Map of Harris Elementary School address.

I was a former student at Harris and I am now attending Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy as a senior on my way to college. I can't say that Harris completely prepared me for the rest of my primary education but I will say that Harris helped me alot in getting my basic education and that I really miss this school.

I don't feel this school care enough about children who have difficulty learning. The school has no programs to help these children or offer extra support. I will be moving to get out of this school district and to a school that actually takes pride in all children not just the ones that can make it with out educational guidance.

My daughter is in Kindergarten this year and the staff at Harriss Elementary School have made the transition for preschool/daycare to big girl school so much easier than I thought it would be!!

I have had two children to attend Harris Elementary and I was very pleased with the school. The administration and staff is wonderful. The teachers are excellent. They really care about the students and they prepare students for middle school. I am very appreciative for what a great school it was for my two children.

This school provides students with a wonderful education. They treat each child as an individual and provide a loving and caring environment.
