I just started J.C. Harmon this year as a freshman & I think it is a fine school to go to. Harmon is not a bad school. Students have just gave this school a very bad reputation. As long as you do the right thing you won't have problem :)

It is a normal high school with it's fair share of bad apples just like any other high school. Students there try ...  Read more
