The only thing that would make this district better is a school board who cared more about kids than money. A total makeover is in order. The high school has high quality educators who care about kids and go above and beyond the call of duty to help students succeed.
Im the army recruiter at this school I think it is one of the best high schools in OR, they have a great faculity and parents.
I was a student at Harrisburg High school and throughout my stay there, Freshman to Sophomore year, I had a terrible time. Teachers let Older students physically bully other students, with one (now retired) actually having a Senior student punch me when I refused to participate in shop class. Also, harassment by teachers and ridicule. I later went on to a private school where I flourished and succeeded without incident. This school is as backwater as they get, unless your a Good Ol' Boy or are willing to be, not a good place. Popularity among the tiny population is more important than academic achievements as most will wind up farmhands or mill workers.
Harrisburg is a great school district. I moved there from Springfield my senior year and I believe that one of the main contributing factors to my success.
