My experience at Harrison High School changed my life. Classes began, syllabus here and syllabus there. Stacks of paper flooding my backpack. The torment seemed endless but it was necessary. As a middle schooler, I was a "good" student, but what I didn't know was that I was NOT ready for the "real world". I made countless friends both from my classmates and my hard-working mentors. AP classes were a nightmare as I treaded through the halls with a 50-pound book in my arms. Yes, the lack of energy prevented me from realizing what I know now: AP classes made my skin thicker and my mind stronger. My confidence rose as 3's changed to 4's in AP exams. Mrs. Spice: my counselor, helped me oh so much. I was aided in many aspects, extending from academics to emotional issues. So in the end, the seamless neverending syllabi and the dreadfull hours spent at 11 pm studying paid off for I changed from a dependent, lonely person to an independent and hardworking individual.

My experience in High School was overall good but the school is in the middle of switching in between programs and becoming an IB school causing some of the programs I was in to fall, however in the future as things progress and the school encounters a new refurnished building and the advancement of the IB program its going to be an outstanding school in District 2 and for that community. As the school is diverse and helps the community out in serval many ways.
I've always been a student who has attended a Harrison School District 2 school throughout all my years. I can say that it has made the learning environment what it should be. Looking back i can say that i have been highly satisfied with my entire school experience within HSD2. The consensus within this school district is the poor conditions within the schools when it comes to classroom conditions, bathroom conditions, the temperatures within the school. Those little things have been somewhat of a problem all my years but with the new bill that was passed that will make for taxes to go into improving school buildings. It's a good start for improving schools within the district fro future students. I may not have gotten to experience it but it's good that others will get a better experience.
