The school's music and drama programs are very successful, especially the marching band whom is known nationally. I have been there all 4 years and I have had no problems with the school to an extent. Most teachers truly care even though they don't seem like it. Counselors are excellent in helping with the students and you will get the most out of it if you get to know them. I was nominated and won a scholarship thanks to my counselor. As for bullies and other issues, it really depends on who you hang out with. Find the right people and you should be fine.
Horrible high school experience for any student that does not fit the "perfect" mold. Students... bully children that are not "like them". A few teachers there should not even be allowed near children. The school has a serious problem with drugs on campus. We are going to move just so my youngest does not have to attend Harrison.
