We feel that there is no better way to convey the culture of The Gifford School than through the words and experiences of our parents and guardians, students, and staff.

The following excerpt is from a speech given by a parent at Gifford's 2020 Graduation & Closing Ceremony, which was live-streamed to our community members who couldn't attend due to restrictions on the size of gatherings.

Good morning, families, staff, and students. My name is Jennifer Luongo, and I am Anthony's mom. It is an honor to speak to you all this morning and represent the parents of our graduating class. We have been members of the Gifford community since 2014. How do you thank a school and its staff for making your child feel understood, cared for, and important? This school changed not only our son's life but our family's as well. This school allowed us to breathe.  All of our paths to Gifford are unique and every family has a story of how they ended up here.
