    Harding elementary has provided my children with great education for the past 10 years and i LOVE this school very much. the focus well in academics and have great after school programs. Its nice to pick up my kids after school with out the stress of helping them out with their homework. 5/5 for me D

    This is my sons first year here. He is in the 2nd grade. He has been home schooled. He has been here for a month and they decide to move him to another . They had an overpopulation of children and had a bunch of split classes so some children had to move after a month. Maybe that's okay for a kid who knows the school and has friends not so cool for a kid just finding his way. Today I find out that the math t.a let me adjusting son know that if he didn't speed it up on his math work she was going to rip his paper. I'm furious. I have no kind words for this school at this point. I hope it changes.

    my school is first in education even wit the cut backs. They take pride teaching the kids to always have a positive attitude and to help one another. They could always use help with the needs but they do very very well with what the city allows them. I am very proud to be a Harding grandparent / PTG member.

    Hands down A great School! Mr. Clark is an incredible Principle with a knack of getting children to want to go to school. I will say that parent involvement is not where it should be but never the less the Staff does a great job. The consideration to safety such as child drop off & pickup is a prime example of the schools devotion to the children. I have 2 more years till my daughters leave there but I know they will leave well prepared for the next steps in their education.

    This is my first experience in dealing with a public school as my children have always attended private school. So far I am very pleased with the involvment of the teachers and especially the principal Mr. Clark in providing each child with the best education possible. Also the office staff is very pleasant and professional.

    I appreciate Harding's involvement and patience in assisting all children including those with special needs. We have three sons here now and we have been very pleased with Harding's teaching staff most recently Mrs. Morrison & Mrs. Van as well as that of administration. I'm confident Mr. Clark will continue on with the well being education and safety of our kids at heart. Thank you ALL you're awesome!

    Academics are over all well structured. Unfortunatley they do not offer a selection of after school activities that all children need and there isn't a lot of parent involvment. The school's staff does try to get the parents invlovment but the parents choose not to. I like Harding for the school itslef but the students famliy needs to be more involved.

    Harding is an excellent school. My son had 2 very fine teachers Mrs. Vaughn & Mrs.Jordan in the 3hears he attended. I feel that the school is trying very hard to give the kids a quality education in a nice environment. Keep it up!
