I was a Lincoln Park alum myself, but, my son is a student at Harris and I am very impressed that they have done their best to work with his very active mind. Mr Tillet was the best at challenging him on his math skills. It's hard when you have a child who seems to be smarter than you and good to know the staff knows how to challenge these students. I also welcome the new female principal!
Excellent school, teachers, staff. Overall administration greatly improved by Mr. Harold Olin, Principal of 2 yrs. Sadly, he left May 2005, so I pray his replacement is his equal or better. weak link: children who have zero discipline at home = out of control kids at school. Makes learning harder for my well-behaved kids. PARENTS: Be a parent! Train your children to MIND! Be involved in your child's school career!
I was student at harris elementary. It is a very clean school,great teaches(the best I had would have to be mr.tillet and ms. wolf). Its a very good school and the teachers try thier hardest to teach the students. I had Mr. tillet the first year he started and he was a very good teacher and knew exactly what to say to his students to make them want to learn more. Ms. wolf was the best I had though..she was funny,caring,very sweet and smart. but the only problem I had with the school would have been the principal and the social worker(who tried digging into alot of personal issues that happen at home) but other than that its a very clean school good teachers and the best emementary school in greenfield!
Harris is a fine school. I think one of the best things is the communication between the teachers and parents. It is imperative that parents are involved in their child's education and Harris reinforces this. I miss Mr. Blue's leadership but am not complaining about Mr. Olin.
