My son is in the Pre-K program at Harnew, and I couldn't be happier with the teachers, staff, the PTA or quality of education my son is receiving. Everyone I've come in contact with has been respectful, kind, and has taken my thoughts and opinions very seriously.

The way the teachers care about the students. The after school activities. The general attitude about the community

The teaching staff at Harnew are excellent. Teachers at all levels take the time to know and understand each childs needs. Harnew offers many different programs for children who need extra or special help. An example of this is the Speech Dept. Each child is tested at the start of school and children who need assistance are placed in an appropriate program for as long as needed. We received a new Principal last year who interviewed very well, but has proved to be less than what I feel Harnew has had in the past. There is little or no communication to the parents, discipline is on the rise, school programs have been dropped or changed w/o notice as have extracurricular activities. Assemblies went from 3 to 4 a year to 1 last year. I personally feel very disapointed in choices she's making.
