Harding Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

Harding is a great school. Test scores have never been stellar but as a parent with two children at the school, this does not concern me because my kids are getting what they need--a rigorous academic program, art, music, hands-on science enrichment, a great after school program that includes tennis, drama, some second language offerings, and arts/crafts.

There is a brand new state-of-the-art building with gorgeous classrooms and a very active parent community that provides funds for field trips, assemblies, community building activities, and classroom supplies.
