Harding County school is a very good school. We offer great classes for more advanced students as well as the students who need more help.
Bullying is a big issue. The principle and superintendent say they're going to do something about it but they never do. I know because I came to them crying about being bullied and they said they were going to talk to my classmates about it but they never did. Everything else seems to be ok if someone is sick they usually send them home so they don't get anyone else sick.
