i spent over 10,000.00 for private schools for my daughter before she entered 1st. grade. she spent 1st grade thru 5th grade at harrison elementary. I love the dedication of her teachers and the school as a whole. this was when mr. green was the principle. i have talked to teachers from other schools who try to get a job at harrison because it is ranked very high in iowa because of the iowa test scores. i have also talked to teachers who teach at assumption high school and they can easily tell which students went to john f. kennedy school. my opinion. if you can afford the education go and check out j.f.k. and continue on to assumption high school. also look into rivermont collegiate as one of the best in the area. my daughter is 12 and she still remembers the great experience she had at rivermont pre school.
