The most important endeavor in any community is the cooperative effort of parents, community members, and educators to ensure the best possible education of its children. The teacherís responsibility is to guide each child in mastering the fundamental tools of learning to the fullest extent of that childís ability. The parentsí responsibility is to take an active role in the schooling process and to support it financially and morally.
Educational experiences should provide the opportunity for the most complete physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, moral, social and intellectual growth possible. The skills, habits and attitudes developed by the children from these experiences should prepare them to live successfully in the world of today and tomorrow.
This purposeful growth is directed by stressing the studentsí responsibility, as well as their rights as citizens in our democracy. The educational process employed by the Harrison Schools attempts to enhance each childís development, thus being able as a well-adjusted human being, to thrive within our community, our nation and the world.
