Welcome to Harrison County Schools!

On behalf of Harrison County Schools, I would like to welcome everyone to the 2016-2017 school year.  The start of a new school calendar is yet another opportunity to witness how everyone comes together and works so diligently to support the education of our children here in Harrison County. I applaud the efforts of our students, staff, parents and community partners as we work together to focus on improving student learning in this district.

Please know our staff in this district will continue to work hard for the children of Harrison County. We are striving to be a top district in this state. With the continued support of all our stakeholders, I know we will reach our goal!

I cordially invite you to visit our schools and see the wonderful things that are happening there. Our district employees go above and beyond to ensure the children of Harrison County have an appealing, clean, and safe environment for learning. We want you to share in our students’ achievements throughout this school year. Our entire team - teachers, support staff, and administration - is excited for the educational opportunities that await our students this year!

As we embrace a new school year, there is excitement about the potential it holds. I am honored to be a part of the educational endeavors in Harrison County Schools. It is my privilege to work with such a great group of people who continually strive toward being a “Model of Opportunity” for every student in this district!

Michael Phelps (most decorated Olympian in history; 23 titles and 28 medals!)  It is interesting to note that Michael Phelps started swimming at age 7 in an effort to direct his excess energy after being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder.  This just serves as a reminder that when faced with a roadblock – stay positive and find a way around it. You never know where it will lead you!
