Harrison is a great school! The teachers and staff their do their best to help support and aspire the students. Their are many clubs and organizations for students to join like SkillsUSA, beta club, girls who code, and many more. Along with great sports teams, such as their football state champions, softball, and basketball. Of course just like every school, there are changes students want to change like later class times, but overall the time you are here at as a Harrison Hoya, you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

The experience I had during my high school years were not terrible. High School, depending on each individual may very. The school in which I attended, took steps to consider most students needs and concerns. For any business, corporation, or faculty managed building it is impossible to make every person in correlation of such. But Harrison with amazing efforts succeeded in making their school academically, friendly, safe, and clean learning environment. There's always will be small outliers that break these small surroundings, but what Harrison High accomplished exceptionally well on was going forth and addressing such situations. They kept them friendly-faced, with concerns of both students, faculty and parent. Overall to conclude the Cobb County School is an excellent high school with great academics and students and teachers that follow.
I honestly really like going to school here! The teachers are overall really helpful, and if you can get your work done in class, there is usually very little homework. The only thing I would want to change is the class size, which can be pretty large: about 30 kids in one room.
