Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harrison District Curriculum
The high school math curriculum includes an in depth study of algebra. Students work with equations and inequalities, learning how to solve both with just one variable. Learners also work with systems of equations and learn how to represent and solve inequalities in graphical form. To describe numbers or relationships, students also learn how to create equations of their own. Arithmetic with rational expressions and polynomials is explored as well.
Students in Harrison learn about health, wellness, and physical fitness as part of the physical education curriculum. The elementary school curriculum focuses on fostering the development of both fine and gross motor skills. Students participate in a variety of games and sports that facilitate these skills, such as throwing, catching, and kicking a ball, balancing on a beam, and learning basic movements required for sports performance.

Chalk Talk: Why History Is Important
Sometimes students misunderstand history as something that happened long ago that no longer impacts how we live today. Yet, that is not the case. By studying history, students gain insight into the short-term and long-term effects of historical events. With this perspective, history students develop a better understanding of how the present is a reflection of the past. Studying history also provides a framework within which students can make sense of the world and reflect on how things came to be. The cultural awareness that comes with studying history is also quite valuable. Particularly in today’s highly globalized world, having an understanding of other people is a critical skill. Students that study history also learn about people and events that inspire them to be better citizens and make a positive impact on the world in which they live.
