    "I agree with the parent comment on June 1. The only thing the school cares about is the leap & i leap scores. These kids study & practice the tests for months. IF THE TEACHERS ARE TEACHING, THE KIDS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO TAKE PRACTICE TESTS.The school is only concerned about their rating. SO SAD, SO VERY SAD."

    "I attended Harahan when I was a child and it was a great school. My kids are now going there and I am less than impressed. My son was tested for adhd and when I went to the asst primcipal and teacher they would not make any accomodatuons because he was not failing. They were more concerned about the ileap scores than his actual grades. The down time that these kids have is also ridiculous. They get yelled at for talking in the cafeteria after eating their 20 minute lunch and the before and aftercare program is like a jail. One of the aftercare personel grabbed my sons are and pulled his ear and now school is over and I still haven't heard back from the principal."

    "Harahan seems like a quality public school so far. My daughter is in Kindergarden and have had great teachers both this year and in PK4. Only issues at this time is that overall test scores seem to be dropping in some areas (GreatSchools ranking was 9 last year, now an 8), and that parents are unable to visit the classroom (new principal's rule?). Classes seem to be getting a little too full for my preference. A good percentage of the students seem to not live in the area, and their grandparents address might be used instead of their parents... but I suppose that is probably pretty common at any of the better public schools."

    "I moved to put my daughter into this school because it was ranked an A school and my nephew attended the Pre-K program and enjoyed it. Last year my daughter was in kindergarten and so far I have found that there is much to be desired in terms of communication from the school/teacher. I would ask to meet with the teacher and get ignored and questions regarding my child were often met with snippy answers. I also found that there is a serious lack of diversity inclusion at this school. There was no real focus or discussion of Black History Month but my daughter came home with bundles of things for St. Patrick's Day. For kindergarten and first grade, parents do not even have the option to buy their own supplies for the children. There is no list, only a fee of $45 due on the first day of school. I do really like that there is Before/After Care on site and it is relatively inexpensive."
