    As a parent who has had three children in this school and throughout this school district I can honestly say that I love this school. The faculty and administration and terrific the parents and involved and concerned and above all the curriculum and programs are outstanding. The absolutely only criticism I have is that in the Pickerington Local School District the formal sports program is way different than what I am used to. Having to go away from the schools into a private group (PYAA) until the junior high level is weird to me. I came up in the Catholic School System where sports conditioning and competition started in 4th grade! My husband and I were forced to move two years ago but when we did we sacrificed to make sure our kids would stay in the Pickerington Local School District and specifically the schools they were already attending.

    I would have to rate this school as excellent! My son went here in 6th grade. He loved his teachers which made for his good overall experience. He hated to leave. Believe me when your child likes his teachers that is more than 50% of the battle!

    My son and daughter have been through this middle school. Very excellent staff and teachers. The teachers are willing to work with the students if you contact them. Curriculum is challenging enough ;and the standardized testing scores are high. The Principle is helpful. Very good experience at Harmon Middle School.

    I think harmon middle school is a great school.It has great teachers who dont push too hard and dont lay off to much. My child comes home with great grades but sometimes not so good.These teachers really help my child. i help my child with homework that they cant do.I think that itt is great that kids can get into their favorite specil after school. Again i think this school is great and i aprove so much about it.
