Welcome to Griffin Foundation School District

The Griffin Foundation School District is located in Tucson, Arizona; a system of schools recognized as an excellent institution of education to enhance learning for our community’s children. Our schools have been labeled “Performing Plus or Performing” since the existence of our school district in 2001 by the Arizona Department of Education, an indication that we consistently reach above average levels of student achievement. We expect our students to achieve the highest levels of academic performance, consistent with their abilities, and we accept responsibility for creating an environment that will allow this to happen.Kids with a Smile Preschool, Children Reaching for the Sky Elementary School, and Future Investment Middle School are committed to a 21st century learning agenda that prepares our students well for what comes after their PreK-8 grade journey that establishes and prepares them for higher education. We believe that a dynamic 21st century curriculum taught by highly competent professionals who are held accountable for learning results is vital to our students’ academic success.

I hope parents and the public will take the time to get to know us better through our Websites. There are links throughout these web pages that will take you to other GFSD school sites, in addition to video and audio clips of our students, staff, and parents whose images and voices tell our educational journey.
