    Dear Parents Harrington is a great school. Before sending my daughter there I researched the school to look at performance test percentages teacher-student ratios and the promotion rate of students. I was impressed to know this since I was a student of Harrington myself. I am glad my daughter also has an opportunity to attend this school. Harrington has a long tradition of quality education experienced teachers and well performing students. The school community is safe and accessible to public transportation. Many parents bring their kids in the morning. There are also crossing guards and supportive bus services to keep children safe. The teachers are expert level and extremely involved in student progress. Harrington also has an array of extra curricular activities to help children succeed. These programs prepare students for a strong background in the arts; including music drawing literature and visual arts. Harrington helps build reading math science and social studies skills.
