What Makes Us Special

Located in historic downtown Tucson, Safford offers quality inquiry-based education for students in grades K-8. Our students learn through global contexts and world concepts, exploring big ideas to find solutions for real-world problems. Through our learning activities, we ask students to examine the world and consider what they can do to make it a better place.

At Safford K-8 we are developing active, inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring lifelong learners who help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

Safford K-8, Learning to be Great!
