 ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

Mr. Gilmer Garber, a local farmer, and Mr. Grover Manderfield, a local businessman, donated 20 acres of land adjacent to Highway One for use as a high school. The school opened on December 8, 1953. In 1972, a new Gar-Field was erected in the present location.

Communities served are Dumfries, Montclair, Dale City, and Woodbridge.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS

Gar-Field's IB program is one of the largest IB programs in the world having over 25 courses and over 700 exams administered in May 0f 2012.

Gar-Field High School is entering its seventh year as an International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme school, a prestigious worldwide program that offers a rigorous two-year pre-university course of study, leading to examinations, which meets the needs of highly motivated eleventh and twelfth grade students.

This program provides students of different linguistic, cultural, and educational backgrounds with the intellectual, social, and critical perspectives necessary for their success in our changing global society.

IB not only provides challenging classes but helps create a well-rounded student by requiring that participants complete a minimum of 150 hours of community service.

Gar-Field draws students from across the eastern portion of the county to take advantage of this valuable educational opportunity.

Enrollment in the IB programme is open, which allows students to take as few as one IB class or a complete IB schedule and anything in between.

ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS

SAT Prep classes, REACH (for students who did not pass the eighth grade SOL in English/math), and community-based after school tutoring.

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Gar-Field has fifty or more extra-curricular activities representing a cross-section of student and faculty interests, such as: The Model United Nations Club, Environmental Club, International Club, DREAMS, SCA, Key Club and several performing groups, (including Dominants, ESSENCE, and the Indianettes).

OPPORTUNITIES FOR PARENT & COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

WHAT MAKES OUR SCHOOL UNIQUE?
