Enforcing Strict Filtering on Google

Hello, I work for a small school district, and our students have been able to use inappropriate words in their search terms to access adult contact on google images. We have made it so that they cannot change their preferences to disable the safe search. However, it only works to an extent. Google does offer a higher level of filtering, called Strict filtering. Is there a way that I can FORCE the strict filtering to be used for all of our students?? We tried duplicating cookies and such with no luck.

If your school uses some sort of proxy caching (such as Squid http://www.squid-cache.org/), it's possible to grab every web-request for Google and tack the "&safe=active" command onto every URL passed to Google. This site:
http://www.granths.com.au/edwiki/index.php?title=Google_Safe_search_redirector
has more information on the actual script you would use, if your site uses squid. If you do not, I would investigate whether you have some sort of proxy between you and the internet and talk to whoever is in charge of that and ask for such a script to be put on the device. Apparently squid is easy to set up, so if you have a spare machine lying around you could cobble this together yourself.
