Principal's Message

Greetings Griffith STEAM Magnet Family,

Griffith STEAM Magnet is one of the highest performing middle schools in East Los Angeles. Our students perform because we hold high expectations for our teachers, staff and the parents of the 1500 plus students who come through our doors each day.

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. 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.

I believe that Griffith STEAM Magnet Middle School is one of many gems in our wonderful community and in 2019-2020 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,
