Welcome to Griffin Foundation School District

The Griffin Foundation School District is located in Tucson, Arizona; it is a system of schools recognized as an excellent learning institution for students ages 3 through 8th grade. Griffin Foundation schools have been labeled for the majority of the years as a “Performing Plus or Performing” school. This is an indication that we are consistently reaching above or meeting the State Standards for student achievement. Future Investment Middle School this past school year (2016-2017) earned the Arizona Department of Education – Letter Grade “A” (Excellent). The Children Reaching for the Sky elementary school earned the Letter Grade “C”.  Our teachers and staff are truly are making a difference in the academic growth of students.

We set the bar high for our students and expect our students to achieve the highest levels of academic performance that is consistent with their abilities. We accept responsibility for creating an environment that will allow for student growth in a positive conducive learning structure. Kids with a Smile Preschool, Children Reaching for the Sky Elementary School, and Future Investment Middle School are committed to 21st century learning that prepares our students well for what is to come after their PreK-8th grade journey.  Our faculty establishes and prepares students for higher education. We incorporate a dynamic 21st century curriculum taught by highly competent professionals that are held accountable for assessment results that are vital to our students’ academic success. At the Griffin Foundation School District we have zero tolerance for bullying and/or disrespecting other students/educators.

I hope parents and the public will take the time to get to know us better through our Website. There are links throughout these web pages that will take you to other GFSD school sites and educational materials that will be useful to you and your child/children.
