    "Academic departments will collaborate and work together in one subject so the students receive a deep learning of the curriculum."

    "We have two children at Harker, both in lower school. Our fifth grader has been here since grade 2, our second grader started in Kindergarten, and we are constantly amazed at the level of support teachers provide to students, both academically and emotionally, in terms of character building. When our fifth grader has struggled with academics, teachers reached out to us with concrete advice, invitations to come to extra help in the morning and other suggestions for helping him thrive --and he has done so! Along with kind, calm, sensible *intelligent and thoughtful* teachers who brigh their humanity to the classroom, there is a lower school-wide program that helps students understand their emotions at times of frustration to help them understand how to deal with their concerns effectively. The after school care staff is incredibly polite, attentive and sharp, I've never had any concerns about playground misbehavior as the staff are super vigilant and the equipment is top-notch and well maintained. The kitchen is outstanding and provides healthy snacks (included) before and after school, and students can choose to have a nutritious school lunch prepared on site, or bring their own food from home. Just a great experience all around!"

    "This is school has a great academic program, but outside of the classroom there are many people who are rude and snobby. Everyone at the school acts like they are princesses and they deserve great things when they are some of the meanest people I have met. There are bullies and Harker puts a facade on itself saying it's a great school without bullying and everyone loves eachother, but in reality many people are rude. There are many people who take drugs, have sex, and there are many people depressed because the school only focuses on academics and having a perfect 4.0 grade."

    "The teachers at Harker are overall fine, but there are always those teachers that are stuck up. One teacher always talks about how she is an adult and how us children don't understand. Their teaching styles are somewhat boring and they don't seem to incorporate entertainment into the lesson, I often find people falling asleep or such."

    "I loved Harker so much; the people are truly amazing. Treasure Harker while you can, because before you know it, you will have graduated, and your time there will be finished."
