This is my first experience with Harris Elementary. I have found the teaching staff is dedicated and have high expectations for all students.

We found this to be a better school than the scores suggest. Teachers and principal were wonderful. This was a school that fell in the cracks with the education improvements in Arkansas.

The Benchmark Exam is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Arkansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
