I don't even know where to begin....We LOVE Harris Private school!!! Both of children started their schooling at Harris Private and then tried public schools for a few years. They ended up BEGGING us to send them back to Harris and we couldn't be happier!! The staff goes above and beyond to see that ALL students are able to excel at their individual levels. The principal runs a tight ship and helps lead our children with Godly character and advice. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming to parents that would like to help out. Again we couldn't be happier with the education our children are receiving and we look forward to sending our third child next year!!

The staff at Harris Private is excellent, they have a real connection with the students. I've seem improvement in both academic performance and attitudes in both my daughters over the last two years. They are getting a great education and so much more!

I never cease to be amazed at the teacher's dedication to the students and their high moral standards!! I have a preschooler and a second grader. I highly recommend this school to anyone(regardless of your 'religious preference') who has high standards for academic growth, parent-teacher relationships, and character virtues!

This is not your typical 'Christian' school. They are not 'politically correct on religion' They are 'Biblically' correct.The kids are taught how to act, how to treat others, how to solve problems via God's instruction book. The student performed and God Inspiring worship is a blessing.The students are allowed to accel by wonderful teachers whose goal is to educate you child, not just to get them past their class. If you are searching .... I promise this is a 'City on the hill' for your little ones.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
