    I only gave four stars right now because it has been some time since I've had anything to do with Harrison Hill. My daughter attended there beginning 2008-2009 when we moved to Indianapolis and finished there in 2009-2010 when we moved to a different part of Lawrence Township. While all things have their ups and downs pros and cons... I am very much satisfied with Lawrence Township in general. One thing about this site is that it really can only give you stats without personal input from individuals like me. Those stats don't tell you how hard the Township works at keeping open communication with parents; the dedication I've seen from any of the staff I've dealt with; as well as the hard work they put into keeping performing arts in the system while so many others have done away with them. I LOVE Lawrence Township and my daughter has loved her schools and the great majority of her teachers (now in High School). This site simply does not do them justice.

    I have seen wonderful things from Harrison Hill. I wholeheartedly believe that the Harrison Hill teachers are the hardest working teachers anywhere! Thank you HH teachers for your dedication and love. You are truly called to do what you do!

    I think harrison hill is a very good school my child is learning a lot in this school I am very sorry that this is her last year there she talks highly of her teacher Ms. Rutherford she has been a good role model for Cassie this year she is a very kind teacher never disrespectful toward this parent and my daughter really enjoys going to school now she likes school so much that she even plays school when school is out in the evening at home. I appreciate the effect that Harrison Hill has had on my child this year. Thank you for all your work and effort Ms. Rutherford. Sincerely Yours Angelle Akers parent of Cassandra Akers

    I believe the principal does a great job interacting with the students and their parents. This school has many opportunities for our young children to succeed in more than just academics. Many thanks goes out to Harrison Hill Elementary.
