Ayden-Grifton High School Reviews

My son recently graduated and he is planning on attending college after a year considering other options, military, work or help at his family's farm. While a student, he became interested in both Drama and Orchestra and had great mentors with both programs. He did well on his SAT's and placed out of the classes required to start on college credit courses. The fact that a school is not in a affluent suburb, near a major city with teacher salaries well above average, is no indication of the quality of one's education.

Ayden Grifton has a great counseling department and has set strong academic goals for students. I would change how some of the clubs are set up and executed, but the activities include all students.
The teaching staff at Ayden Grifton High School are well prepared and ready for class. Lessons are well thought our and thorough. The staff are available to assist students if they have questions, whether it's in the actual classroom or a scheduled time, convenient for both the teacher and student. I, truly, believe the staff at Ayden Grifton care about the students. They are aware if a student is having an "off" day and will intervene by checking on them. They work with students who may need extra work assignments or tutoring if the student is behind. Overall, my experience with the teaching staff at Ayden Grifton High School has been a very positive experience.
