School Reviews

5   3/8/2010
I highly recommend Harrison. Their API jumped to 760 last year and the new principal continues to challenge the students & staff to reach the 800 goal this year. It is a smaller community based school that is perfect for those parents who are not comfortable sending their kids to learn at the typical middle school setting. For the 2011 school year, Harrison will be a K-8 school with the enrollment at approximately 560 for next schol year.
