Harper Woods Public Schools Reviews

The things I enjoy about Harper Woods are outranked by the things I despise. For some reason they value uniform conformity more than academics. Though they do offer increasingly impressionable classes. Free breakfast, lunch, and dinner are also very appreciated and assured to every student. Furthermore, though there are plenty of capable teachers, the few who seem to always have classes that fail by the majority are not weeded out and reviewed until the problem is rectified. Instead, the children are blamed. Which seems to be the same in every scenario. A good student can be mistreated by a bad teacher and still be blamed. But even more often is the scenario that children are evil, derogatory, belligerent, and plain animalistic. But besides all of this, Harper Woods High school is a pretty good school, because it offers a free, good education the first time around, which is more than a lot of bad schools offer I'm aure.

I've been attending Harper Woods High School since my ninth grade year and I am now a senior. The teachers have great teaching skills. That's never been the problem. The only problem was the class sizes. There would be up to 36 students in each class. That's a major distraction because you have half the class wanting to learn and the other half doesn't, but if you really wanted to understand what was going on you have to go to the teacher one-on-one. Both of you are less distracted right? It was great!
My experience at Harper woods HS did not start off Postive. After Dealing with issues with staff and students, I’ve learned to overcome boundary’s society may put on me. I currently still attend Haper woods HS and I all i can say is that When it’s time for preparing kids for there future, It’s undeniable the efforts the administration will put in too get you where you want to go! I love My a high school with all my heart!!
