Harper Creek Community Schools Reviews

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.

I loved the teachers here at Harper Creek Community Schools. So many have a true passion for teaching and work very hard to ensure that students are learning and excelling in the classroom. With such limited resources, it’s amazing how much they can accomplish and strive to accomplish. As for things I could change, I would say the diversity. There’s very little at Harper Creek, and what little there is do not have much of a voice in the schools. It would be great to see strides being taken to include more POC and activities and events celebrating them.
I’ve attended Harper Creek ever sense Kindergarten. Growing up in this community is something I never want to take back. Everyone coming together at sporting events showing off their beaver pride, is a feeling that I am lucky enough to have. The teachers here are very nice and they only want the best for their student and they are willing to go out of their way to give the students the help they need. The students, as well, really connect. To me I feel as the class I will be graduating with in 2019 will always have a spot close to my heart. I know they will be the people I see in public years later on and remember them just as if it was yesterday.
