    North Harrison Middle School is a great school to go to. Our teachers are very hard-working and are always trying new ways to help their students learn. A lot of teachers make school seem fun. Our school has very good sports teams such as the marching band the cheerleading squad the track team and many others. Our school has a very nice band program that is better than any I've ever seen or heard of. The school lunches are healthy and delicious. There are many class options to choose from. I love our school North Harrison Middle School.

    This school NHMS has a lot of problems in particular BULLYING that is sometimes even administer by teachers! Just check out story on channel 3 news! Would love to see this school turn things around but needs a lot of work!

    North Harrison needs to focus more on the well being of the students and stop worrying so much about what is the more money effeciant thing to do. The security cameras are a joke. Take the recent incident in the middle school. Who are they protecting their reputation or the students.

    This school gives great learning opportunities and opens a new era of things to explore and learn from it has a wonderful learning atmosphere and is a great place to send children even their elementary school and their upper elementary school and also their high school. I went there for only a year and a half but I learned more there and different things there than I will ever know and evem attempt to know here in Russellville and North Harrison even offers more electives and has an overall better review than most schools from grade school and up.
