  • Wow can't believe this school still exists I attended this school in 1976-1977 it was a horrible school then sounds like it hasn't changed the teachers didn't seem to care back then and the principle at the time still believed in spanking with a wooden ruler how far we've come from that one I'd rather give this a -1 apple but since I have to give it a rating I'm being generous

  • Harder Elementary, used to be a GREAT school!! However it is now a school of segregation and discrimination... They need to come together as a community for the sake of the children as well as to build a strong foundation for the community.

  • A serious look needs to be taken at this school. The students are out of control! Teachers are not trained to handle such students. I recommend counselors be brought in for students. There are many programs that also can be effective in traing that starts in Kindergarten for children to learn control and getting along with other children. PLEASE HELP THIS SCHOOL!!
