    Our son has only been attending Safford for a week but we can already tell that it's a great school!! When our son was selected to attend Safford my husband and I each made multiple visits to the school. As parents who are very motivated to provide our son with the finest possible public education we have always acquainted ourselves with each of his schools their principals and his teachers. We felt it more important than ever in transitioning from elementary to middle school to be well informed about his educational surroundings and we are exceedingly pleased to report that we are very impressed with all that we have seen at Safford!!!! The teachers and administrators provide a truly student centered technologically-up-to-date enriching environment for their students! It is clearly evident that the faculty and staff are deeply committed to creating a community of life long learners at Safford!
