I really enjoyed my experience at Harrison High School. I always felt like I had the opportunity to challenge myself and work with the teachers whenever I need them to get help. Also for me the student body environment was really great, I’ve met so many different people from all over the world and I am going to cherish these friendships for a long time. Academically, the IB Diploma gives students the opportunity to take extremely challenging courses that many other schools around us don’t have. Also, since we are such a diverse school, the IB Diploma is great because people who want to go to college after high school have a super high level of academics that is globally recognized. Overall, I loved being a part of the Harrison High School community.

Harrison high school has extremely difficult classes, but passing these classes will look very impressive to colleges. Students at Harrison have the ability to apply for an IB diploma, which will help them in their college applications. It seems that the administrators care more about English and History classes rather than Math and Science classes. The teachers don't offer a lot of support for their students which can make classes and work overwhelming. The administration and staff do not take claims of discrimination, such as racism and homophobia, seriously. It seems as though the wealthier students don't get as harsh of punishments as others. There are multiple school psychologists working everyday, most likely due to the large amount of students who can't handle the massive amounts of stress that Harrison puts on their students.
I think that the quality of the teachers at Harrison High School are the driving force of its excellence. There are most definitely some undesirable aspects of the school, but I think that the superb quality of the teachers overrule that entirely. Aspects of the school such as the administration appearing to lack understanding of the students along with how the school budgets its construction projects disproportionately are important to think about when considering a student's livelihood at Harrison High School. With all that being said, I believe that the quality of the educators present possess the power for students to propel themselves towards their personally individualized outcomes regarding what it is that they'd like to get out of high school.
