Harrison High School, like many others, have numerous pros and cons. The administration and teachers tried their best to prepare us for college and different paths we may go down, and although they made many mistakes they always had their best interest at heart. The life of the school was the football team, and everyone also looked forward to friday night football! It was the highlight of our week!

My experience with Harrison high school, has been very good! I wouldn’t change it for the world, and I’m so sad to see it’s over! My school has taught me a lot, and I couldn’t thank everyone enough.
Harrison High School does not have the best reputation, but is actually a great school. It is a very diverse school, so every group is accepted and has a place in the culture. No one is afraid to embrace their identity at Harrison. There are students who are not in IB as well, creating a broad spectrum of people who are athletic, artistic, musical, and academic. Although the school district lacks money, limiting some resources and leaving teachers underpaid, we still manage to make the best of what we have. As an IB student at Harrison, my experiences with academics have been very positive, as teachers are trained to educate at a higher level, and have a passion for the subject they are teaching. After having the same group of teachers for 4 years, it is easy to build relationships with the teachers, creating a very supportive environment.
