I went through all twelve years at Harding County School and for a small school they try to give us a variety of classes in high school. They offered IED, mobile units and Latin. I really enjoyed Latin for 3 years. I had some excellent teachers, they had tons of knowledge in their areas. our teachers really care about teaching and making sure the student know what they were taught.
We have a great sports program where every student is piratically involved in a sport or activity and most of the people are accepting and friendly. Harding county is fun and yet we are serious though we are a smaller school we are great academically and have state titles
