Harrisburg School District Reviews
The Harrisburg Elementary experience is very poor compared to the experience of Meadowview Elementary in Eugene, Or. I went from being in advanced classes to not having the option of being advanced. The district is known to struggle with keeping teachers to continue to stay in those positions since the school is one of the districts that doesn't pay teachers decently. The High School doesn't offer many Advanced Placement or IB classes. The school also doesn't prepare students well with information about how college class workloads may be or how student loans work. When I went to the guidance counselor to seek help with scholarships or how to apply to financial aid, she was very limited in knowledge.
It’s a small town school, everyone knows everyone. Everyone is nice and simple. You get to go to school and you know everyone. The classes are fun and engaging. The people are nice and caring. You always feel welcomed no matter what
I loved Harrisburg High School. It was perfect for me because I love small schools. I really like knowing every person I am going to school with. Because it is a small school, it is not as easy to challenge those who want to be challenged. Overall, Harrisburg High School prepares the kids that want to go to a four year university for college life. However, most graduates enter the workforce, military, or attend a two year community college.
