Academics are a joke, sports are a joke. Six man football team is either beating home schooled kids by 45 points or getting beaten by 45 points by legitimate institutions. Kids and parents very clicky as well. If you're going along with everyone else and not challenging the school, you might be accepted. If you challenge the school or have different opinions/ ideas than most, you, your child or both are likely to become ostracized. It's not the worst place you could be, but if you truly want the best for your child whether it be athletically, academically or spiritually, my advice is to look elsewhere.
LOVE it here! The teachers have a one on one approach and see every child as individuals and tailor to their individual needs in order to make them as successful as possible. These teachers TRULY do love each and every child in that building as if these children were there own,
You pay a lot of money for your child to get a better education. What you get is lip service. When your child struggles there is no communication! Had to go up to the school on three different occasions to correct the English teachers math! When grading assignments. What she replied was you must do math different than me? I replied the correct way!
You can do better than HCA in the area. Mixed views on spiritual focus. They do a lot of the motions well but not as concerned with outcome of real spiritual growth. Academics are not super challenging, and you need to take at least one science class online or off campus to graduate. OK if you want to take and pay for a lot of college classes, not so good otherwise. Mentorship program is a charade. Go elsewhere.
I have been going to school at Harvest for 13 years and I would never change schools. This school you honestly get treated like a family. There are some kids who choose to neglect this and feel like the get treated unfairly, but they don't. They will tell their parents the only part of the story and then the parents get mad. I honestly could not think of a better place to go to school.
Harvest is a great school! I received my children's testing results for the past school year, and both of them are above average. Athletics are competitive, but the coach's care about the students attitude. You will never find a perfect school, but this school is pretty close. We would highly recommend.
