    This school has made a huge difference in my child's life. She has gone from not wanting to attend school at all to looking forward to attending every day.

    During my duration at the gifford school I was constantly bullied by the students in 2005 due to acts of a lady counsler a gentleman math teacher at the time a gentleman staff a gentleman english teacher that were very enthusiastic when it came to encouraging bullying at which time in 2005 i was verbally tourmented due to the help those particular people provided the students meaning the info they gave them about my bipolar disorder and other issues also there was a science teacher that violated his act as a role model by pulling me the student from 2005 out of a building so the students could bully me on there behalf. IM 25 NOW ALL I CAN SAY IS 5 OF THOSE PEOPLE ARE GONE MAYBE THERES SOME PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE THERE NOW.

    I attended 7th and 8th in the gifford middle school. This school helped me cope with bullying and social skills. And now im in 9th grade at a technical high school. This is a great school to help kids with their social skills anxiety anger adhd and dealing with bullies. Once you come here and learn how to cope with all these things you can move on and go back to a public school. This school was the best.

    Good teachers Good school Good way to start. I started Gifford at 8 going on years old and ended at 15 back in 1996 and its been the best thing to happen to me. It has changed a lot since I went but it also expanded to newer buildings for kids to learn in. When I started there was a crumbled old greenhouse but they tore it up 2 years later and bam the Fenn Center was built. The fenn center consists of a gym a computer room upstairs a kitchen and a greenhouse to the left so there's 4 things into 1 building. Not to mention my shooting touch was great in that building haha. They didnt even have a gym in 89 they used the loft to play foosball and table games. It has evolved so much there. Their dedication is so good with the students.
