Read what parents are saying about Harbour View Elementary School
My personal experience for many years was amazing. Then, new leadership came into the picture and now the school is going to hell in a handbasket. Complaints to the District are also ineffective. It's a shame that a school that was once such a vibrant place for students to learn and have fun has become a pit of despair. Maybe if enough parents step up and voice their complaints and frustration the District Office and Superintendent will be forced to make some positive changes. Until that happens though....DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE!!! There are too many amazing schools close by that you can send your children to.

Prior to the 2018-2019 school year I would have rated this school as the best of the best! But unfortunately since the new principal I can’t even say this school is worth going to. We still have great teachers but the principal is sinking ship. Spending money on things the school does not need (ex: new Marquis) and getting rid of the things we do (ex: computer lab and field trips).

TRAGIC!!! I can honestly say I am glad to be done with that school and could not and do not recommend anyone sending their child there. Enrollment is on the decline for a reason.

I would rate my experience at this school an A+. The new principal is doing an outstanding job and is a breath of much needed fresh air.

This school is FANTASTIC!! It’s the best it’s ever been and the new principal is exceptional. She listens to her students and the parents. She’s brought so many NEW and GREAT ideas to this school. The comments that were mentioned above are from parents who realize they can’t alway get what they want and do like change. Money doesn’t talk at this school anymore and doesn’t make you better then others. This principal treats every family with dignity and respect, she doesn’t favor anyone more then another. The only “Bullying” going on at this school is from parents who are very narrow minded and want to cause drama. Hopefully they will leave soon and our school will continue being the GREAT school it has been and will always be!!
