3/26/2009parentThis is a great school with a positive energy! The kids love to learn and the teachers are very motivated and creative. The principal is never in her office because she is in the halls and classrooms interacting with the students. She is dedicated and dynamic. This is a school that is truly trying to make a difference in the lives of its students.
11/16/2006parentThere is real room for improvement at this school. The school has an authoritarian feel to it. The school has a positive behavior system in place, but it fails to recognize positive behaviors in students. Griffith is very MAP driven and little 'student driven.' Students all read books on the same level and take the same spelling tests as well, which is no beneficial to a diverse group of students. I feel like that I never know what is going on in the school. I would like to get involved in the PTO, but I often do not know when the meeting is. I usually get the PTO notice letter the day of the meeting.
2/18/2006parentThere is room for improvement. There is lack of parent involvement, and teacher commitment in certain grades. My child was not turning in homework, and I do weekly progress checks on my child. I was not told until report cards came out. I asked the teacher beforehand and was not given any information. I feel the only material being taught to the students is what is required by MAP testing. I have had problems with the PTO fundraiser, where my money was taken but no merchandise was given. The principal did not return my phone calls, and I had to corner her at her office. She was hardly ever in her office. There is a new principal, now. Since I have graduated, I have seen changes occur not for the best. Hopefully, there will be positive changes for the children.
