    The school is making positive changes and wants to work with the community and neighborhood to make it a better place!!

    I have two kids attending Harrison Hill and there are a few things I would like to see change in but my boys like it. They are both doing great on their grades. I do know that you can't please everyone. GO HAWKS!

    Based on my experience my child teacher /parent communication is not good. I never got a parent teacher conference for my child after serveral calls to the school.

    This is not the best school. The staff and students are out of control. I enrolled my son here and pulled him out of the school within two weeks. The staff is useless and expects children to know all the rules without anyone telling him. The students have to walk down the hall with their hands behing there back. If you want your child in a ghetto school and dont care about there education this is the school for them.
