Garfield High School, Seattle
Seattle's Garfield High School is like no other high school in Washington State. Its central location, diverse student population, academic opportunities and expectations, clubs and student-centered focus make it not only a unique academic institution, but a top choice among students year after year. Garfield's excellence begins in the classroom and extends to a variety of assessments including the High School Proficiency Exam, End of Course Exams and college preparation exams such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test. Students aspire to be challenged and succeed in academic advancement through the rigorous programs and activities offered at Garfield. The school has the largest and most successful Advanced Placement program around, offering 15 AP courses and 15 Honors courses spanning the arts, sciences and humanities, including three language courses that four out of five students enroll in. Most notably, however, is Garfield's outstanding music education program, which attracts gifted young musicians from across the city and state. The school's nationally recognized jazz band has won every major competition on the West coast and took home first place awards in the Essentially Ellington National Jazz Band Competition and Festival at New York's Lincoln Center in 2009 and 2010.
