The school district has made a lot of changes in the last 5 years. Attendance is up, APs are way up, acceptances to colleges, including all Ivys is up. The IB program will start in the fall 2011.

If you read Walt Whitman's definition of how to teach a well rounded student, you will not find the answer in the Harrison School System.

While it recently had some hiring problems, a new and innovative group of teacher have been hired and have filled the gap beautifully. Music and arts programs are thriving and the humanities have gotten an overhaul. My son has been served very well, and always felt safe and welcome. Great School.
