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.

Harding is the best school I have worked at. I have never encountered a staff so committed to the success of its students in all aspects, whether it be academically, emotionally, or socially as a member of the larger community. In particular, through the use of RTI (Response to Intervention), Academic Advisory (large group re-teaching), and support staff, the resources and support for struggling students are enormous. The emphasis of giving back to the community and being a role model through Wolf Pack, 7th Grade Mentors, RUN DSM, etc. The school is also working to become a Pre A.P. school. Although the school still has far to go as a recovering SINA school, the growth it has made in just a few short years has been phenomenal. I am excited to see how the school evolves in the coming years.
