The teachers are great! My daughter attends there and I am a school mom! The whole school stands behind their faculty and parents! No other school will do for me.

This school has been great for my kids. So great that I live out of the district and continue to drive them in every morning. The principal is very involved in all aspects of the school. The teachers are well-educated and work to involve parents and keep kids interested. They have many extra curricular activities they encourage and the highest scores in math and reading. While they do tend to send a lot of homework, most schools are comparable. The local private schools do not, but are also behind in math education.

Harrison Is a wonderful school. My son went to Kindergarten there last year. His teacher was an incredible lady and a wonderful teacher. By December my son was reading. Even though he is painfully shy, the teacher was amazing at working with him to draw him out. He only had 17 kids in class. This school is filled with a wonderful staff, nice and helpful. They have involved parents who help as well. Mr B is a great princpal and the kids respect him.

Harrison is a so so school. My kids have, so far, had one good teacher and two bad ones. I have one in Kindergarten now and I am VERY dissapointed! He brings home more homework than I do in college. What are they doing in class? The new guidelines for entering and exiting kindergarden are completely unrealistic. The school the attitude that if these kids don't pass than it is something that us parents are doing wrong at home. I am going to try and find a good private school for my kids in elementary.

This school is below average. They have to many kids and not enough space. The test scores are below other schools in the area. We did get a new principal this year but I'm not sure if that will make a difference. Children can't learn if classrooms are to full. I pulled my child out a placed her in a smaller better school.

Harrison Schmitt offers excellent programs for students at all levels. This elementary school has the largest contrast in family backgrounds/income, but strives to maintain equality of all students. My children love being there, and I can't rave enough about the teachers we have been fortunate to work with. The staff is extremely supportive of students and their families. We have been thrilled with every aspect of our children's educations from the day-to-day to music, art and computer education to extra-curricular activities and field trips. Our entire family would highly recommend this school to everyone!
