Harding is a source of pride for Marion, offering a great variety of coursework & diverse student population: it allows every student to find his or her niche. Staff are friendly and helpful. Some teachers should curb their liberalism and allow more points of view than the popular and/or "politically correct." Still, music programs are phenomenal, and academic offerings help the motivated to prepare quite well for college and career! Harding offers kids ample opportunity to learn to get along well with people of a wide variety of backgrounds--what a great preparation for life!

I currently attend a well-known four year university and am proud to say that I went to HHS. I learned so much from HHS thanks to quality teachers. HHS prepared me well for college. Thanks to these teachers, I have had no trouble at all adjusting to college level material. I was also lucky enough to take AP courses which allowed me to earn college credit via a national placement test.

People do have problems with Harding High School. There really is nothing wrong with it. It is the students choice if they want to do the work and learn about it. Teachers are very helpful and nice they try their best to try and help every student every 45 or 50 minutes they have for each period. You can get involved with alot of programs and extracurricular activites too. I was in art,keyboarding,and family living. Parents are allowed to get involved when needed. I learned alot at Harding High School for my freshmen year. They are ready for everything and anything that the students are ready for. I think that its a very great place for kids to learn and open their minds. Football,soccer,tennis,swim,basketball,softball,baseball teams some of them that are great. People say that Harding isn't for learning but they dont see the friendship and hard work that happens, I do.

Harding High School should not even be called a 'school'. Kids learn little, teachers teach little. Harding High School would be a bad choice for any kid trying to reach the next levels of education.

Harding High School is an amazing school full of friendly teachers and active parents. The principal is by far the friendliest and most outgoing principal I have ever had, he knows every student on a one-on-one basis. I really love going to Harding High School.
