Gifford Park’s priority goals are: Creating a safe and welcoming family, student, and community-centered environment that meets the social-emotional and academic needs of EACH child EVERY day! We believe in the importance of high expectations for achievement, excellent attendance for staff and students, consistency with building-wide procedures and routines, and in the importance of building relationships and creating engaging and rigorous lessons that result in every child wanting to be at school every day! We celebrate the diversity of our student population with over 14 languages spoken at Gifford Park. Our Gifford Park Groundhogs are everyone’s children and students, as it truly takes a village to help every child excel to their highest ability!
