Majority of the Teachers at Harrison Central are lazy, they don't actually teach us the material. They either give us packets or give us almost all the answers while doing a worksheet. Neither of those methods are effective in the learning process.
Harrison Central is one of the only schools in the community to offer S.T.E.M. courses. They also strive to prepare their students for the 21st Century by providing each child with a Chrome Book. Class sizes are small and students are able to receive the individualized assistance they need. HCHS also provides great opportunities like the 21st CCLC After-School Program, Safe Schools Healthy Students Grant which provides in school Mental Health Therapists, Prevention Specialist, and Truancy Prevention, School Resource Officers, and many extracurricular activities to choose from. The School levy is up for the November ballot which would provide a brand new 45 million dollar campus which would centrally house all Harrison Hills Students. Harrison Hills City School District strives to educate the whole child and works to include families and community! With great staff, teachers, and administrators who truly care about your child, attending HCHS is a great choice!
Stay on top of your childs credits. Utilize OPEN ENROLLMENT if possible to offer your child a better education thru surrounding schools. Be prepared depending on where you live due to the consolidation, to drive far rural country roads to these schools that are far away from each other. If your child is involved in sports, there is an activity bus, but again be prepared to drive far distances for games and practices! MAKE YOURSELF INVOLVED, you will not find yourself being invited to parent teacher conferences on a regular basis NOR will you find that the teachers implement intervention programs!SHANNON DUDA, Freeport-Ohio
