Safety Harbor is a city located in Pinellas County, on the west shore of Tampa Bay. Safety Harbor's history dates back to the 1500's where mineral springs were found by an Indian village. The Indians put their faith in the healing qualities of the spring, a legend that continues today! Water from these ancient springs is used today throughout the famous Safety Harbor Resort & Spa. The city also includes a small Historical Museum on the site of several remaining Native American shell mounds. For such a small town it really has some great history. Safety Harbor's tree-lined streets and appearance are unusual in heavily-urbanized Pinellas County. More than just a historical area, the real estate is beautiful to say the very least. Homes in this city range from waterfront single-family homes, to those set more inland. The price ranges are so widespread, that no matter what your budget, you will be able to find a home that not only suits your lifestyle, but your wallet as well.
There are two public schools within the city: Safety Harbor Elementary School for grades 1–5 and Safety Harbor Middle School (Home of the Seahawks) for grades 6–8. The middle school was rebuilt in 2004 and now has five buildings surrounding a central courtyard, with adjacent sports fields and a regulation track field. As a joint project between the city of Safety Harbor and the school, the field and track facilities are open to the community. As of 2007, Safety Harbor Middle School has an enrollment of 1,370 students.
Safety Harbor Middle School also has award winning MEGSSS (Mathematics Education for Gifted Secondary School Students) and an IMAST (Integrated Math and Science Technologies) programs.
The nearest school for grades 9–12 is Countryside High School in Clearwater.
