My experience at Harding was great. I loved the outgoing friends and teachers at school. Everyone was like a family, whenever we need help or we're struggling in one thing, everyone comes in together as a family to help one another. Harding is a great school and there are many great people at school. I love how the counselors at Harding fulfills the needs you want, which is amazing. In general, my experience at Harding was great. What I like about Harding was the academics. I loved the academics at Harding and I just couldn't get enough of it. What I want to see a change at Harding is racialism. There are some points when there are people who doesn't respect the religious culture people has. At one point, I believe that soon there will be a change at Harding High School and soon enough students and teachers will be able to stand up for their rights.

Harding Senior High School was an okay school. There are people with a great sense of leadership and talent. However, some are delinquent students. There is room to improve and that includes stricter rules, new staff members patrolling the hallways, and the library. The library is constantly loud and never quiet. People tend to talk too loud, eat food and leave crumbs everywhere, and disrespectful at times. As a community, there isn't much initiation and engagement among people for the better good.
Harding is very friendly and has amazing teachers. Although class room sizes are big, the classmates make up for it! Great curriculum that challenges you, and student involvement is a huge thing that makes Harding special. We have tons of clubs and events for students.
