The fact that every teacher my child has had looked at his readiness as a positive instead of a reason to let my child fall through the cracks is a blessing very few parents get to witness. Every teacher my child has had since kindergarten always wanted to push my child to the limits they could with the limited resources Harte has. The Teachers are top-notch at Harte, they're always caring and want the best for all the students,5 stars. I did have issues with the old Principal, but newly assigned Principal, Ms.Rodarte seems to have a better plan for the school, so 4 Stars, but most likely be 5 by next year if Ms.Rodarte is allowed to stay. My main gripe with the School is the lack of Parent involvement, most treat the school like a day care and not a school. They get upset when a Teacher wants better for the kids who may have issues keeping up and instead of trying to improve the situation they like to blame the teachers for not being able to make their kids better, it's not all the Teachers people, they spend more time with you than the Teachers so.....yeah figure that one out. Either way Harte is truly a great school and I hope they will be given the extra resources they need.
Great School in a not so great neighborhood. Wish there were more parental involvement. My child has attended since first grade and she is now in the fourth! Hate to see her leave. Some not all but some teachers are friendly and very informational. Need more academic programs though!
Great teachers! Very focussed on learning and encourage parents to get involved.
Decent science and computer labs for 2 years Mrs. Brown, principal for past 4 years was enthusiastic and implemented a great number of changes and improvements. Open Court Reading Program is excellent:teaches phonics, reading, comprehension, and writing
Our 2 students made great improvement in problem areas thanks to excellent teacher caring. Behavior problems were dealt with very effectively thanks to the fine head office team of p/vp/psychologist. Overall effort/results are praiseworthy. A growing school w/good school spirit & activities.
