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.

Harriton is a very academic school. Student athlete life is encouraged and almost all the teachers seem well selected. Administration is exceptional at allowing student independence in their school, yet they try to be as diverse and inclusive as possible. Facilities are advanced and well kept, including new turf for the football field, but its safe to say academic achievements are kept higher than sporting achievements. The school, in general, is high quality and welcoming. They certainly make an effort to push the students to achieve and enroll for colleges, which is great, yet it has created an atmosphere of pressure and higher expectations.
My experience at Harriton has been overall a success. I came here from a nearby private school in my junior year that didn't see my potential as a student, but when I arrived at Harriton there was no question of what I was able to do. I was accepted into the International Baccalaureate Program and was immediately thrown into a rigorous, college-level course load. I'm very appreciative of what this school has taught me on an educational and social level, but would like to see better involvement from the counseling staff on applying and paying for college. I feel like I had to endure the entire process by myself and understand this was a similar feeling from my classmates and would like to see a more hands-on process in this aspect.
