They put me in classes that don't challenge me enough, because I do 5 hours of sports after school.

I have a 4.0 for the first time, and in a safe learning environment. I do have a problem with the sexism in the school.

No legitimate Highly Capable Program, they seem to be trying to "figure it out"...and "in a few years we think we will have full program".. The meetings w/teachers in this program are very "well, if the student wants to do this work, maybe they could, if they are not too busy"...kids do much better with clear, concise direction and expectations, just like the real world they will be going into.... Why not just copy other great programs and affect the students NOW, challenge them..instead of in their own words "teaching to the lowest denominator"..challenge them, the curriculum as way, way too easy....sad.....20, 15, 10 years ago...they created a great reputation but not today. And for the love of God please add girls underwear/tights/leggings to the dress code.....

No recent reviews? This is a great school and great schools are contagious!!! Purdy Elementary was a great school for my daughter and Harbor Ridge has been a continuation of that. I will say that the teachers need to update the Parent Portal more often but in general this is a great experience for any student and their parents. Keep up the great work and a special mention to the Principal and Vice Prinicipal!!! Heavily involved and the administrative office staff is great too!!!

Harbor Ridge Middle school in beautiful Gig Harbor is the best middle school in the district. Excellent administration, solid teachers who truly care about the students. The student body is friendly and welcoming. No gang, drug or piercing problems in the school. Very supportive environment. This school is top notch & in a beautiful setting.

Absolutely tremendous principal, vice principal and staff. We moved this summer from a highly rated school system in Dallas, TX. Our daughter had a learning disability in math that qualified her for nothing but an excellent math teacher. She was above avererage in all other subjects. The philosophy of HRMS is to intervene sooner rather than later and boy did they. Within one month my daughter had been given the WISC by the school psychologist and there was a team meeting. She was switched to a class where she might possibly learn math easier. The team meeting was at 7:30 am. Two psychologists attendend, the principal Connie West, her former and new math teacher, her new Social Studies teacher, etc. I'm a 'seasonded' mother of many children, dedicated to their success. I have never had the pleasure of experienceing a staff under the guidance of Principal West and staff.

Harbor Ridge has been a good school for my daughter. Disappointed in the fact that they are currently the only middle school in the district to drop choir. I think the administration is very sports oriented. Some of the newer teachers are great but a few of the older ones need to retire. Not much parent involvement. Disappointed with 6th grade block, but the 7th and 8th grade block picked up the slack. Lots of school pride. Absolutely stunning location and beautiful view
