Love the staff and students! Just visiting from Woodland to see if this is the right environment for my son and I love it. Woodland has been a nightmare with the snobbiest of parents and clueless staff. Harding seems to represent themselves in a very professional and friendly way. Briarcrest has also impressed us as well. Have to make a decision between these two but it cant be worse than woodland.

* Close minded * Rich kids only allowed * They preferred white kids but will take a few minorities * You are not welcome if you are not part of the social "club" in town. * Kids keep to themselves not interested in any relationships with others outside of their "Christian" buble. * Many teachers are phony, hipocrites, self absorbed, etc...and they call themselves Christians. Sickening!! If you want your kid to live in a buble, be closed minded and be shocked when they get out and face the real world, send them to this school.

My son is currently attending harding academy. He is in the first grade and i must say he loves the school and the challenges that are given. As a parent it has taught my son a lot of important factor about life. I do plan to send my daughter to their preschool program. Staff there is just wonderful and caring.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
