Posted October 29, 2012

This is our first year at Harmon, but we couldn't be happier. The administration and staff really seem to present themselves as a cohesive team dedicated to the success of every student. I was more than a little concerned about shuttling back and forth to LHS Main campus for extra-curriculars. To be honest, the whole system seemed confusing before school started. What we discovered is that the shuttle bus system runs like clockwork...a complete non-issue for us. They really encourage the students to challenge themselves academically and be very involved in school activities. Sports, music, clubs....there is something for everyone at Harmon. With a diverse student population, the staff does a stellar job in running a tight ship that also happens to be a lot of fun. They seem to work very hard to keep the lines of communication open with parents. The are friendly, approachable and ready to work with parents and students. The teachers are energetic and engaging. We had other choices for high school and could not be happier with LHS-Harmon campus!
