Very good school! Always has fun activities with the kids! Staff, PTA, principal put in lots of money to the extra activities offered by the school. The principal knows how to handle the students and is on top of everything. All the teachers that my kids ever had were excellent!
I am a student that have been attending Henry E. Harris since 2001. When I first got to the school, I didn't think I would last very long there, but now I am in the 8th grade and I couldn't have had a better 8 years of my life. I think this school is one of the best and they have great academics. Now, I am going onto high school next year, and I feel prepared for whatever they throw at me. I have been accepted into one of the best high schools in New Jersey, and I don't think I could've done it without the help of all the teachers and students that lead me down the path during my years at Henry E. Harris.
My children have attended Henry Harris since 1993. I can only say that the teachers, principals and other faculty are the best I have ever encountered. They are attentive, caring and knowledgeable. They are always available for parent counsel and friendly in every aspect. The curriculum is excellent, and I am pleased to say that my children are excelling. I also have a child in special services, who is now in Bayonne High. They have encouraged him in grade school and continue to oversee his academics in high school, where he is an honor student. I recommend any new students to attend if possible. They give the students high praise and follow through with their progress.
