I was so thankful to move to a different school district. Many teachers at Julian Harris like to play favorites with their students. My daughter has been excelling in school ever since we moved away from Julian Harris!

I don't have a single bad thing to say about Julian Harris. Every aspect- the principle, the teachers, the councelors, the PTA, and the after-school programs- has impressed me. I have two children in this school and am very pleased.

The staff and teachers care about the children. I know my grandchildren are learning and being looked after. I have really enjoyed the programs I have attended.

Julian Harris is the best school in Decatur. You have great teachers, along with a great Principal. Everyone listens and loves to hear new ideas and always your thoughts and concerns. Keep it up! Between my 2 children, we have been at Julian Harris 6 years.

We have been at JHES since kingergarten, and sadly after this school year, my daughter only has 5th grade left. It seems our experience improves each year. The teachers and staff are outstanding.

This is 'The Best' Elementary School around, parents are involved and the school wants you to be. Mrs. Doran made first grade better for us. Thank you

Julian Harris Elementary really involves parents in the education process. I have never seen a more open school. Academics are also excellent.
