Harrisburg High School Reviews
While at Harrisburg High School, it was generally a fun time as the school was generally good in most aspects. The only downside I can think of is the fact that they dropped any technology-related courses during my time there (2013 - 2017). So if you are planning to do any information technology-related courses, you would have to look into a duel-credit course or look into early entry into a nearby community college.
I currently attend Harrisburg High School. It has been recently renovated and the staff go above and beyond to help their students. There could always be improvements in schools, such as a more renovated track field or more parking space for students.
My experience within the last four years at Harrisburg High School has been all positive. I've had challenging classes with teachers who have taught me how to properly study and learn the information. Along with that, I have had positive teachers and coaches who love their job and want to see me succeed. The school comes together and works hard in each sport, and the clubs are there to support the teams. On the other hand, our school has been in the remodeling and rebuilding stage for the last two years. Students have worked well and been flexible with all the changes with that. I'm proud to have been a student at Harrisburg for the last twelve years of my life and wouldn't have chosen a better group of students to grow up with.
