Harrison School 5

Harrison Is an amazing school!! The principal is highly committed to keeping our kids safe. No other principle would stand out in the parking lot doing cross walk duty after school everyday, not one I've seen anyway. The staff is generally great , other than a current newly employed first grade female teacher. The P.E teacher has the student's popularity vote, and the school offers a on-site school resource officer. The real issue is the parents of almost 800 kids, they will be the first to complain However, do you think these parents are proactive in their child's school or education? NO This school has very limited parent involvement, and before complaining get involved!!!!!

This school has serious issues. Some students are bullied daily by teachers, staff, and other students. Nothing is ever done about this situation. They just turn the other cheek. Very disappointed in this school!

Administration sweats the small stuff, not the big stuff. For the second year in a row, administration decided to enforce the dress code starting in the middle of the year, not the start of the year. I fully support the dress code, and in fact would support school uniforms. But inconsistent enforcement of the dress code creates confusion and allows kids to talk parents into buying non-code compliant items, like ripped jeans that are later banned, as what happened shortly after the start of 2nd semester. Teachers overall are OK. Some are good, a few border on mediocre. There seems to be an extra focus on math achievement, which is good.

This school is understaffed and overwhelmed. There is a serious bully problem that is often blamed on the victims. There is a theft problem due to no lockers. To serious issues, the staff seems to turn the other cheek, but if a child is found with holes in the knees of their pants, he/she will be sent home. Priorities and politics are backwards in this school.
