Principal's Message

Greetings Griffith STEAM Magnet Family,

I am proud to introduce myself as the new Principal of Griffith STEAM Magnet Middle School. Griffith STEAM Magnet has fostered a tradition of success with a record of academic excellence for students of diverse backgrounds from all over Los Angeles. Griffith STEAM carries the responsibility of not only keeping up with educational innovation but also creating innovations. As the new Principal of Griffith STEAM Magnet Middle School, I take this responsibility seriously. As an educator, I am driven by the idea that a good education is basic human right and that our job is to ensure schools work to help every student reach the full measure of their potential.

The mission of Griffith STEAM Magnet Middle School is to work in partnership with parents and the community, to foster the social, personal, and academic development of students so they may become productive individuals who respect diversity, demonstrate civic responsibility, and value life-long learning. And we achieve this by offering a STEAM program that exposes every student to an academic pathway in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. This year, we offer classes and programs that include the Dual Language Program, Theatre, Opera, Dance, Culinary Arts, Robotics, MESA, Coding, and Accelerated Mathematics in order to ensure that every student develops substantial competencies in any area of their choice, meeting our STEAM mandate.

At Griffith STEAM Magnet we hold our staff, teachers, parents, guardians and our students to the highest expectations. We believe that Griffith STEAM Magnet Middle School is one of many gems in our wonderful community and this year I propose that we continue to advance student performance to new highs and enrich the educational experiences of all students. It is my privilege to work with you on this endeavor.



Dr. Gregorio Verbera,
