• Greetings:
     
    We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit the Griffith High School website. Griffith High School is a school of approximately 780 students in Grades 9-12 with a faculty and staff of over 70. We are extremely proud of our school, students, staff and community. Our collaborative commitment to excellence in student achievement has fostered increases in our graduation rate and pass rates on the End of-Course Assessments, along with increased pass rates by our students on the various Advanced Placement Tests, in which they participate.
     
    We offer our students Advanced Placement Courses, Honors Courses, Dual Credit opportunities and CTE Certification Courses through both GHS and the Hammond Area Career Center. Additionally, we are constantly striving to increase the number of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities for our students to ensure that we are providing them with the best educational experience possible.
     
    GHS is a remarkable place to spend four years learning and growing. Although the faces have changed over time among students and staff, the constant factors that have withstood the test of time has been the Griffith Panther tradition of excellence and commitment to represent our community with pride. We continually strive to prepare every student to have an array of viable options, available to them, at the conclusion of their career at GHS by doing “Whatever it Takes”.
     
    Our staff is committed to success and we know that as a team we can create an environment that affords our students opportunities to flourish and excel. I wish to thank our staff and community for continuing to be such a positive influence in the lives of so many of our students.
     
    Go Panthers!!!
