Harrison is a great school with wonderful faculty! Some teachers encourage you to do your very best and inspire you to do great things. Other teachers might not seem as concerned or invested, but they're all still amazing. Personally, I wasn't active in sports or clubs, but there are more than enough opportunities to join in (there's even an anime club!) I did participate in theater, and that was a beautiful experience. I do wish, however, that they would discipline students better - I think it would actually help students prepare even better for their next step after Harrison. Also, I believe it would encourage a more academically focused environment. Overall, Harrison gets the job done, and if you're lucky, you'll get some absolutely talented and caring teachers.

At Harrison High School, there is a lot of diversity. We have so many students from different countries that have come here to finish their high school education. The diversity in our school makes us special. We as students haven taken upon ourselves to show leadership in the school which has shown in the years I have attended Harrison. The staff at Harrison are amazing at showing their support in our education.
I love the student body at William Henry Harrison High School. Everyone is so friendly there, and it is extremely easy to make new friends. There are also numerous way a student can get involved in different clubs or activities which I believe is an amazing opportunity. Sometimes I wish the school did not have such a strict dress code, but other than that this school is a fantastic high school!
