I enjoyed my time at Harrisburg Christian School. My teachers were awesome and they really work to develop good relationships with their students and make it known that they are there to help, not only in academics but in any spiritual counseling as well. The sports at HCS are outstanding as well as the visual and fine arts. Many championships were won in my time at HCS. They also put on quite the show in the spring musical every year. Also, at Harrisburg Christian, children will develop life long friendships with classmates.

Although I loved the teachers and enjoyed the academics, there are no clubs available for students to partake in. The student body is overall made up of apathetic students who complains about everything and are either non-Christians kids or kids with shallow faiths. If you’re looking for a school with a Christian atmosphere, this would not be the school for you. Calling this school a “Christian” school is by far nothing from the truth due to the secular atmosphere from the student body, although, the teachers are Christians, and I find majority of them are hard working and love the students. The academics are fantastic, and I have found myself being pushed academically to reach new heights I thought were impossible.
I would like to see the academics particularly in the math department be improved. Additionally, the spiritual climate seemed very apathetic and I was not challenged spiritually. However, I loved the most of the faculty and had the opportunity to ask questions and have one on one time because of the student to teacher ratio. I also had a great time being on the sports teams while I attended this school. Overall, what made my high school experience good was the relationships I had with my friends and teachers.
