter-grade instead.
