Harding is a really good school. Both of my brother went to Harding and graduate from Harding, so I am the third one that will be graduating from Harding. I am creating my own club and the teachers still want to supervise the club that I am creating, even though their schedules are full. This shows that they are really caring. The school should offer gymnastics because I know some students who likes gymnastic.

I moved to saint paul and wanted to find a good school, I really wanted to go to central, but they said central was full so i went to harding. It turned out harding were really competitive in sports. The teachers also tried to keep me on track so i could graduate, even though i had a lot of training to do. I'm a sophmore and i love harding high school so far. This is why i give it a 5.

I came to this school during my junior year of high school. It was a great school that had teachers with an understanding knowledge of the students. Many parents think that the school isn't trying hard to help out. I would have to object to that opinion. I think it really depends on the students minds and how they and lead their hearts in to education. I feel that the teachers met their deadline with the students and trying to make the best out of us for all of us to be able to graduate. So I gave it a five star. :)

So far, the new smaller learning communities program is still in the developmental stages, but had done nothing to really group students into a certain area so far, in the inaugural year of the program, classes still were in seperate academies other than the freshmen. The total number of students continue to grow as registration is at an overflow, indicating the positive aspects outweigh the negative. Overall, the school has done an adequate job of giving students the opportunity to succeed.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Minnesota used Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-II Graduation-Required Assessments for Diploma (MCA-II/GRAD) to test students in grade 9 in writing and 11 in math. The MCA-II/GRAD is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Minnesota. Students must pass the MCA-II/GRAD in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
