We love Harbison West. The principal is wonderful and stresses excellence in the school and with the teachers. The school communicates well and provides lots of extras throughout the year. I don’t know how they fit so much in and am constantly amazed by the fun learning activities. My child is in the gifted program there and the teachers are amazing. Last year they practiced math skills by building gingerbread houses, measuring and cutting and designing. The teachers are very involved and go the extra mile. We really love the school.

You will not find teachers who care more about their students at any other school. As a parent of a student who was in 4K, I was amazed at how loved and supported my child felt every day. She is entering Kindergarten more prepared than I could have imagined. This school is accepting and inclusive to all students.
My child attended 4K here. Overall it was a good experience. They have lots of events for the children to enjoy throughout the school year with fellow students. I love how active PTO and SIC both are with improving the school and addressing/resolving issues. PTO and SIC are fantastic here and really add to the ranking of the school. There will be issues at any school but the priority is to have an effective system/methods to address and resolve the issues as well as a plan and timeline to put those resolutions in action.
