Impacting the lives of students one individual at a time.

Impacting the lives of students one individual at a time.

It was once stated, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Harper, Texas is the epitome of the “village” (community and school) all taking interest and responsibility for educating leaders of tomorrow. As one might imagine in a small town, parental and community support and involvement is a contributing factor to student involvement and success. Parents encourage their children to be actively involved in their own education and to participate in a variety of extracurricular and community activities. This tight link between the community and school fosters district and student accomplishments.

Harper Middle School (HMS) places a high importance on its students' growth and success, not only in the academic setting, but in all facets of education.The students of HMS are offered a wide range of opportunities outside of the classroom. HMS students can be found participating in various school events, as well as participating in community organizations, from 4-H to church groups. The guidance and discipline the students learn outside of the classroom in these various activities only fosters the education provided within the four walls of the classrooms, helping to create a well-rounded student, ready for the next phases in life.

Success is a shared commitment. Stakeholders acknowledge that in order for students to achieve their optimal potential, educators must never succumb to the status quo. Harper Middle School strives to educate students comprehensively, while intentionally keeping an open eye to the needs of students, families, and staff.
