I do not recommend this school. There is a huge drug and gang problem here. And the curriculum is very poor, and not very challenging, but they did have an average sports program. My daughter only attended this school for one year and I transferred her out.

Scores are very low overall, we came from A-rated schools in both CO and FL, very shocked at lack of improvement in last 3 years. Some teachers have shown inappropriate behavior/attitude in front of students, pricipal is very quick to address these issues though.

I have no rating for HMS because my child is a first year student. Althogh I may give the school a rating for the awarness of the faculty and staff. I did have an enjoyable registration with my son, and have been made aware of my son's late arrivals. I am glad the school is keeping up with my childs attendance. I do have a few questions? Why is this schools rating so low compared to the rest of the district? Is the rating of the school only based on the testing basis of the district? How is it that I may be sure my son is receiving a good education when it is unusuall for my son not to have homework? It would be nice for the teachers to give us parents a call once in a while and just let us know how our children are doing!

HMS is a school where the teachers are more diverse and thus more closely reflect the diversity of the student population. A number of teachers are from or are very familiar with the community and have great emotional connections to it. While no school is perfect, I think the majority of what is going on at HMS is good and heading in an even better direction.

I have been associated with HMS as a student, parent and employee. I had normal difficulties as a student, and my childeren (2) had simliar difficulties. What was most satisfying is many teachers go beyond the norm to ensure students are cared for, not just educated but cared for. The school is situated in a tough area, but the staff and faculty enforce the standards. I am over all happy with the schools commitment to excellence.

Great school my son said The teachers and staff are very good with the students and that they helped him out when he needed it and the teachers tell me they want the best for their students. We are from another state and we love this school. My son is in 8th Grade and he loves it.

Harrison Middle School is a school for kids that don't need any structure. At this school they let their kids do whatever they want. It seems as though they are afraid of the kids. My childs grades went from A's to F's and she has been influenced by nothing but negativity.

My daughter has attended Harrison Middle School for 6th, 7th and 8th grade. The academics and teachers are great at Harrison. The classes are challenging and very educational. My daughter has not had any problems at all. The school is a very culturally rich school. The principal, Mr. Sam Obenshain, is one of the best principals you could ask for. He is a great leader and role model to students. He encourages them constantly to do their best. I highly reccomend Harrsion Middle School if you are looking for a great educational experience for your child!
