Harbur middle school is the best school around. I would recommend it to anyone, espiecally athletes. Our sports teams have had undefeated sports teams for around 5 years. Harbur middle school is a wonderful school academic wise too. The teachers are amazing and will go out of their way to help a student, including come before school, stay after school, or give them more time on a project. Harbur is a caring community.

I think they have a large range of things kids can study. They have nice teachers and students. Teachers have great fun ways for kids to learn which they enjoy. The children get a choice of what instrument they want to play. The middle school band is known for excellent performences and they have a wonderful teacher Mr. Cramery. Each student takes art class for 6-8 weeks once a year. They learn how to do different creative things. There are always sports going on in Har-Bur. In the beginning of the school year They have cross-country and soccer. Winter they have girls and boys bascketball and girls cheerleading. In spring they have track and field. This school also has a good reputation for sports. All of the classrooms and bathrooms look clean even with the construction going on. There was one think I noticed that I didn't really like. The girls bathroom in the 7th grade wing has been out of order for about 2 or 3 months. Now you only have 2 availible stalls in the bathroom. You go on exciting field trips where parents can go on. I think your school is one of the best in the state!
