Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Harper High School has been a turnaround school for three years and it is making great progress. Since the start of turnaround, Its attendance has increased by 15%, it's drop out rate has reduced by 15%, its percent of students going to college has increased by 6%, and more students than ever before are involved in co-curricular activities and sports. Harper is a rising star that will return to its glory years because of terrific students, a dedicated staff, and exactly the kind of hope that Waiting for Superman inspires.

Turnaround or not, if you send your child here, you are a fool. I transferred mine out because of the constant fights, poor teachers and horrible administration. if i could give it 1 stars i would!!!!

perfect school for any young black youth to pursue an education. the security is fantastic but unnecessary for the kids mostly go straight to class. the teachers are intricate with their teachings and understanding of students. i would recommend this school to only those serious about receiving an education.
