I really like that the school has such a friendly atmosphere. All of my teachers as a freshman have been encouraging of learning and wanting to help me do my best. And while they aren’t all warm and fuzzy like in lower grades, they still care and want to help move you towards preparation for college. One thing I do not like about the school is the sports. While there are many options for sports activities, it seems as if sports comes before everything else. In my opinion, school and doctor’s appointments should come first. Overall, I do believe Harrison is a really good school to be at!

I have absolutely loved my time at Harrison! The school is dedicated to academic and athletic excellence and it shows through and through. Students are always willing to support their friends and classmates at sporting events, which creates a very connected student body. There are clubs for every interest, and if you can't find what you're looking for then there is an abundance of teachers that would be willing to sponsor the club and help you feel more connected to the school.
Harrison High School is overall a very well-rounded educational institution that offers students the ability to excel academically, socially, and in their sports/music programs. The teachers go above and beyond to ensure that their students will be successful as they go onto new and more challenging courses and eventually into college. A majority of the students who attend challenge themselves by taking rigorous courses through the vast array of AP and Honors classes offered. Students also have the opportunity to help the community around them through a variety of community service programs such as Key Club and Beta Club. Overall, Harrison prepares students for success while building upon their talents and sense of community.
