My daughter attended there all 4 years as an IB student. I like the rigorous courses they offer, because students need to be prepared for college, and this school did that.
The PTA and Band Association were great, except that they need more parental support to help get many more positive things going on at the school.
The news always show the negative about Harding, but there were many positive things that went on-Fall Festival-the students put on a Fall Festival and many families came out to support it. The homecomings-every year students who used to attend the school would come back and participate. It was nice to see those who attended come back to support the school-it's like a family!
I hate that many teachers leave the school-they need to be a support to the children!
Harding University is a school for students who care about their learning-and they will receive it if they focus on their learning and not the negative things, because all schools have something negative about them. It is what you as students, staff, and parents do to make the school a positive place to attend!
Since the regime change at Harding, and with the new pending enrollment status changes, things are about to get worse than they already are at Harding. The students do not care to learn, nor do they behave in any way shape or form. Furthermore, the administration does not enforce rules fairly. They play favorites with both teachers and students. For the most part, the teachers are efficient. But this school does not look for the students' best interest.
My son attends Harding University High school and I must say I'm so very pleased with the school and the teachers. They are supportive and want what's best for the students. The teachers also challenge the students academically and that's just great. Harding also offer alot of pre- college courses. I'm proud to have my son attend Harding University High School!
As an alumni, I love Harding University High School because it is the only high school in the state with the word 'university' in its title. And it offers the I.B. program for extensive learning. Harding is also a magnet school, which means that a student can live anywhere in Charlotte and attend Harding. The marching band also marched at the Inauguration as well and I am very proud of them.
