Har-Ber High School Reviews

Overall, I have enjoyed my time at Har-Ber High School, but it does have some downfalls. The teachers are very invested in their students education and caring for them as a person. Teachers strive to have a personal connection with their students whether by talking to them about their weekend plans or tutoring them on their assignments. One downfall that Har-Ber has is that when they do any kind of standardized testing, they seemingly shut down the school. What I mean is there is still school, but they have to move people out of their normal classrooms and often times some of those classes get sent to the gym or the cafeteria. When this happens, teachers have little to no control over students and the students aren't learning. Har-Ber does offer challenging classes, but they are lacking in the college readiness department. Students are often left on their own to decide where they want to go to college, writing scholarship essays, and preparing for interviews.

My experience in Har-Ber is like any other public high school. The teachers made sure that work was turned in and would answer any questions that one might have. I didn't join any activities besides track, but everyone was inclusive. There isn't much that sets this school apart from other public high schools in Arkansas. I do wish that I was a bit more involved with my school's activities, maybe my senior year would've been better. The thing that I loved most about my school is the rotunda. This is where they would start our pep rallies, the band, and cheerleaders really knew how to get the student body to show school spirit. Despite the fact that I didn't join many activities, I wouldn't want to change my school for anything. My best memories of the school are the field trips that I would take to the track meets. I loved doing track, meeting new people from other schools. The coaches were helpful and kept things light and fun.
My experience at Har-Ber High School has been so fulfilling and involved. I truly believe that a large part of the experience is up to the student; you have to want to be involved and Har-Ber does a great job of providing many opportunities to do so. It has well-funded facilities and prides itself on investing in student’s lives. Although we are fortunate enough to have respected arts programs (theater, choir, etc.) I would love to see better funding for both, especially when it comes to giving choir students opportunities to travel, as well as helping competitive theatre students pay for national competitions.
