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.
this school is awesome my child is always saying how awesome this school is and how great the teachers are
awesome school had so much fun in this school cool teachers and staff and the lunch isn't so bad
The schools ok I did have to deal with a few bullies here and there fights don't happen often I would say its fine if you keep low profile
Nervous about sending my 6th grader to this school because of the past poor reviews. I hope things have changed.
Harney Middle School is an awesome school and has many activities and clubs you could join. This school is the BEST! I've been here for a year so far and it is awesome!
this school is a bad place there is to many fights and kids ditching school a lot you should not go to this school or either should your kid!!!!
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.
im a student at Harney nd i have only a year nd i will only go a year.i moved and next year im either going to Gibson or Lead but i for one want to say i LOVE the teachers there.Mrs.Entler Mr.Marks etc. are awesome teachers.i also made a lot of friends nd theres not anything bad to say about this school.i recommened it 100% %percent%
im a seventh grader a harney and it is a great school there are a couple of concerns i have though the school could have more discipline for some of the inapropriate students and be more strict on the cursing but other than that it is a good school
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 love Harney Middle School. Great teachers, and they all do what they need to do to get the students attention, and keep them well behaived
This school is an amazing school. They have excellent extra curricular activities. amazing music department, and very high test scores. The school has gotton AYP many of times, and the staff does a wonderful job, keeping the students in check. :)
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.
