  • Increase stakeholder satisfaction and opportunities for involvement.


  • Advanced Placement Exams

    Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Harrison High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.
