Harding Elementary School Reviews
I have no respect for this teachers and staff at Harding Elementary. My niece is in K-5 and is constantly coming home from school crying because children spit on her, kick and hit her. She reports the incidents to the teachers and in the words of my 5 year old niece "the problem was not resolved". My sister is currently in the process of trying to switch her to South-East or South-West. Last year my niece also attend their K-4 program and had to deal with the children bullying her through the whole year. By the end of the year, she started having behavioral problems and started lashing out at the other children. The teacher assumed there was something going on at home but the child was fed up with being picked on, she started flipping out which also caused behavioral problems at home as well. Harding is turning into Northwest. The teachers do not care and the children are not being raised right, in turn they are horribly behaved and do not care either. I would not recommend this school for any child.
I have very high praise for the staff and teachers of Harding Elementary. A recent incident in which my niece was level-headed and calm was a direct result of the lesson which her teachers, taught her. She was accompanying her Grandmother, when she fell and Nevaeh Burgos remembering her instruction was quick to react and have help come
to their aid. In the accident her action was so commendable, that her family and extended family are very proud of her. She is very excited about her being praised, and we all know that Harding Elementary would be too. So thank you and your staff for instilling in your students, responsibility and the right action to take in helping others, true citizenship, sense of caring and of community. God Bless You All.
