I don't get paid enough. I understand that the secret room underground is awesome but still. We have to pay for the hostages w/ our budget or pay. I'm leaving this school now. Everyone else is just screwing around complaining about education.

I absolutely LOVE this school!! My son was being bullied at a previous middle school, and since he has transferred, his grades have came up, and he has more confidence! The teachers and staff are VERY effective with communicating concerns, and or events immediately. I appreciate, prompt responses when I leave messages for teachers in regards to checking in to see how things are going! This school could be an example of how certain other CR schools SHOULD be ran!

I agree with the prior review, which shows that the faculty and administrators have very poor conflict resolution skills. My son attended this school for two years. He was not only 4.0, had 99% ITBS (near perfect score), all around athlete, strong volunteer in the community and all around honest child. The faculty did not select him for the Chargers of the Roundtable Honor Society even though the principal presented said awardees/inductees as being the "best of the crop students/ The top students" . They were very evasive. I attended the award ceremony. it's a teacher's pet society,

Harding is great!!!! Teachers and fellow students are wonderful. Teachers know what they teach, and all the academics are very good. They are PACTS for the advanced students if they do well in school or district testing, etc. For the honor roll, if you do good like a 4.0 3.5-3.95 or 3.0 -3.5 your name is on the harding page. As for the Chargers for the Round Table. Its not the students that do good in school or so... Its the caring, honest, MOST helpful students.

Very good school its better than most of them. Think about this. Your lucky your in this school. There other schools out there maybe, that aren't as great. Don't criticize so much and take it for granted. Be thankful for this pretty good school.

I thought that Harding did not have that large of a variety for education. When my daughter went there it was like nothing challenged her at all. I think that you should sincerly think about a different school.
