'Nobodies' at this school are made to feel inferior and like outsiders. This extends from academics to the sports programs. If you're not the child of well-connnected parents, forget it!
Good Principal but a real let-down in how the students are treated. Where is the wonderful, upstanding faculty I have heard so much about?
Obviously overall I am very pleased with Harrison High School. It has a great location and I believe that it ranks one of the best schools my daughters have ever attended.
Having 2 children that are currently attending Harrison, I am completely satisfied with all aspects of this school. They stress character, honesty, leadership, and individualism, and try to help our children make the right decisions in life. President George W. Bush thought enough of Harrison to make a formal visit there during his first term in office. Every year they have 100% participation in the PTSA, which contributes thousands of dollars per year to the school. Their many students clubs are encouraged to help those less fortunate by donating their time at inner city soup kitchens and other area 'help ministries'. Their intrumental music program consist of a nationally rated orchestra, concert and marching band, creating many college scholorship opportunities for their students. Their football team consistantly wins their division, and competed in the state championship game several years ago. I would definately move into this area just for this school.
I graduated from Harrison this year, and it is a great school. The teachers are great and give you every opportunity to do your best. We do have an active performing arts department, take it from someone who actually goes there. The band, drama, and chorus deparments are excellent. The athletics program is great, especially football. Harrison really is overall a great school, definitely the best in west Cobb. I really enjoyed my four years there; I wouldn't have gone anywhere else.
Completely inadequate teach staff and administration. Performing Arts program does not exist.
