My experience at J C Harmon was very good. They really care at Harmon. It's a very diverse school with plenty of culture from all over the world. The teachers are amazing. They really care. They would go out of their way to make sure you understand and ready for future classes. Harmon provides many opportunities for college. There are a lot of clubs but not really enough for everybody. Sports haven't been that good, not very good teams but they try. The food is average but enough to get through the day. Overall, Harmon is a very fun and great experience. The people are nice and will help you. The teachers are amazing and will always be willing to help you with anything. Harmon is overall a great experience for high school.

I've performed exceptionally while at J.C. Harmon. Curriculum isn't very strong but there's an option to enroll into college classes and accumulate college credits while still in high school. Absolutely for free. One thing I'd like to see change at Harmon is the atitude certain teachers have towards students that neglect school. Them allowing this is totally unacceptable.
At J C Harmon High I liked how our school offers their students many opportunity to take college programs and tech program for the many upper class man, who are done with all their require classes to start working on getting college credit. What i would change about Harmon is more help for the foreign student who come to are school that don't really understand what to do in class and end up failing.
