Our school was built to be 21st century state-of-the-art facility. The taxpayers of San Diego invested in our school, through school bonds, to build a brand-new Florence Griffith Joyner MicroSociety Magnet School in the historic City Heights neighborhood.
We opened in 2007 with a campus full of special features: a fantastic library, sleek modern design that makes coming to school a pleasure, an exciting playground, enormous grass playing fields and classrooms full of the latest technology.
We take our name from one of the greatest Olympians of modern history, acclaimed track star Florence Griffith Joyner. She quickly sprinted to attention for implementing the MicroSociety School program, a national network of schools that utilize an innovative design in which students create a microcosm of the real world.
Our program attracts students from all over the city into our magnet school. This is because Joyner creates students who are critical thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders.
With the support of the local community and businesses throughout San Diego, Joyner has become a innovative school reshaping the way children learn.
