Harrisburg School District Reviews
I enjoyed the school's overall environment, and the teacher's are amazing (though it is personal preference). They offer many clubs and activities for extracurriculars. They do a decent job transitioning through elementary to middle school and to highschool. They also offer a variety of chances for volunteer work for older students and internships as well as being peer editors.
The Harrisburg School District is a very generous and proactive district. They have implemented a new "customized learning" option in the high school that allows students to complete coursework with flexibly in pacing, learning ability, and difficulty of coursework. While some criticize the school for the amount of freedoms and difficulties in communication that this program has had, many praise it for the opportunities it has provided students who want to reach their full potential. Overall, my experience with the Harrisburg School District has been a very positive one with an incredibly helpful and comforting staff and an innovation in how high schools are run.
Harrisburg is a great school district to be apart of. I have spent my whole elementary, middle, and high school career in this district and I have loved every part of it. It allows for a small town school feel while still being a large school. The community is amazing and is always around to help people. Every teacher i've had throughout the entirety of my education has been amazing and has helped me in countless ways.
