Read what parents are saying about Safford High School
Kids are vulgar and don't take their education seriously. Every other word I hear in the hallways are vulgar and inappropriate for a school environment. Cell phones are permitted, and it seems that is all the kids want to do. Even in class I see kids flip out their phones and text while the teacher is lecturing! There is absolutely no teacher-student respect, and when a teacher asks them to hand in their phones, they get defensive and refuse, and the teacher backs away! Some of the teachers are also lousy! They don't demand respect from their students and allow the kids to take control of the class. Thus is why the kids are so unruly. The curriculum is not demanding or challenging, and they are happy if you even graduate, barely passing courses. No academic motivation, no honors or AP courses... I was very disappointed at my first day of school. It is like night and day compared with Thatcher. The principal is nice and has a pleasant personality, but needs to take more control of his staff and students. I hope the school will improve their rules and help motivate their students in the future to make this school a better learning environment for the students to enjoy and flourish.

I had the occasion to visit the school during a high school girls soccer game. Even though my wife has allot of family in safford and thatcher area we had never had dealings with the school .Before ,during and after the game I witnessed multiple issues with the derogatory and rude comments from kids and parents alike . The teachers onsite where barely better with how they talked with the visiting parents and kids. The culmination of the night,sadly, was when two 40 something ladies took time to ridicule and embarrass one of the freshman girls making the trip which ,when given the chance to apologize they were rude enough to think they had been insulted by being asked to apologize. Knowing this is a very religious community I was shocked to say the least at the behavior of the kids ,parents,and staff. I can honestly say my daughter will NOT be making the trip to this school ever again and I would quit my job and home school her if my only option was to send her to Safford High .
