The Gilbert School District, in Gilbert AZ has made such a difference in my child's ability to learn. She is severly Dyslexic and is 4 years behind. AZ recognizes Dyslexia and it's related disabilities and complies with the identificationa and implimentation of the appropriate interventions. she is finally learning and I am so impressed..words can not say how greatful I am for their ethical and compassion to do the right thing....Dear Lord and Harris Elementary thank you, for giving my child what she needs
All three of my children attended Harris and they all had wonderful caring teachers. I would hihly reccomend Harris. Carrie Barno
The students do not receive consequences when appropriate. For example one student hurt another student and nothing happened to the student who caused it. But the teachers are wonderful and give their all to each student.
My child currently attends Harris and has for a couple of years. I think the principal should be commended for all her hard work as she makes this school work. There is much effort put into running this school. Also my child was blessed to have such a wonderful Kindergarden teacher, Mrs. O. Thanks to you dedication to the children, it showed.
Overall my kids really enjoyed this school. They excelled in my areas here and the teachers are great, they make the kids fell great about themselves.
This school was a big disappointment for the parents of a current student. As a result of this disappointment we are transferring the student. The teacher in the beginning of the year summoned parent support. I have been involved in schools every other Friday for three years as a volunteer and was only asked to help 2 times at Harris. I am a Phi Beta Kappa graduate and taught 7-8th grade years ago therefore I know my academic achievement was not an issue. I was told I was an excellent volunteer yet was not asked for help with the class. I wrote to the principal and teachers (2 different teachers this year) and received no support from the school. Very little feedback on the student s progress was ever given. This school was not rated high in my expectations of schools I am accustomed to working with.
I had much problems finding out how my student was doing all year. I tried to communicate with little or no feedback.
My children went to Harris all 7 years (k-6). I've been involved in the school for 8 years now. The teachers take the time to listen, care, and actually share in their children's lives. I will miss Harris greatly as I move on completely to Jr. High. You can not go wrong at this school!
