Harding Charter Preparatory High School Reviews

Overhyped. The administration only cares about test scores, and they brainwash the students into believing that AP Classes and tests are the only way to be successful in high school and college. Also, many of the students are completely unaware of the many opportunities that their school fails provide that other, less stressful, better funded, and more accessible schools provide. Ex: Concurrent enrollment and VoTech/ Career Centers for High schoolers for free. The student population is diverse, but not so much for the staff population, leaving the students of color feeling discriminated against by the staff. Students who thrive artistically often are overlooked and are not given the same opportunities as the students who thrive academically; due to the fact that they mainly care about the statistics of test scores, college admissions, and being the number one school in the state. This builds the accumulative attitude by most of the staff that anything that is not AP is not relevant.

When I first was accepted into Harding I was absolutely ecstatic! I was ready to experience everything that Harding had to offer. I believed that Harding was the best place for me to make my transition from middle school into high school. Harding welcomed me in with open arms! Although, my freshman year wasn't that great having the support from teachers and administration to press on gave me a lot of hope.
Harding charter Prep in all honesty is a pretty great school. I have attended there from the past 4 years and my experiences are greagreat. I created a strong bond with the teachers and faculty, every student has a chance at this school, many teachers not only care about our lives as students they care about our out of school life. They check in all the time to make sure we have the necessary tools to helps us exceed in life. Education is a 5/5, but the schools appearance could use work. Hopefully our school will soon be funded and can fix classrooms, bathroom and even get new textbooks to improve for the next generation of students!
