The teachers there are amazing! You can tell that the majority of the teachers there have a passion for what they do and want to see their students succeed, although some teachers may be better than others. There are classes that reach out to all levels of people, whether you want to do cp, honors, AP, or IB. The electives are great as well, there are many to choose from and many are sure to find one that suits them best.
Review Harriton Senior High School
Though it's been 19 years since I've graduated, I am sure that Harriton has only gotten better. It has been a Blue Ribbon school since before I attended. The layout when I attended was the original, if not pretty close to, building built in the 40's or 50's. The center open area dubbed the "tombs" - as there were bunkers underground, in case of air raids- was an awesome place to have lunch, play guitar, hackey-sack and do homework. It was where we socialized and built a small community. That was just a bonus...The education I received there was incredible. We take for granted what we have, compared to many inner-city public schools. I was prepared, academically, to apply, be accepted and attend college. The school district was the reason my mother and stepfather moved from Philadelphia into Bala Cynwyd. It was a private-school quality education in a public school.
I didn't always appreciate Harriton when I was younger, but now as a senior I have come to terms with the fact that I actually really love Harriton. Despite the fact that we are amazing at girls tennis, soccer, and a couple other sports, we are not known for sports. While some people would find that unbearable, the whole school has this inside joke and we all laugh about how bad we are at sports. The school spirit is hurt by that but we make up for it in academics. The school is crazy competitive when it comes to academics and the teachers are absolutely amazing. All of them have such a passion for their jobs and their students.
