    The teachers at Harper really care about these kids and I love the fact they keep me informed about my child.

    I moved my 3 children from Jerger to Harper because the teachers are excellent and care about the students. The administration fully supports and motivates the teachers and students are held accountable for their actions. It was no surprise to me that there are few discipline problems because the students really want to be there and know their teacher cares about them.
