Harbor View is a caring, nurturing, and supportive school. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a progressive, positive and highly academic school in the Orange County area. The negative comments made on this site are by parents that have not communicated with their student's teachers or the hard-working principal. I have always found the teachers to be open and welcoming to suggestions and questions. The homework is adequate and fair. As I have heard from parents and students from the high school, the academics from kindergarten through the sixth grade has prepared our students so well to handle the rigors of high school with poise and ease, that our students score much better than the students of our other zone schools. Just take a look at CdM's honor roll and you will find most of the students came from Harbor View!
I'm shocked to see the positive comments here considering so many parents pull their children out of this school in sixth grade. If your child attends this school, pull him or her out by the sixth grade. If your child attends sixth grade here, be prepared to home school up to five hours a night, and expect no commumication from the teachers.
Extremely Excellent! It doesn't get any better when it comes to teacher dedication, parent involvement and 'happy & highly educated' kids. We are so thankful for being apart of Harbor View Elementary and all it has to offer! Thank you everyone!
