We are honored to welcome your child to our school. It is our goal to provide each child with a safe and loving environment so they can learn and mature appropriately. We have reduced out of school suspensions by 90% over past years, by incorporating restorative justice practices and socio-emotional learning strategies into our everyday curriculum.

We look forward to a year full of new friendships, energizing challenges, strong relationships, great successes, positive choices, and increased learning. We are all excited about the great things happening at our school, such as, K-8 Project Lead the Way and DAT Kids after-school care. And welcome some new and familiar community partners: 2 Chicks & a Hammer, Morgan, Emmanuel Church, and PwC, among others. We are always seeking new ways to get involved with our community and hope to see you at one of our future events!

For the first time EVER in 25 years, the Executive Board of PLTW - Project Lead The Way came to visit a school and chat with students about their experiences with PLTW STEM and guess what school they chose to come visit?!? Board members came from all over the country to speak to our students, along with Mr. Murphy and Principal Kuchik. This is the first time in almost three years that the PLTW Board has met in person as well. Our students did an amazing job describing their projects from this past year and experiences in Mr Murphy’s room. Everyone was impressed with their ability to apply STEM knowledge into their real life as well as in other areas of their educations. #proudtobepublic #futureEngineers #TheGarfieldDifference #TeamIPSIndianapolis Public Schools ...
