My child is in the 6th grade. Middle School is new to both of us. My child did not have the best grades and I would expect to be contacted by a teacher with concerns. No teacher ever initiated a call or email. I always did. I guess the parents are to depend on Infinite Campus for all info. So I called the 6th grade counselor because I was concerned that my child was not progressing or excelling. I basically told that CCSD states a "D" is passing. So if he is not failing, I wouldn't be notified of anything. My expectations and Clark Counties expectations are two different things. I feel like the teachers and staff should be more concerned with grades and care more. Not depend on iPads to teach the student the majority. Also, the students in my opinion seem very sad, depressed, with suicidal ideation. My child exchanged numbers with other students and I monitor his EVERYTHING. There have been at least 3 little girls who have mentioned to him how they "cut" or have cut themselves in the past, or how their are rumors going around about a girl "cutting emo" how they don't want to live anymore, or how they feel ugly. Idk if it's Middle School jitters or if they are looking for attention

The School itself is ok, however,Im concerned with the lack of teaching thats being given. I understand that the Schools are evolving into the new technology for students, but that still doesn't make it ok for the Teachers to not teach and help the students who are having problems with certain subjects. You have some good teachers and some bad ones. If teaching is not your love, then there should be another field you should try.

Overall the school is clean and very well put. Teachers are ok. I'm constantly having to stress about my school work. I've been having thoughts about switching schools if possible. I'm only stressing over one particular class. Ms. Holitik class accelerated. First of all the class is ENGLISH not POETRY! And everytime she gives the class an assignment to do she doesn't explain it to where me and my other classmates understand. She teaches us stuff nothing related to English. She basically bullies her students. If you try and ask a question to her she will literally embarrass you to the whole class. She will start yelling at you. She will not help you in any other way! I come from John C. Fremont MS and it's a fair school, but I learned more there than I do here! In harney there is so much pressure on te kids to do more than well. In Fremont MS they help you out with problems. In harney all they do is tell at you and your done. And I already know by posting this I'll get Suspended or something, but there's no other way I'll be heard.

I went to Harney MS for three years, it is a nice school. Always clean, friendly staff, and great teachers. There is also a ton of after school activites for everyone including anime fans, also the basketball team is basically undefeatable and the choir program is top-notch. Its a very good middle school and i enjoyed my three years there.

Harney is a very good school. I recomend any student to come here. The teachers are very friendly. They have gotten AYP many times and have an excelent music progrm. Expecially the choral program. If you want to send your child to Harney I highly recomend it!

I'm very impressed with the principal, staff, activities, curriculum, and music department. Wouldn't change a thing! The librarian is also very sweet and I've enjoyed the time I've spent helping and hope to be there more this year.

I was disappointed with most of the teachers and their lack of communication. I e-mailed several of them, asking them to update inTouch and only one replied. She excelled in extracurricular activities and I have no complaints about the coaching staff. I do have to admit that we moved in order for our daughter to continue her education at this particular school. Overall, I am happy with Harney Middle School. The supporting staff seems to genuinely care about each and every child.

We have not been happy with the lack of cooperation of the teachers involving our son's failing grades. On several occasions I have left voicemail for every teacher and did not get one call back. I spoke with the counselor about his grades, and was informed even though he has 3 F's and 2 D's they are not going to hold him back. We tried to get him into special education classes at the first of the school year and were told they would not do it. Have been told one thing from one teacher and then a completely different thing from another, both contradicting each other. Not real happy with the educators at this school.

If you are a parent and are considering to send your child to this school I highly recommend you look into it. This school has displayed no leadership in my book & no interest with the childs needs.

The school is very safe, and they are very happy to meet with parents, the staff is great and the band teacher is wonderful. The school has no problem with stopping unknown people to find out what they need.
