This school is getting dumber and dumber. This school is now separating the 7th graders and 8th graders now. I remember my daughters doing that in Kindergarden. They don't understand that fights are gonna happen with anyone. Not just the different grades. Also my daughter is trying to help her cousin get used to the school and being with her during school hours since she's new to Salinas. I'm taking my daughter out of this school. I'm not recommending it to any my friends who's children will be attending. Just because it was horrible last year. It doesn't mean that it's gonna be the same this year . The kids are suppose to be able to meet new kids . Not anymore.

My daughter has gone there and has had no problems. She gets along well with others because no one doesn't accept her. The faculty of the school is very secure and they always make sure that the students are safe.

HMS is great school for your children! The down side? Students must wear uniform, but some parents see that as a plus. Hey, look at the bright side--uniforms don't cost much and that allows you to save money for other important things. The teachers are awesome, and I miss them dearly because they help students learn, and also help them overcome any obstacles. The school also has a leadership class that is very fun to be in. Also, the school offers many tutorials and classes to help those who are struggling in class. The school also has tons of things to do, including Easter Egg hunts and the famous Husky Pride Day, a day where teachers reward their student's hard work by watching movies, playing games/sports, and even playing Family Feud! HMS is a wonderful school! -Cynthia M. Gonzalez

We had three students at Harden Middle School over the course of three years. Overall, we found the teachers and administrators to be marginally supportive of parents and students.
