Harrison Township School is a kindergarten through third grade facility with over 850 students. In addition to the K-3 configuration, the school also has a pre-school handicapped program. Our goal is to provide all children with the opportunity to develop their intellectual, physical, emotional and social potential and to become confident, capable, life-long learners. To accomplish this goal, our school has exemplary programs in literacy, mathematics and special education.
The staff at Harrison Township is dedicated to our students and strives to provide instruction that enables them to meet their fullest potential. Over 70 professional staff members and 40 support staff members work together to deliver instruction and programs that are research- and standards-based.
Harrison Township School utilizes a balanced literacy approach and has been successful in meeting the needs of all learners. Students benefit from shared reading, guided reading, writer’s workshop and Reading Assist strategies. The teachers use several diagnostic tools to gather data on the progression of the young readers in order to provide prescriptive instruction that meets their individual needs.
The Everyday Math Program is entering the fifteenth year of implementation. Our students continue to experience success through critical thinking and problem solving. Students work in small cooperative groups to practice their skills and receive instruction.
Our special education programs continue to expand and have proven to be very successful. Harrison Township School supports special education programs that include pre-school disabled, multi-systems disorders and multi-disabled classes. Our school continues to include our special needs student in the general education program successfully, with inclusion at every grade level.
Our parents are our partners in reaching our goals. They volunteer in the classrooms, are members of the PTA, and play an active role on district committees. Through the collaboration and cooperation of the PTA, local government officials, police and fire departments, local businesses, senior groups and neighboring schools, Harrison Township School continues to grow and provide an excellent educational experience for the children of this community.
