This school is amazingly high with acedemics. I am a student there and I have had good experience on this campus!!!

I have had 4 children attend this school. I like the teachers and the academics. They also still involve the students in sports activities unlike many school districts in the area.

I go to this school and I just got to say I love it. Most teachers are great. The broadcasting network is funny (GBN)

I do agree with a lot of the reviews, the teacher quality is excellent. My daughter is finishing up her last year 08' at Griffith and I know that she will miss staff as well as her teachers.

Griffiths Middle School
Downey Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
