he Harris School provided both a great learning and social atmosphere for our ADHD son, which is hard to find in the public setting. The small class size individual attention was very god for our son. He learned more as a student in this setting because of the specialized approach to his ADHD that The Harris School provided. We learned so much about our son as the specially trained teachers and other professionals worked with him and gave us guidance and understanding of how to best approach his unique situation. The staff was friendly and supportive and the administrator, Susan, went beyond what was necessary to accommodate us and make us, and our son, feel at home. It was a breath of fresh air to have our son go to school with people that truly understood him and we saw his grades rising as the Harris staff was able to apply the proper approach to our son's learning needs. We were in Houston for only a few months for a medical situation and then moved on, but we, and our son, have benefitted so much from our time at Harris. We wish we were Houstonians because Harris would be the place we would choose.

This school has provided my son the opportunity to fluorish. He had trouble at his previous school with social skills and has been diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, and OCD. The low student to teacher ratio afforded the individual attention he needs. Highly recommended.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
