Harriton was an incredibly academically competitive school with a beautiful campus and amazing teachers and resources! The competitiveness is just because everyone expects the best from you and wants you to excel to the best of your abilities. There are a million clubs, sports, and activities to join into as well. The people are always willing to help and the teachers are genuinely some of the best I have ever had in my life. They are willing to help you out academically, socially, and mentally and emotionally.

I just graduated from Harriton, and am now in college and can say that Harriton definitely prepared me for college. In some of my University classes, I think Harriton may have been more difficult. This school is so supportive and dedicated that each student succeeds, and the student-body, at least my year, was incredibly supportive and positive. Lunch and learn is also the best thing that would make me choose this school over others just through this program. The arts program here is amazing, and the teachers (especially STEM) are incredibly qualified. The classes are tough, but they prepare you for college, which is something that not all of my college peers can attest to with their own high school experiences.
As a 2018 graduate of Harriton High School, I feel my experience there was between average or slightly above average and , as a result, I took time off to be homeschooled. There are clubs for everyone, sports overall are pretty good, and the academics are very good. Some teachers are flexible if you have difficulty with the material or if you have a learning disability such as myself.However, as an African-American, I was a minority at the school and the diversity is a major downside. There is, of course, a mixture of races/culture with students and teachers, but the majority is Caucasian and the school does its best at inclusion with certain classes such as Power, which is a class that is catered towards minorities such as African-Americans and Hispanics. However, even with classes like that, there is still a racial stigma among the school and the district. I would recommend the school academically, but in terms of diversity, there could be a major improvement.
