My daughter will be going to HP in a couple of years, so I thought I checked out the reviews. Most reviews were written by students. And unfortunately, EVERY SINGLE one has either grammatical or spelling errors, or both! I worry about the quality of education here, even though the school does have great reputation (as with all other Pleasanton public schools).
im a student at HP and im in 7th grade. i LOVE this school. if i ever had to move i would absolutely stay in this school! theres nothing bad about it, well except one thing.... we can only be here for yrs! (:
i go to hp and its a fantastic school. there are a lot of good teachers that will work with you independently to achieve successfully. they really prepare you for high school. there are great programs including avid, leadership, out side clubs, volleyball, and languages. the school is very spirited and atheltic as it thrives. character is huggee. mr. hansen talks a lot of the chrris characteristics. (compassion, honestly, respect, responsibility, integrity, and self discipline. the staff tarkets on getting the 'invisible student' noticed and involved with others. you can become involved in your school through leadership and have fun with your friends. i love harvest park!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Harvest Park, my other home of security. Has helped he grow in many ways. This school helps build character as well as great amounts of knowledge. I had a great time in the 6th grade coming and leaving with a big positive smile on my face. Even though its summer and I'm having a great time with all my friends, I can not wait until I go to that warm, welcoming school again and get on principal's list again but this time I will be in the 7th grade! Thanks HP for the great year. Sincerely, Dylan F.
Character is of the utmost importance at HPMS and that, in addition to a talented and passionte teaching staff makes this an outstanding school. My son is in 6th grade
We moved to Pleasanton last year. Our child was able to take Honors Math, GATE language arts/history, Spanish. The school's Orchestra is excellent. Harvest Park offers many great electives like art, leadership, choir, etc, as well as foreign languages. It is a well rounded school where kids are challenged. They also have after school sports like basketball, volleyball, etc. We were very happy with all the teachers. This is an excellent school!
I am a student at this school we coulnt have better teachers and students. I love harvest park go patriots!
Good parent/staff envolvment = Great school = Fantastic kids(that want to learn!), that's Harvest Park Middle School! A very well rounded school with a strong commitment to the kids and their school/town community. Children have the option to take wireless laptop classes or normal classes in a very safe, structured and monitored environment. As a parent I see all staff members being envolved and getting to know the children seperately AND as groups. The teachers have open classroom doors before/after school for children who have homework/project/computer issues. Harvest Park is a school community with happy, well- rounded, high-achieving, kids, staff, PTA, and volunteer parents!
This school has great teachers and excellent supplies/materials/equipment available to all student. The office staff is exceptionally nice and helpfull.
Clean, safe middle school in a well-to-do neighborhood. Kids are relatively friendly and teachers seem to care.
Harvest Park is the best public school I have been associated with in over 20 years of volunteering at schools. Excellent in every regard.
My child has thrived at Harvest Park. The teachers are very involved and anytime I have emailed a teacher, I have received a very prompt, courteous response.
Harvest Park Middle School is also a Blue Ribbon school, a national honor!
