  • The school's music and drama programs are very successful, especially the marching band whom is known nationally. I have been there all 4 years and I have had no problems with the school to an extent. Most teachers truly care even though they don't seem like it. Counselors are excellent in helping with the students and you will get the most out of it if you get to know them. I was nominated and won a scholarship thanks to my counselor. As for bullies and other issues, it really depends on who you hang out with. Find the right people and you should be fine.

  • Harrison has a great offering of AP and Honors classes. The teachers are very involved and genuinely care about the students. There are great extracurriculars - model UN, mock trial, language clubs, etc. as well as a full slate of music and sports opportunities. It has the normal high school problems, just like any other high school, but my child will leave this school prepared for college and life with a superior education.

  • This school is pretty decent and teachers can be nice. Though there are always the bad eggs but that isn't unusual in most schools anyway. Excellent Music programs and a excellent marching band. Everything bad about it that others say, it is usually the people you hang out with. So I recommend they hang our with the right people and they should be fine.

  • Constant bullying, snobby students and teachers. Known around the area for having a drug problem. No good activities unless you play sports.
