Harrison County School District Reviews

At Harrison Central High, the guidance counselor's need to have schedules ready first day of school instead three days to three weeks later. West Wortham Elementary and Middle is on top, love the teachers and principal there. Harrison Central on other hand needs to tighten up with communication within the school, student and parents

As a former student of Harrison Central High School, I feel that the school can improve on various aspects. First, the office clerks are almost always rude. Secondly the school has an open parking lot that gives trespassers free range of entering the school. Lastly, I didn’t feel as if the counselors were giving me guidance. For example, I was set to take my ACT exam and I needed a student ID. I took my picture for it but I never received it and I missed the exam. The school needs improvement.
It was an all right school district. I would love to see more international languages taught instead of your standard French and Spanish. What if people what to work in China or Japan or Russia or even Germany? More language opportunities are needed! And they need to stop taking away the arts. That is very much important as business is needed too!
