    I agree with the prior review which shows that the faculty and administrators have very poor conflict resolution skills. My son attended this school for two years. He was not only 4.0 had 99% ITBS (near perfect score) all around athlete strong volunteer in the community and all around honest child. The faculty did not select him for the Chargers of the Roundtable Honor Society even though the principal presented said awardees/inductees as being the "best of the crop students/ The top students" . They were very evasive. I attended the award ceremony. it's a teacher's pet society

    Harding is great!!!! Teachers and fellow students are wonderful. Teachers know what they teach and all the academics are very good. They are PACTS for the advanced students if they do well in school or district testing etc. For the honor roll if you do good like a 4.0 3.5-3.95 or 3.0 -3.5 your name is on the harding page. As for the Chargers for the Round Table. Its not the students that do good in school or so... Its the caring honest MOST helpful students.

    Very good school its better than most of them. Think about this. Your lucky your in this school. There other schools out there maybe that aren't as great. Don't criticize so much and take it for granted. Be thankful for this pretty good school.

    I thought that Harding did not have that large of a variety for education. When my daughter went there it was like nothing challenged her at all. I think that you should sincerly think about a different school.
