This is my sons first year here. He is in the 2nd grade. He has been home schooled. He has been here for a month and they decide to move him to another . They had an overpopulation of children and had a bunch of split classes so some children had to move after a month. Maybe that's okay for a kid who knows the school and has friends, not so cool for a kid just finding his way. Today I find out that the math t.a let me adjusting son know that if he didn't speed it up on his math work, she was going to rip his paper. I'm furious. I have no kind words for this school at this point. I hope it changes.
WE LOVE, LOVE, LOVE HARDING! My oldest begins 3rd grade and my youngest goes to kinder and they are both EXCITED! The kids, teachers, all staff members are Awesome! Also the fact that they provide two after school programs is the cherry on the cake!!!
my school is first in education even wit the cut backs. They take pride teaching the kids to always have a positive attitude and to help one another. They could always use help with the needs but they do very very well with what the city allows them. I am very proud to be a Harding grandparent / PTG member.
We had a great experience with Harding st. Elementary, teachers staff and principal . Thank you all for all your support and to make us feel welcome and safe for our kids.
Great School....., Great Staff..... Both my boys Julian and Jacob attended here. We Miss you thank you for the great memories. You Rock....
Hands down A great School! Mr. Clark is an incredible Principle with a knack of getting children to want to go to school. I will say that parent involvement is not where it should be but never the less the Staff does a great job. The consideration to safety such as child drop off & pickup is a prime example of the schools devotion to the children. I have 2 more years till my daughters leave there but I know they will leave well prepared for the next steps in their education.
This is my first experience in dealing with a public school as my children have always attended private school. So far, I am very pleased with the involvment of the teachers and especially the principal, Mr. Clark, in providing each child with the best education possible. Also, the office staff is very pleasant and professional.
I appreciate Harding's involvement and patience in assisting all children, including those with special needs. We have three sons here now, and we have been very pleased with Harding's teaching staff, most recently Mrs. Morrison & Mrs. Van, as well as that of administration. I'm confident Mr. Clark will continue on with the well being, education and safety of our kids at heart. Thank you ALL, you're awesome!
I feel the school was a very diverse school..Many different backgrounds.They had many extracurricular activities such as movie night,which all the kids enjoyed...Also the teachers were great!
HARDING ST. ELEM. SCHOOL HAS GOOD PARENT INVOLVEMENT. THEY HAVE MUSIC, ART PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO KIDS. MOST OF ALL THEY HAVE GREAT, CARING DEVOTED TEACHERS WHO CARE ABOUT THE CHILDREN. THEY NUTURE WHEN NEEDED AND ARE DISCIPLINE WHEN NEEDED. THEY HAVE A FAIRLY NEW PRINCIPAL WHO HAS ENHANCED THE SCHOOL. SHE HAS DONE MANY GOOD CHANGES
Good school considering it is public. Principal very involved with children's achievement.
Academics are over all well structured. Unfortunatley they do not offer a selection of after school activities that all children need and there isn't a lot of parent involvment. The school's staff does try to get the parents invlovment but the parents choose not to. I like Harding for the school itslef but the students famliy needs to be more involved.
I went to this school from Kindergarten to fifth grade. I am now a senior in high school. This school was very great and I hope you bring your kids there. All of my teachers from Mrs. Vaughn, Mrs. Wood, Mr. Tuttle, Mrs. Kennedy and more. I enjoyed my experience there.
I am thrilled about my children attending this wonderful school.I am truly impressed with the principle,her knowledge and understanding of children is terrific.Keep up the good work.
Harding is an excellent school. My son had 2 very fine teachers, Mrs. Vaughn & Mrs.Jordan in the 3hears he attended. I feel that the school is trying very hard to give the kids a quality education in a nice environment. Keep it up!
