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.
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.
