I am very unhappy with this school. My child has been bullied by both students and teachers. The administration and athletic staff need overhauls. There is a lack of genuineness, discipline and equality. Phone calls are not returned in a timely manner, and some calls are not returned at all. Promises are made and not kept. There are a few good teachers but unfortunately, they are the exception.
Sorry I mistyped in my prior pst so I had the wrong spelling for the word opportunities.
My daughter attended CCG for 2 years and then after her wanting to try the new program at JN Fries she realized it was to difficult for her and I brought her back to CC Griffin for her last year. that was the biggest mistake I could have made for her. She is going through some difficult times and is seeing counseling however her current teachers have it in their minds that she is "trouble" so every thing that comes out of her mouth they give her rr or iss. Yesterday was the last straw and if i have to home school her I will do that. She came back to CCG with a great attitude and now she hates school all her teachers and doesn't want to go back. The only person she respects and feels respected by is Ms. Bullock. It is sad that a child who had, academic difficulties for 2 years came back after a month of JNF and started to excel be put down to this. Now I am not saying that everything that went wrong was not part of my daughter's doing on her self, however once she is marked that is it, she can just look at you the wrong way and they write her up. I have truly had enough of the way this school operates and will be seeking different means for my child.
i attend this school and one day we had a guidence lesson , and our guidence teacher asked everyone in my class what we thaught about this school and a lot of them said it was strict but some of the other kids said it was helpful, fun, friendly, and just like any other school. Most teachers have many fun ways to teach instead of just doing bookwork. If we were bad one day they would give us bookwork. This school also has a diffrent guidence counselor for every grade and kids ALWAYS have the chance to go to her. currently im in 7th grade and i saw some 8th graders doing an activy like a scavengar hunt related to a subject they were doing and i am so excited to get to do that next year.
This school regretfully does not serve the needs of all children. The current Principal, does not believe that average children should have the opportunity to participate in rigorous courses. The school has extremely poor customer service and it is impossible to get someone to return your phone call, unless you contact the district office. The school staff and administration know absolutely nothing about confidentiality. If you have another option, take it!
My son attended Harris Road Middle and transferred to CC Griffin Middle. He was, to my surprise, disappointed with the lack of structure, and mutual respect and discipline at CC Griffin. My second child now attends CC Griffin and with more exposure feel I can regretfully share his opinion.
This was my middle school and I loved every second of my three years there.
This school is wonderfull and very involved with their stundents. They push them for their best every day!
I have found CC Griffin to be a wonderful experience for my boys. The teaching staff is wonderful and attentive. The office staff is pleasant and helpful and the leadership has been unfailing. Even the cafeteria staff is outstanding. My boys have grown so much since being involved with this school. We have been in NY, Fl and now NC school systems and I must say I have not been thrilled with them all. However at CC Griffin that has not been the case. Their grades have been greatly improved due to an open line of communication with their teachers and those same teachers have had a wonderful dedication to not just my kids but to their entire class. The student body is provided with a safe and secure enviroment. All children are expected to behave responsibly and respectfully. I am grateful they got to go to CC Griffin.
They are very responsive, while expecting a great deal in terms of maturity from my student. He is getting a great education there.
