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.

My son as well as many of his friends flourished at Harriton.
The school was welcoming and made sure incoming freshman had buddies and resources to help them navigate the transition from a very small middle school with a graduating class of 13 to a
school with over 1200 students. Many of the teachers were extremely dedicated, devoting incredible amount of personal time and resources to helping students after hours creating power house science teams, a student-led writing center and outstanding theater productions. There are also many educational seminars to help make post high-school choices. I am very impressed with how Harriton has expressed a standard of public school excellence that I hope will be maintained for years to come.
Harriton High School has prepared me extremely well for college. I have been challenged in the Honors and AP courses I have taken over the four years I attended and will graduate with a 3.81 GPA. As I prepare to graduate this June, I am excited about my future career in percussion jazz performance and film scoring. A scholarship will be extremely helpful in financing my college experience. Both of my parents have chosen public service for their careers. While they could be earning a good deal more money, they have chosen to serve those in need and whose rights have been violated. I have the utmost respect for them and the values in which they believe. Thank you for considering me for this scholarship. Sincerely, Aidan Todd, Harriton HS Class of 2019.
