GHS Reaches Significant Milestone

Griffin High School has maintained 100 years of continuous accreditation. Accreditation is designed to help schools and districts boost continuous performance efforts for the benefit of their students. The accreditation process involves three ongoing components: 1) meeting high quality standards; 2) implementing a continuous process of improvement; and 3) engaging in quality assurance through internal and external review. “We are proud of Griffin High School’s century of AdvancED and SACS Accreditation,” said Superintendent Dr. Curtis Jones. “Reaching this milestone validates Griffin High’s commitment to continuous improvement and excellence.” GHS will be recognized as a Georgia “100 year school” in November at the annual AdvancED Fall Conference in Atlanta.

Mr. Simmons, Mr. Dumas, and Mr. Lindsey all participate and encourage Bow Tie Tuesday.  It is done in conjunction with students to promote dressing for positive attitudes and presence.  The idea is that when you dress nice you’ll act nice and present yourself in a positive light.   The goal is to instill a career ready habit of dressing for success!  Join in with your fellow students and teachers and wear your bow tie on Tuesdays!
