    "School's fine. The teachers tend to be nice, the building seems to be in working order. Only things I'd change would be to give the place a fresh coat of paint, and get some better food in the cafeteria."

    "My highschool experience at Griffith Senior High School has been great! The people here are so welcoming & inviting. Theyre very nice people to be around everyday and the school is handled well with the support of great administrators. For the most part, everyone gets along here and you have opportunities to do so many new things! Such as clubs or sports. The teachers are also great and help you in every way they can. They do go above and beyond for their students. Our school here in Griffith isn't perfect, but its close!"

    "Griffith high school is a really good school to attend. Also it a great and quiet area to live in. There is little to know crime at all and it very fun. Kids are very friendly and easy to get alone with. It not a drama school and most kids are focus on a common goal. All race get along well and there kids are really independent. The sports are very organize and pround to be apart of.Also the fan always come out and support the sport events."

    "This school in all of its reality was much like any other school in fact we all interpret things differently what made this school great or even average depends on the given student , in my case as Charles Dickens put it " it was the best of times it was the worst of times". I had points in my High School experience where I believed administration was only really concerned with highlight students or prominent athletes , but some of them really do care about the nice quite kid who keeps to himself. I met some of my favorite people in the world here and although there have been some deep trial and tribulations for lack of attention on teacher to student teaching relationship and bullying that never went about the right way or resolved I would do it all over again for those small rare moments that did make me smile . I'm in band which this school administration barley pays for , but for the longest of time was the only thing that kept me going through out the day the small people were really the big people behind the scene of this school conducting the very fabric of this school's internal greatness and I will , never forget that ."

    "Teachers at my school can range from very lax , down to earth more than just a teacher , but a friend to tell you right from wrong as well as adequately teach their subject . Most if not all teachers by my experience will direct you in the right path to acquire the proper information to pass the class as well as offer after school help session to know what to do. There are also more than one teacher in that particular subject to learn in various ways , there usually I no getting out of it , teachers will be assertive to the student in what needs to be done. Although some teacher do answer n condescending tones as well as pick favorites , really stinging other students who aren't a particular favorite , there are up and downs to the teachers and my school. Over all a prominent amount of students excel at what they do with the direction and motivation of the teachers around us ."
