Harper Creek Community Schools Reviews

I switched to Harper Creek community schools in 8th grade. The change was sudden and challenging but I made it work. I enjoy many of the teachers and their willingness to help me thrive. If I could change anything I would start with the demographics. Although the school cannot change who attends the school, they could change how the people they treat that do. The school I attend is mostly white and I think the diversity would really light up the school and help it become brighter and give students most experience with different cultures and backgrounds students come from. I think this will help them a lot in the real world. Another thing I would change is the student teacher interaction. Making it a team, collective effort rather than forceful meaningless one. I think this could be carried out simply by asking students what they need to better learn and thrive in the school/ classroom.

Harper Creek is a growing school district. There are awesome teachers at every school - willing to go out of their ways to make sure students are getting the best experience and education they can. Harper Creek hires the best teachers available. The sense of community of this school district is also incredible. People go out of their way to help their fellow peers. The number of clubs and student organizations were also superb, and student involvement was just incredible. The district is also doing a great job at keeping their students safe - they've implemented state of the art door locks to use in case of school intruders. Additionally, they have police officers in every school in the district and I always felt safer with the officers around. I'd love to see there be a more diverse availability of advanced courses for students. This would push the district to being one of the best in the area.
Generally speaking, I like the teachers there. They're kind and look forward to helping students. Harper Creek has 5 AP classes to get you prepared for college. With the help of those classes and the teachers, anyone can be successful in high school. Something I would like to change about Harper Creek are the resource availability. We do have a library but the books in there don't really have helpful information.
