Gifford School

Largest 4K-8 campus with the Planetarium and unique art programs.

With a mission to prepare students for the future, the Gifford staff works daily to prepare children to reach their potential and beyond in their newly renovated K-8 building. 


The Planetarium inside Gifford is used to provide the most current trends in astronomy and space exploration to the District’s students.


Artist in Residence is a PTA-funded program exclusively for 3rd graders. An artist works with students on an art project that becomes part of the collection at Gifford.


The Gifford reading program includes two active and supportive Reading Dog Therapy Teams. Research supports that reading aloud to dogs can help reluctant students become confident and motivated readers.


Gifford Big Buddies Program pairs older students with younger learners, who benefit from shared activities, mentoring and encouragement.


Gifford School offers intramurals including: boys and girls basketball, volleyball, track and cross country as well as band and choir.
