Open Quote Although this is my first year at Harrison, I have, so far, enjoyed my experience there. They have very good teachers that are definitely determined to help their students pass their classes and graduate to college. The fine arts program is very fun. I'm actually in the orchestra and its very fun and it can help you get into certain colleges. Lastly, and honestly my favorite part of this school, the clubs! These clubs are another thing that can give you college credit(depending on the college you are trying to get into). There's many clubs and it is hard to not find one that you are interested in. So yeah. that's what I think about Harrison. Parents, if your choosing whether to enroll your child here, take my advice and do it. GO HOYAS!!! Close Quote

Open Quote I have a Freshman at Harrison High School, and it has been a very positive experience. The academics are superior, the athletic program is excellent as well l as the Band/Arts Curriculum. My child participates in them all. I would like a bit more diversity but that comes with the territory. Overall, Excellent. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
