Harrisburg High School did not prepare me for the concurrent college curriculum, which was quite a rude awakening. I think most of the teachers are more focused on getting through the curriculum rather than making sure the student comprehend what is being taught. Aside from the mediocre learning experience, HHS does provide many opportunities for juniors and seniors in the higher learning/post-secondary experience. Most students have the ability to take part in vocational programs at local community colleges and attend college courses on these campuses.
Review Harrisburg High School
Harrisburg High School has marked me forever. The teachers are astounding and will go out of their way to make sure you are receiving the education you need to pursue a career. The counselor and principal always have an open door to their offices, ensuring safe and progressive communication. The after school programs are always uplifting, letting students find a place in whatever interest that may be that they cannot find at home. This high school is what molded me into the person I am today.
The attitudes of our teachers vary. There are some teachers that are very compassionate and eager to help a struggling student, but there are still lots who do only what they are required, sometimes less, and squeak by. Some teachers aren't the least bit knowledgeable of the subject they teach, but there are still a few who know nearly everything there is to know about the subject they teach.
