Principal's Message


Welcome to Balfour Elementary!  My name is Christopher Tuft, and I am excited to serve as the school’s principal.  

I began my career in education in 2003 after graduating from Grove City College in Grove City, PA.  I am a National Board Certified Teacher, and have my Master of School Administration degree from Western Carolina University.  I spent 12 years teaching third and fourth grades in Guilford and Randolph Counties before coming to Balfour as the assistant principal in 2015.

I live in High Point with my wife, Jennifer, and our four children – Christian, Tyler, Haley, and Benjamin.  We also have a dog named Snowball.  When I’m not at school, I love to read, work in my yard, run marathons, and watch the Steelers play football.

I believe that every child can learn and be successful.  It is our job as educators to work as a team to provide the environment and instruction to ensure that success.  I am proud of the many wonderful things going on at Balfour, and am excited about the many great things that the future hold for us.

Please feel free to contact me at (336) 672-0322 or if you have any questions or concerns.
