Welcome to Garfield Middle School

Hello, this is Garfield Middle School Principal Richard Rigoglioso, 
I wanted to remind you about our upcoming event. Garfield Middle School will be hosting its annual Back-to-School Night on September 27th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. We are excited to welcome you back to the school and provide valuable information for the upcoming academic year.

Prior to Back-to-School Night, we will be holding a brief informational meeting regarding Garfield Middle School in the cafetorium from 5:30 PM to 6:00 PM. We encourage all parents to attend this session to learn more about our school's programs, policies.

Back to school night is an excellent opportunity for you to meet your child's teachers, explore the school, and gain insights into their educational experience at Garfield Middle School. We value your involvement and look forward to seeing you on September 27th.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need further information. We hope to see you there!

Garfield Middle School Uniform Update 2023-2024

Attention, Garfield Middle School families! The vibrant colors for our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders this year are here. Our budding 6th graders will don green, our diligent 7th graders a classic gray, and our soon-to-graduate 8th graders a bold blue. Ensure your child is ready for the new academic year by purchasing the school shirts from YNK Uniform Store. Visit in-person at 125 Getty Avenue, Clifton, NJ 07011 or conveniently shop online at YNK Uniform Store. Let’s start the school year in style!
Donate School Uniform
We ask that 8th graders donate their shirts and pants to the school so we can distribute them to students in need.
