    "My son didn't get anything he needed from Harriet Gifford as a first grader. The teachers are suppose to go through five books a year to be able for kids to succeed in second grade and they never give homework to first graders smh. With this being said I transferred my son to a new school and he was clueless to what was going on in second grade. I had to put him back into first grade. Now he is very successful and happy about coming home to do homework. My son new school called and asked Harriet Gifford why wasn't he prepared for second like he should have been. They told them they only go through one book a year smh. My child life was also put in danger at Harriet Gifford."

    "This is an excellent public elementary school. Between the time that my older children attended and the more recent years that my younger children were enrolled, the school has made drastic changes in a very positive direction. The principal excells in his involvement in academic areas and extracirricular activities. Many of the teachers are the type of teachers who were 'born to teach'. They care about the students and they make the students actually interested in learning for the sake of learning. There are also activities and funtions throughout the school year that involve parents and really invite parents and students to be a part of the school as a whole. I was somewhat sad to say goodbye to Harriet Gifford School when my youngest two children graduated. It truly was a great experience for them and for me."
