My overall experience at Harrisburg High School has been absolutely phenomenal, and has best prepared me for college. The principle and teachers at Harrisburg High School are passionate for what they do and are dedicated in helping us achieve. I have noticed that my principle and teachers take it upon themselves to check up on their students and provide one-on-one sessions for those struggling. Aside from the learning aspects of school, I love how much of a positive environment Harrisburg High School is. The students and staff are so friendly here and outside visitors are always impressed by how well behaved we are. Attending this school makes me who I am today, and I couldn't have asked to go to a better school or have better teachers!

Harrisburg High School is one of the better schools in the Sioux Falls area. It is relatively new and has great facilities, faculty, and community involvement. Their curriculum is a bit different as they have different pathways to take, but it makes it easy to pick which path is best for you. The school also has substantial support for its activities, whether they be sports, forensics, or fine arts.
Harrisburg has big school opportunities in a relatively small school. The facilities are all very new, but the school culture is very poor. Since it is a small district many kids have known each other for their entire lives. This means that it is hard for new students to fit in and it is even harder to grow as a person when you attend this school. This school district does pay for its students to take college classes in high school which is fantastic and a huge money saver.
