    We recently moved to GH. Griffin is an awesome school. We have great teachers who care about the kids. The staff has gone above and beyond.

    I love Griffin and it's teachers. I have a 3rd grader there since K. She had diffeculty learning to read and Mrs. Crawford has up past were a 3rd. grader should read and retain what they have read. The class sizes are kept low (24) they have assistance and student teachers from a nearby college that help out in addition. They is a good P.T.A. and parent involvement. Its a safe location It is next to the junior high. All teachers have their own phone and email to contact them at any time. They even give out their home phone numbers. The family types that are middle to upper class.

    The principal at this school has demonstrated exemplary leadership to both staff and students. She should be applauded!

    I was dissapointed to see who they named as the new principal. This lady does not smile nor does she try to relate to the children. She stands at attention and yells drills to the children similar to a Military Sargeant. This is not a good match for Griffin.
