    I think north harrison teachers/board are to worried and focus on giving or not giving out new contracts to their teachers to focus on our childrens education. Lets not forget the few teachers who really do care and are giving their all those too are the ones that are suffering.

    I am a freshman at NHHS and i have to say that i love it as well as all of my friends. Although it could improve so can everywhere else! I have talked to many people who have moved here and they almost always say that this is the best school that they have ever been to. I love our charicter education program and hope that the good work of this school continues

    This school district places far too much emphasis on punishment they teach to the classroom & not to the student and when a student shows individuality that is inconsistent with their idea of what 'norm' is they label the child as bad and try to squash their 'light'.

    I am extremely happy with the acedemic level I am at because of North Harrison High Schools wonderful staff. I am a junior here and I have had my fair share of bad schools an NHHS is not one of them. I also wanted to comment on the new character ed program It's great! I enjoy every bit of character traits being inforced.
