I first moved to Haralson County High my junior year. I was nervous, because who isn't on their first day to a new school. I am a senior now and i absolutely love Haralson County HIgh. This school drives their students to be active in some form of school activity whether it is. The administration is great, they handle every and any kind of situation fantastically. The current principal, Benji Cole, has done a tremendous job on bringing Haralson County from a 2-star school up to a 5-star school. The graduation is the highest, at about 95%, it has ever been. This school is absolutely amazing and I would definitely want my children to go here.

As an alumni of Haralson County High School I believe it was a very good school. Many of the staff was there to help the students whenever it was needed and there is a variety of academics offered. The extra curricular activities vary as well. Aspects that could be improved would be better quality appliances and more student involvement with events and engaging activities.
One of my favorite things about Haralson County High School has been the teachers. So many are so enthusiastic about their job and you can tell they actually care about their students. They are by far the best thing about the school. The school has excellent programs in Fine Arts, especially within the band and drama department. I'd love to see the administrators care as much as the teachers do and help the students out more when they come to them with a problem.
