Harrison Central School District is a great place to look for education. The best part about Harrison schools is that they offer you guidance through difficult times, there is a strong community, there is academic competitiveness however each student can move comfortably at their own pace. Harrison High School is the school of opportunity because regardless of what a student is interested in they can find an opportunity to get involved in extracurricular activities that appeal to them. The student body is extremely accepting and has days to support LGBTQ rights, raise awareness for illnesses and diseases, and just recently Harrison High School has teamed up with Relay for Life. Every aspect of the Harrison Central School District is balanced out and it is full of opportunities, students must simply reach out and take a risk.

Harrison Central School District is a rather affluent school district with high standards for each and every student. The teachers' were incredibly devoted to their classroom. The student body is somewhat diverse but tend to be very much into "cliques". The overall experience was average. School promotes the athletic program which is high ranking within the state. As a student if you are not an athlete, you tend to be slightly overlooked.
Everyone in the Harrison Central School District is a husky, from the kindergarteners to the seniors. Everyone is challenged in different ways, whether it be through academics, arts or trades. I liked that the teachers had years of experience so they had techniques to teach us effectively. Also, the arts program is absolutely amazing. At Harrison we are truly blessed to have the opportunity to study Dance and perform choreography because other schools do not have the same program. Students strive not only in the classroom, but on stage, through art, and through musical abilities as well. Overall, Harrison is a place where social groups are clearly intact, the academics are challenging yet engaging and every student is pushed to succeed. So, like they say at every Rye vs. Harrison football game, "I believe that we will win," because with the education we receive, we will succeed at life after high school.
