The Harvey School Reviews

The Harvey School has exceeded my expectations on all levels. When we first enrolled our older son in eighth grade three years ago, we were looking for a smaller class sizes and an inclusive community. We found that and so much more. We found teachers going the extra mile academically and providing other kinds of support during and after school. We found students who welcome all, and advisors, teachers and administrators who reach out to check in. We found a warm community of parents--and we found lots of opportunities to have fun! Harvey is the real deal, and the school honors it's mission statement of Rigor with Heart on every level. We now have two children at Harvey and couldn't be happier. As a footnote, the transition to e-learning has been seamless, and we are getting tons of support from the Parents' Association, teachers, and administrators. We even have after-school Zoom workouts, game afternoons and parent happy hours. We are so lucky to have found this gem of a school.

The community is great here. There definitely is a sense of warmth and inclusion the minute you step on campus. Due to the smaller class sizes, students are able to receive more hands-on attention from a teacher, if needed. Everyone knows everybody, which makes the highschool experience more personable and enjoyable. A handful of teachers are really great at their job and deeply care about the students, while others are less committed. You just need to find out who. The campus is also beautiful. That being said, there isn't that much school spirit (although that might just be due to the smaller nature of the school). I also wish there was more transparency between admission and the student body. When COVID first began, admission only contacted the parents and left much of the student body out in the dark regarding their plans for the school, which felt a little silly since we're literally highschool students and should be aware of what's happening with our education.
My son has been in Harvey since 6th grade. Harvey is a wonderful school, teachers care greatly about students thriving in all regards. Middle School was a game-changer for my son, he gained great confidence both in his academic and athletic abilities and is now enjoying High School. This past year with COVID the administration, staff, and faculty have all gone above and beyond to create an environment to support the kids and keep the academics strong while being caring and flexible. Teachers take their responsibility very seriously and put a lot of rigor and heart into their job.
