Harnett County Schools has an average system. They all care for the well being of the students however, they need to work on the education system. Administration in my school in particular is more concerned in students walking in certain hallways and have them blocked than students actually doing well in class. As long as they make it to class on time, which they have, they should not worry about how students get to class where there are students failing because they have a teacher who does not know how to have control. There are those kinds of teachers and then there are teachers that get a little to close with the students.. Harnett County Schools have good clubs and have many students involved, but the way staff handles the students and how they are educated needs to be revised..
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.
