  • Robyn Griffiths Robyn Griffiths
    Vice Principal

    Although Robyn Griffiths, Grant's Vice Principal of Student Services, grew up in upstate NY, she has called Northeast Portland home for almost two decades.  After receiving her Master's degree in Fictions of Conflict from the University of York in the UK, Robyn entered the classroom as an English teacher with a strong advocacy for teaching from a variety of multiple perspectives.  Robyn joined us at Grant in 2020 after her tenure at Benson as a Dean of Students.  Being a Grant General is in Griffiths' blood, as her one of her daughters is a Grant graduate.  Robyn is an avid world traveler, but has rediscovered the grandeur and beauty of the Pacific Northwest these past few years.

  • Steven BensonSteven Benson
    Vice Principal

    Steven Benson grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan and attended the University of Michigan for his undergraduate studies (go blue!). Immediately after college, Steven moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma to begin his teaching journey. In Oklahoma, he primarily taught high school. While in Tulsa, Steven received his M.Ed. in Administration, Curriculum, and Supervision from the University of Oklahoma (boomer sooner!). In 2016, Steven decided to move back to his hometown and work for the Detroit Public Schools Community District. His biggest accomplishment was the creation and implementation of a K-12 independent reading initiative called Rise Up, Read More, which is still thriving in the district to this day. Steven is extremely excited for this new chapter in his life in Portland and at Grant High School. He cannot wait to immerse himself in the Grant community and to build on the amazing work of the leaders before him.
