This school is absolute no bully zone. It also has a strict code for plagiarism, especially if you're a 11th or 12th grader. Plagiarism will get you kicked out of the Diploma Program(DP)

Harrison Prep is a good school to nerd and geek out at. I've been going there since the 8th grade and I'm now a 10th grader. These years so far have been fun and slightly challenging. The classes aren't too easy, so I don't have to worry about being bored in class. The teachers really try get their students learning and teach in different styles, so kids if have different learning styles they don't have to worry about falling behind. It's a strictly no bully zone, which is awesome, because the school I went to before this one, I was bullied by a teacher. Making this schools ABSOLUTE NO BULLY zone amazing. Though the skits to teach kids on how not to be bully and how to follow school guidelines is super cheesy and a tad bit cringy. It doesn't have sports, but it's because it focuses mainly on academics. The also encourages and has clubs dedicated to volunteering in the community. We also moved school buildings in 2016, so the school now has lockers and digital clocks. To enroll you have to write a short essay, but its not difficult. Anyway you should go to HP if you have the chance! 15 Sep. 2016 -A Student

This is a great place to learn, mature and participate in school and community activities. My son has so enjoyed the relationships he has been able to make with teachers during his high school years. Having the same caring teachers for four years did wonders for him. He is now prepared for anything life may throw at him. Parents who make the effort to partner with this school will be greatly rewarded.

My family has been dealing with HP for the past two years, and have never been more disappointed with a school, or a district, ever. The administration at the school are mostly rude and short, and it is hard to get anything accomplished. Phone calls are not returned and the fact that they have a principal, a VP and a dean of students and still can't run a school well should tell you something.

My daughter is in 6th grade and it is her first year. The school seems very disorganized and staffs/teachers are poorly guided. It seems there seriously lack communication and do not even respond to parents' calls. I am going to wait to see how the rest of this year goes and if it continues like this, I am definitely putting my daughter in another school. It just seems there is no pride in quality of education and mentoring students. Perhaps their focus is more on older students in high school...I am not sure. It has been very disappointing dealing with them as it seems they do not take responsibility. I plan on bringing this to the principal's attention to see how she handles. - a very concerned parent

i went to Harrison prep during 7th grade and sense i moved to fort belvoir in Virginia because of being in the military i miss the teachers that helped me during school and after school i also miss the students.I liked how the teachers helped when you were failing classes by explaining it better.i think Harrison prep should be a little bigger and have locker rooms and only have 6-12 grade because everyone got along better and just adding like kids will be very distracting because of the screaming and etc.... this school is the best out of all schools i have been to.i wish it didn't have to changes.

I am not sure what Harrison the other people are talking about here but our experience with Harrison has been lack luster, The Principal is rude and unengaged and the teachers are for the most part awful. My daugheter's test scores and gpa have plummetted due the lack of teaching. They are disorganized and horrible to work with. If you complain then they take it out on your student. Diligently looking for another school for my child to attend!!! 6th grade was a waste of time..I only pray that it is not too late to get my child back on track!
