The school was interesting to attend. They had a lot of the usual stuff other high schools have, but the academics was a bit different. I initially joined the IB program, but it wasn't the great program that they sold me on in middle school. While the work was very challenging, that wasn't why I decided not continue with the program past my sophomore year. I found out that if you go through the whole program, but fail to successfully past diploma earning exams that you don't get a diploma or the up to 30 college credits that comes along with it. Harrison had a lot of sports and athletic activities, but since the school is going to close next year, a lot of kids stop playing sports and the school has merged certain sports with nearby schools.

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.
