My daughter has gone here for 2 years and has really begun to blossom! The school work is challenging, and that's good. The band teachers are dedicated and teach the kids well.

All I'm going to say is that most of the teachers are obviously tenure teachers.

Homework is given, but maybe the teachers should go over it instead of giving us homework that we have to look up the answers for.

This school does not give the determination of learning and getting the best grades you can't get. They only want you to pass, not excel in school.

The teachers are extremely disrespectful. They have attitudes with the parents, and develop favorites within their students. If you're not favorited, consider yourself unlucky.

Even the counselors, who should the most compassion, lack empathy and do not care about your future. The counselors tell you exactly what you want to hear, not realizing that all the students talk exactly about what was said.

This school cares about the students excelling in school. If your child is not extremely smart, you will be the teacher's last priority.

This school has made me completely unprepared for high school. The teachers and principals should be more concerned with the success of their students and less concerned on whether or not someone is chewing gum. The teachers did not enforce any rules whatsoever, which meant fights would break out more than they should. This school has major issues, and the first thing we need to change is the administration. A professional principal means a professional school, which Harris road lacks.

The principal at this school has not taken the preventative measures to prevent bullying in this school. There is no research based program in place, and the admin team seems to think blaming the victim is okay, "He needs to tell someone." Really? That is not a proper response. The culture of the school needs to be cultivated and research based methods put into place. Just because many of the kids come from wealthy households does not mean that bullying doesn't occur. Just because the principal thinks that this is a "good" school doesn't mean there doesn't need to be something done. Someone should sue. It is too late in this day and age to not have a plan. Teachers need a leader and he needs to step up.

I feel like some teachers would explain things easier and give us easy ways to remember things, while others would just read out of a textbook and that would be it, and we would have to figure it out by ourselves, most of the time having to Google what we learn to figure it out.
