Safety Harbor Middle School 3

This school is very fun. The campus is clean and tidy and the teachers are fun and nice (besides a rare few). The MEGSSS and IMAST programs are very important because they seperate the higher level students from lower-level ones, so they don't get dragged down or forced to do something they already know. Also, the 'one-way hallways' are helpful, because you can get to class easier, without people pushing and shoving from all directions. I've learned a lot going here, but there are still flaws. Mainly, the principal is horrible and strict. She focuses on keeping kids off the grass and trash off the floor, making our school look good instead of improving the academics. It seems like every day we have to "walk to lunch with our teachers" or "get detention for running at a school party" or some other useless thing, for practically no reason. Other than that, I think this school is very good.

I think that safety harbor middle school is a very good school. It makes all students dress properly and appropriate for school like how anything you wear can only be 2 in. Above the knee, no tanks, wearing appropriate shirts also so for especially girls and for the boys no sagging, etc... I like it all except for how they only have four minutes to switch classes they only have 4min. And I think that the principal could be a little less strict. But other then those the school is very serious about being neat and clean. I would recommend this school and also they need to make the students get out earlier cause my daughter keeps coming home around 5 so not happy about that! :)

Our daughter has been at Safety Harbor Middle School since September of this year and we are very pleased with the experience so far. She is in the gifted program. We've been impressed, not only with what she is learning, but with how much she seems to be enjoying the challenge, as well. Fantastic teachers, strong administration...excellent school!

This school is pretty good. It's not overcrowded, the students generally learn at least something useful when they come home, and the test scores are pretty good, too. However, I think that the school keeps hiring teachers who are too young and don't know what they're doing. I don't think the young teachers get much support from the older teachers, because they don't really talk to them and instead make friends among themselves. I also think that the principal focuses too much on things that are unimportant overall, such as keeping students off the grass and forcing students to be led to lunch by their teachers. What she should really focus on is making sure students learn things and score well on tests because they learn things, not having little parties for everyone who wears a Rays shirt on a certain day. I also think it would be nice if they offered gifted language arts and social studies classes, because there are many students that are unchallenged in those subjects. But other than those things, it's good. Also, if it matters, the band and chorus teachers are excellent.

Over all the best middle school around. The older teachers work well with younger ones, good balance of experience and enthusiasm. Wonderful parent support and great guidance counselors.

This school has provided my daughter with an excellent transition from elementary school. The gifted classes are challenging and engaging. But, all of her teachers are challenging and engaging. The principal is strict and no nonsense, but cares about the students and the teachers, which I think creates a safe and comfortable environment. PTA seems to be strong and supportive.
