This is a great school! I just graduated from here in 2016. I had a great experience here. It's not to big where you don't know anybody and not to small where there is nothing to do. Just like with any school you just have to find something your interested in and become involved. At this school there are many organizations to get involved in and make new friends. I wasn't there in 98' but it was nothing like how Manic explained it. You've just got to apply yourself and you will do fine.

I wasn't an athlete or from a prominent family. I loved Harrison and proudly send my own children there.

I was enrolled at this school as a student of the class of 98'. I recall my enrollment at this school as a real travesty, and a tragedy in lost potential, in that I feel I spent several years after trying to catch up on subjects I should have been made competent with whilst enrolled here, and still have yet to reach fully realize a working knowledge of others. No one noticed when I was struggling, and no one made any real effort to reach out. I was referred to the counselor once, and I'm certain it was an occasion which required all to see her. I spoke with the principle on one occasion, and he showed little in the way of concern for my well-being or progress, and more for how my complaints might effect his athletes. This school may have changed quite a bit since, granted, and I can only hope so. For my own experience taught me that unless your family has connections with the staff, is influential, or you're an athlete, you had better be fairly self-reliant in matters concerning your own education, because otherwise you WILL fall through the cracks. I always felt that part of the problem was the lack of diversity that might force the office staff and teaching cadre's hand in matters of discrimination, bullying, and bigotry/xenophobia in general. And it does appear as though this school is still predominantly white, and middle to upper-middle class. It would be a real shame if they still haven't fully addressed these issues for fear of hurting some prominent family's feelings or hindering their football team's potential for success.
