    "Sorry you didn't have a great experience but your situation is not typical at Harrison. Both of my boys graduated from Harrison. One was in AP classes and the younger had a learning disability. Both had excellent experiences with teachers, programs and staff. As parents we were very involved with the school and received nothing but the greatest of support for both boys. We didn't always agree with everything the teachers said in relation to our son with the disability, but each disagreement was handled with respect. As parents we took active roles in our sons learning experiences. They both were well prepared for college and excelled due in large part to the teaching at Harrison. I know that our experience is far more typical of what Harrison has to offer. Very satisfied parents"

    "I went to Harrison a few years back and had a MILD comprehension disability (along with a terrible GPA) Harrison highschool was nothing but a huge disappointment with helping students. Before graduation the assistant principal was in a meeting with my parents and a few of my teachers and told me and my parents "you're pretty, you can be a flight attendant..you don't have to go to college"...it was the biggest insult to me and my family. (My dad almost ripped right into them bc college is a DEMAND not a choice.) if you're a cheerleader or football player you will be set with the administration and staff because they care more about the sports than the academics. If your child struggles in school they will be "left behind." The only thing I will thank then for is giving me the drive to PROVE THEM wrong. I now have a 4.0, apart of national honors society and deans/presidents list. You should probably avoid this school, spend the extra cash and send your kids to private schools that have goals for kids and want to help the students."

    "Harrison high school is a good school if you have a child who is self-motivated, enjoys learning and is willing to take academically challenging classes. There is a strong emphasis on AP classes and if your child is on this track the quality of teaching is fairly good. If your child is not highly motivated and enjoys school Harrison can be a challenge. Students take only 4 classes per semester and it is a full year of that subject crammed into 18 weeks. Teachers seem to find it difficult to teach all of the material during the 18 weeks and, from what we heard from our children, rarely taught for the entire class period of 1 hour and 50 minutes. The administration seems more concerned about football than education and there is little to indicate that they are invested in making Harrison a great school rather than just coasting along to retirement."

    "This school is not good to transfer to or from unless you can time your move for the summer months. The principal has chosen a 4x4 system - instead of having 8 classes for a full year the students have 4 classes each semester. We wanted to buy a house near the school but we can't because we can't wait until the summer to move."

    "This is a wonderful school for academics, performing arts, and sports! Most students graduate with great GPAs and get into top schools across the country! Harrison is all about their extra-curricular activities! The marching band is well appreciated and loved and gets to experience a lot of once in a life things! All of the E.C. programs strongly enforce the academic requirements to be involved in the programs. The football team is fairly good and has a great support system from the student body. Harrison's baseball team is extremely successful each year, along with the Track and Field team. Also, the drama department is very talented and well funded. The students that graduate from the theater program tend to move on to bigger and better theatrical opportunities! It is an overall wonderful school, and all students are strongly encouraged to be involved in E.C. programs and to challenge themselves with honors and AP courses."
