There are are a lot of great things about this school and then there are not so great things. let me start with the great things... the school staff is very Friendly and are quick to responses to any concerns you may have with your child. I love the commmunty based preschool that they have and I feel they have really helped my child grow. However when it comes to a child with more difficult learning difficulties I feel they lack the support needed for that child in the older grades 1-5. My Child has struggle in school and has a IEP but continues to fail and fall short Academically. It is sad as a parent to see your child struggle in school and have to push for testing to be done.

My three sons have attended the early preschool/preschool program that Harney offers. If you child needs one on one time and is a special needs child this school is wonderful. They work with each child on their own where the teachers can make sure they are learning and understanding what is being touch. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The program offers morning and afternoon based on age. I would recommended this school.
My son attends Kindergarten here. He enjoys his experience however I don't think he is being challenged enough. He attended a local preschool which taught him many of the things he is currently being taught. Lesson plans need to be individualized instead of giving the exact same material to all the kids.
