This school has its high and lows. There are great teachers such as Mrs. Hare (7th-TX History), Ms. Fox (7th-Science), Mr. Keller (8thAlgebra), etc... but there are other not so great ones that my son has complained about such as Mrs. Azcona (9th-Geometry) and Mrs. Morgan (9th-Biology) who 1. dont teach the lesson because of one student's actions and 2. Instead of being a model for the students to follow use uncharacteristic tactics and repetitive tests sometimes day after one another. But other wise this is pretty good school considering all the things I've heard about the othe junior high schools around HEB.

Harwood junior high is a very good school. My son has been going there for 2 years and the teachers and faculty have always gone above and beyond to make sure my child is getting a good education. The sports programs they have our excellent the coaching is very good and the principal is always on topof any issues that may arise with students. There is a very good mix of different nationalities and I'm very happy with education my son is having I recommend the school to anyone

Harwood Junior High is hit & miss. For the most part, I've given a pass to some of the things that happen at this school, but the most recent really upset me. My son, who spends weekends at his dad's house, was pulled in and questioned about a missing cell phone that "pinged" a few blocks away from his dad's house in SE Euless. Problem is, the phone went missing Monday, when he was at our house in N Bedford. Instead of using logic and asking questions to rule him out, he was threatened with warrants to "tear apart his house" and the arrest of his father. Make sure your child knows to request the presence of their parent or guardian when/if questioned. The district is within their rights according to the code of conduct, but if I had known they were going to treat questionings like something out of Law & Order, I never would have signed it.

Harwood Jr High is a great school. The staff are very friendly and are passionate about their job. The school has lots of diversities, which helps the kids learn and live with people of all nationalities. My childs first year went very smoothly and she's excited about the new year as an 8th grader.

We are so pleased with Harwood Jr. High! Our son has had a wonderful first year. . .he had some struggles getting along with teachers in Elementary school, so we were concerned about the transition to Jr. High. He loves his teachers so much, that he cannot decide which is his favorite. We are also pleased and impressed with the band program at HJH. Its hard to believe they've been playing such a short time together. The instructors are firm and the kids have learned a great deal. The office staff is also friendly. This was another problem we had in elementary, an acceptable, but generally unfriendly office staff. We hope 8th and 9th grade go as well. Great job, HJH!

My daughter attended Harwood Junior High School for the first time this year in 8th Grade. The principals were subjective, fair and consistant in disciplining. The teachers went out of there way to assist my daughter, who was having trouble in math and science etc. with organization all together. Which made my daughter more outgoing and come out of her shell (so to speak). Principal Donaho, and teacher Mrs. Versland, Mrs. Ingraham are the best.

Along with the great learning experience they also have an excellent athletics program. My daughters volleyball team has been undefeated for 2 years now. Absolutely 0 losses.... The coaches are professional quality. Another reason for the wins is the training that www.TexasImageVolleyball.com provides. This is a great school with smart teachers and highly rated principals.

My daughter is presently in eighth grade at HJH. She came from out of state from a magnet program. Seventh grade was fairly easy for her, and I am happy that eighth grade is challenging her academically. She has four preAP core classes and a foreign language and is considering entering the IB program in high school. The only reasons I didn't give HJH five stars are the limited choices of electives (no Theater classes, forensics or Creative Writing) and the limited number of after school clubs which are offered in the more aflluent neighboring school districts.

HEY!!! I am a student at harwood junior high. I'm going into the 8th grade. But my point is this school is amazing. It's really nice. Sure the teachers can be a tad bit mean but they only want what's best for you:) Either that or they only want their paycheck:P No but seriously everything they teach from just simple math or life lessons, It's very informative and educational. Thus i recommend this school to any parents.

My husband and I are extremely pleased with Harwood Jr. High. Our daughter just completed 7th grade and she loves it there! Here teachers presented challenging coursework and set high expectations while communicating with our daughter and myself if necessary. Also, the new administration seemed to really set a positive tone with kids and parents. Good communication (principal emails a weekly newsletter) and consistency with the kids seemed to set clear boundaries. We are looking forward to her 8th grade year!

The new administration really took control and did a great job this past year. They established rules, and made sure they were followed. I was also impressed by the new principal's big expectations, and his desire to meet those. Great school.

Horrible is all I have to say about this school. It does not meet my expectations as a parent. My child needs help since she has ADD and she is not getting the right attention for it. I demand this school to be demolished immediatly. Thank you for your time. Good bye and have a lovely day. :)))))

Overall, Harwood Jr. High is above average as HEBISD junior high schools go. By and large, teachers are committed to students (we've sent 2 through.) Some discipline problems needing to be addressed swiftly, markedly, and then sustainably. Inappropriate language and PDA are so rampant, students have become desensitized but parents remain concerned. Few extra-curricular activities except in athletics. New librarian trying mightily to update his 'realm;' kids seem to be responding positively. PTA is active but involvement drops off dramatically from elementary school. Administratively, all new staff this year -- 2 new VPs and new principal. A few policies (parents bringing lunch for kids) shot w/o parent/student input, but they seem to be trying. The jury is out for this year. Let's hope things improve over previous administration. Our kids love it there; we can't wait to get them out. Reality is somewhere in the middle.

I attended HJH during my junior high years and was excited when my oldest son started. At first it seemed like how it was back in the 80's but really it is not. Most of the extra curricular activities no longer exist. There is no booster club or even a Student Council that the kids can participate in. Spirit Parties are a thing of the past. 9th graders no longer have dances, homecoming mums, and letterman jackets. And where is the principal? There wasn't a day that I didn't see Mr. Downs or Dr. Whitley. Last year the princ. was never around, and this year we have a new one and he is never seen either.

This is our second year in public school and I have found Harwood to be a good school. It is safe and somewhat challenging for the students. While there is always room for improvement I am satisfied overall. My child also likes the school but would appreciate more school activities for the 9th grade. A few more social activities and clubs would really be appreciated by kids. Overall, good school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
