This school is terrible!!!! It makes me want to kill myself just walking into it! Most of the teachers care about their students but others just downright don't care! It sickens me and all of my colleagues agree. The students are ill behaved and don't know when enough is enough. No home training, lack ...  Read more

Harper Woods is a good school. It may not be the bast at times but we have improved as a school. We follow the I Can system with grading and it is the best grading system. Our teachers can be one on one with students but it does depend who the teacher is. When I first came there I cried because I though ...  Read more

This school is a big disappointment........when I moved to Harper Woods I moved my children from DPS to Harper Woods HS and I wish I had kept them in DPS.

I would not recommend anyone to send there child to the high school. There is always problems at the school and they never get resolved. I had a student at the school and I am glad they do not attend the school anymore. When you need help or need to talk to someone they are never around or make excuses ...  Read more

I'm a graduate of HWHS, and currently attending The University of Michigan. When I first entered UM, it was quite clear that I was well behind my peers even though I graduated with a 3.89 GPA. The school cirriculum does not challenge its students. When they finally offered AP classes it was only for ...  Read more
