The school has a small number of students so you at least know somebody when you are walking down the hall. There are some awesome teachers at Harding that are worth getting to know that actually care about you and your education. This school is a very accepting place for all. One should not feel out of place at this school. Despite all this there are things to complain about in regards to the school. It needs more funding in general, the cafeteria food sucks most of the time, and some teachers are just not doing the best in their teaching methods. This is not say that they are bad teachers, but their methods are just way off sometimes and need to be reevaluated. Compared to other high schools in Oklahoma, Harding is actually pretty nice.

I am a senior and overall I really like the experience I had/have at this school. The teachers I approach are really nice and they are always willing to help and listen to everyone’s personal problems, you can confide in them without judgment. Being my second year there I’ve learned a lot, I’ve grown, and I’ve learned more about myself and my responsibilities. They have really encouraged me to become someone in life by pushing me to be a better person.
It's a really fun school with some of the best teachers! I give this a "very good" rating because as of the teacher walkout some of our best teachers are leaving because they have families that they have to provide for and the teacher's salary just isn't enough. Every core subject is in some way arts integrated as this is a fine arts school. The students here are so very friendly and welcoming that it's seriously hard to believe that anyone could go without making some friends and/or love interests!
