My son attends this school and we are all very pleased. We moved here from the Atlanta area this past Summer. Great communication and my son is thriving. He loves his 7th grade teachers. We picked Cabarrus County to live because of their excellent schools and no regrets.

Worst experience I've ever had with a school! Bullies run the school. Teachers do very little teaching. We spend hours on homework because my child comes home without ever being taught. Many other parents have voiced the same concern when it comes to their children as well. The principals are extremely unprofessional and have ZERO concern for my child. I have spoken to several of them and have been shocked at their lack of professionalism. They don't return phone calls, they roll their eyes at you when your speaking, and they make it obvious that they simple don't care about your child. If you can, choose to go to another school. Unless your child is a bully, this isn't the place for you!

I'm starting here in a few weeks (I'm late), but I've heard it's very nice here and I can't wait to try it.

I just recently graduated Harris Road Middle School, and I loved it. All three years at HRMS were exceptionally well!! The teachers and staff are wonderful! They are caring and understanding. I never had a problem talking to one of the teachers, I was always comfortable. The classes are great as well!! I learned a lot from all of my teachers, and was able to explore things I never knew were possible!! And the school spirit is absolutely outstanding! I'll never forget this school. GO PATRIOTS! (:

I went to Harris Road spent 6th grade and 1st semester of 7th and that school is amazing. I love Harris Road. After I went to Harris Road I went to JN Fries. JN Fries has a lot of fights and drama. Life at Harris Road was very constructive. I made all A's at Harris Road. The teachers are the best. When I started going to JN Fries my grades went down. For no reason at all execpt this crazy teacher. Everybody was failing her class. I didnt fail because of the grades I made at Harris Road. I love Harris Road.! :) Lets go Patriots.!

I am very pleased with this school. My child is a 6th grader at this school and he likes it as well. He has great teachers and the childrens good behavior was recently rewarded with a trip to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid and then CiCi's Pizza for lunch...wish I had gotten such great field trips/rewards when I was in school! The communication is great and I receive emails from one of the teachers on his team informing parents of upcoming tests, events, etc. This is a great Middle School with great teachers!

Harris Road Middle School is a terrible school!!! Be ware of this school!! This is my daughters last year there, THANK God!! They hate it there. 8th grade was the worse. Bullies run that school and the principal does nothing about it! I've written emails to them, talked to them on the phone, trying to get them to take actions against bullies. The principal states that he has "zero tolerance" against bullies but only talks to the bullies and let them roam the hallways. The superintendent does not return my emails. We have our house on the market and are trying to move to another county. My kids used to love school until they stepped into Harris Road Middle School.

The teachers are great. If you dont understand something they willl always break it down and make sure that you understand what you are learning. My teacher has a great motto ' I hear, I forget. I see, I remember. I do, I understand.' We always live by that in class. I love this school and cannot think about ever having to go to another school.

This is an amazing school and I can't say enough about the staff. My daughter just completed her 6th grade year and she loved it. The teacher / parent communication is excellent. We are moving and I dread taking her out of this school. If your picking out middle schools in Cabarrus County this one should be #1 on your list!!

I really didn't like this school at all when i attended it. If a teacher doesn't like you they will send you to ISS, even if they do not have a valid reason. The Principals do not care at all about the students and it feels more like a jail than a school. Personally i HATED the the 3 years i spent at this school.

The school is crowded, but what school isn't? The students are separated per grade, ie each grade has a separate hall/wing which only that grade should enter. The purpose of this is to keep the older students from bullying the younger, and it works great in the transition from elementary school to middle school. HRMS focuses on great academics, socializing is for after school and clubs. The goal of the teachers here is to prepare the students to excel in high school and beyond. There are several dances and other social events scheduled for only those students with passing grades and good behavior. This is a great way to reward those students who work hard, and provides a safe place and time for them to socialize with friends.

Too crowded and too rigid. My son often complains that he doesn't get any time to talk to his friends, can't walk in certain hallways. Last year being the first year for my son, dispite his good grades had write ups for absurd infringements just about every week. I first thought my son was being obnoxious until I saw the number of kids that go to Satarday detention.

In moving from Rowan County to Cabarrus County two years ago, I have found that the schools here push the children more academically then Rowan County. I also find the teachers more adept to working with me and my child. I keep constant email contact with my child's teachers, so that I can keep up on what she is and is not doing in school. This school as well as Cox Mill Elementary have impressed me with the attention that they have given my daughter.

This schools standards do not seem very high compared to where we came from in OH. My sixth grade son has to cut and paste pictures of his friends, family, country, and neighborhood for a project this week. That's a preschool assignment if I ever saw one! There seems to be a lot of riff raff at this school also. We will deinitely be sending the kids to a private school next year for both social and academic reasons!

This is a wonderful school. We moved from out of state last summer and had no idea what to expect. The staff is helpful and conscientious and students are well challenged. My daughter says to add that they have good food! The environment is a very positive one that promotes good behavior and academic success.
