This school is not safe. Read in any paper for details. Some staff seems to have a blind eye. Our daughter went there a few short weeks before we had to put her in another school. Fights and disrespect are rampant. The Harrison students are bullied daily. Look somewhere else, in my opiinion.

Lakeland Senior High School emphasis is placed on their football team, rather then academics. Its passtime its administrators take a different approach and become progressive. As for safety, this is also another concern as there are fights among the students. Sadly, this is happening, and community ...  Read more
