High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
James A. Garfield High School is a public high school in the Seattle Public Schools district of Seattle, Washington, USA. It is known for its outstanding academic and arts programs, and for its high degree of cultural diversity. Located along 23rd Avenue between E. Alder and E. Jefferson Streets in Seattle's urban Central District, Garfield draws students from all over the city. Garfield is also known as the magnet school for the school district's accelerated progress program for especially gifted students. As a result it has many college level classes for students to take ranging from calculus-based physics to Advanced Placement studio art. It competes each year with the Lakeside School, a private school, for the highest number of graduating National Merit scholars in the city. The school was established in the year 1920. Theodore Howard II is the principal of the school.
James A. Garfield High School was founded in 1920 as East High School at its current location. The buildings have lasted for over eight decades, but are being partially demolished in a sweeping redesign of the school which began in June 2006. The remodel is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2008 making the class of 2009 the only class to attend both the old and new Garfield. There was a fight to hold off the remodel to preserve the building's history including a city initiative to preserve the auditorium as a historic site, thereby blocking the remodel. The new design has wider hallways to better accommodate the mass of students during passing periods and a new start-of-the-art performing arts center. 

Garfield has many other sports and club sports including, golf, football, cross country, soccer, gymnastics, wrestling, baseball, softball and lacrosse. Many of the students at Garfield also participate in crew also. They focus on training students for particular careers and then placing them in successful careers after graduation. They have a devoted team of staff and instructors ready and willing to help you from enrollment to 10 to 12 grades.
