One of the reasons we moved here to Dunlap was because we wanted a good school enviroment. We love Griffith!
Once you've been in other systems you realize how wonderful this place is!
This is a great school,as grandparents our grandkids love this school and especially the principal,Sarai Carbaugh, she is very good at what she does,very interested in all that goes on at the school and with every child at the school,as well as working with the parents and grandparents that are raising their grandkids that go to the school
Griffith is a great school. Both our daughters attend and our family loves the atmosphere there. The children are challenged academically and the teachers use many high interests activities to keep them motivated. Mrs. Sarai is now the new principal and we are excited to begin a new year with her and Mrs. Susan! Best of everything ladies! =)
My child started at Griffith after Spring Break. At his old school, his teacher was always complaining about how he didn't have any patience, and how he couldn't stay in his seat. Since he has been at Griffith, I have heard nothing but glowing reviews about my child. I think the difference is that he has a teacher who spends time helping him. He absolutely loves his teachers and actually looks forward to going to school now! What a relief! All of the teachers and the principal have my most heartfelt and complete thanks!
Griffith is exceptional! I volunteered there every day last year and half of this year. The teachers I know there are above average and the principal expects the very Best efforts out of both the teachers and students and speaks over the intercom every morning about 'Being Your Best' and good attitudes every day, how important character and honesty are. I am so impressed with the quality and dedication to education everyone at that school has! Parent Involvement at Griffith is necessary to its accomplishmments. I loved the interaction I had with all the children. Everyone there really cares and are sincere. Kindness is a hallmark there. Griffith is structured for greatness! No doubt about it! My 3 children will be well prepared for their futures of academia! We are so blessed! Bea Cartwright-Rucks
Griffith is an excellent school. The teachers care about their students and strive to have their students excel. The parents are encouraged to volunteer and partcipate in school functions. The third grade teachers are wonderful and push their students to do their best. I am proud to say that my child is a student at Griffith. I look forward to my other children attending as well.
Griffith is a wonderful school. In kindergarten the students learn how to read well. The teachers are very supported by the principles. Even though the school is large it still has a family feeling. Teachers work together and share ideas with each other. Students are for the most part well behaved. Parent involement is encouraged and parents feel welcome. It is a great place to be!
