My experience with a Harnett County school was on of the best I could say. They offer many opportunities for clubs, sports, or any extra curricular activities. The school board also offers classes in which you would basically work to find out if you are truly wanting to go into the field in which they offer. The schools also are up to date with seniors and juniors and preparing them for college applications and also for getting into college. I would recommend Harnett county for anyone.

The high schools in Harnett County aren't the best, and they don't prepare you for college. Campbell is a great college and I love it!
Harnett County schools need better teachers and more college preparatory programs. Harnett county schools need more variety of sports and have equal funding for all sports not just football and cheerleading. Harnett county schools do not provide enough programs to get students ready for college because college is nothing like high school. The students need to know more about how many scholarships are out there and get help with applying to the right college.
