We know that Castela lives in Minneapolis, but we don't know for sure where Griffon is . . . given the way they pop through gates, Griffon could be in Japan too.

True, although we never got the vibe that it was. But that does not prove it is not.

I have to admit, though, that I personally always thought Griffon High was, indeed, in Minneapolis, and that the girls used the portals merely to not alarm anyone who would have seen them on their way to school, particularly before Castela was able to hold her human form (or those times when Atsali had difficulty controlling her paranormal attributes, like her wings or her tail...)

Well, Berdine said that she and Nadette had transferred to Gryphon from "out west", and Berdine also said she'd heard that the new Fae kid (Calista) was from "back east". Calista has a rather pronounced New York accent and was apparently a fan of "(her) New York style pizza" according to what she must have told Krystle.

All of that suggests to me that Gryphon itself is located somewhere in the middle of the country, east of out west and west of back east. As you say, it's not proof, but it feels like Occam's Razor to me.

(This doesn't explain how Cricket ever got ahold of decent New York style pizza, though. She's a rich kid, literally a princess, from a rich and influential Wall Street Fae family. There are no decent pizza parlors on Wall Street, land of the vested interests. Yeast is yeast, and vest is vest, and never the twain shall meet).

Influential Wall Street types have concierges that can get anything.

Today you sit around the television and get the verbal narrative from the village idiot. So things haven't changed all that much.

sending the pun vault a tent-caterpillar nest picked clean of its original inhabitants and converted into a bird nest. (Yes, I really saw this happen.)

Dave: Just because her family lived on Wall Street (or had some influence there) doesn't mean they (or whoever they sent to get it) couldn't leave Wall Street, or that the pizza places wouldn't deliver to Wall Street.

Unless, of course, there's some rule in New York that you can't have pizza in certain areas of the city. In which case, I won't go to New York, ever. (Not that that was likely; I never had a reason to go...)
There is no such thing as a science experiment gone wrong.
