Harrison is fortunate to be home to an outstanding public school system. Harrison School District currently serves nearly 3,000 students throughout the city on seven campuses. The award-winning District maintains four elementary schools, one middle school, one junior high school and one high school, plus the Harrison Alternative School (K-12) for those requiring an alternative environment while learning. The middle school is the newest addition to the District’s facilities, having opened its doors in 2005.

The use of technology in the schools has increased over the years, and today, the District operates approximately 825 computer systems—making the computer-to-student ratio 1:3. All of the classrooms and labs within the District’s facilities are connected to the Internet, plus each of its media centers encompasses “mini-lab” capabilities.
