They celebrate your child at whichever level they are at and see each student as an individual. It is a truly unique school and one that we feel very lucky to be a part of.” - Katie Myers, Parent “I love that Mrs. Heller always asks me what I am interested in and finds fun books and worksheets for me. I am always excited to pick up my new school materials.”
- First Grade Student “I see Griffin Bay as the best type of high school for students like me and many others who need the independence and the opportunities that this system provides.
