Student Profile

Our Students

Children who come to The Harris School have experienced social/emotional difficulty in previous school or social settings. Some challenges may include anxiety, attention issues, mood disorders or neurological disorders. (See the links below.) They typically have average to above average intelligence but have a hard time performing well in school and forming relationships with others.

Our Graduates

Our goal is to equip studnets with coping strategies, new patterns of thinking and a more positive attitude as well as help them transition into a more mainstream, academic setting. Each year, approximately 1/3 of The Harris School’s students are able to transition based on the following measurable goals:

  • Work collaboratively with others in a variety of settings
  • Complete a school day without a major behavioral or emotional interruption
  • Communicate feelings and needs to others
  • “Move on” and recover when faced with challenges
  • Perform on-level academically
