Harper is an elementary building that serves children from Kindergarten through fourth grade. Harper enrolls approximately 435 students. Harper provides students with a warm, nurturing environment that focuses on the social, emotional, and academic development of all children. The majority of our students have attended at least two years of preschool before beginning kindergarten, and our students consistently score well on national, state, and local assessments. Within the building we offer a team of related arts teachers (PE, library, music, art, technology, Spanish), as well as learning behavior specialists,  speech pathologists, a school psychologist, school social worker, an occupational therapist, a differentiation support teacher, reading teachers, and an English language teacher, and more. These positions are in place to ensure that we are meeting the needs of all the children in the building.

Our PTO is our partner in education. Through countless hours of volunteer work and fund raising (IGNITE), the PTO helps support a variety of programs and activities such as Book Fairs, Junior Great Books, Student Council, Yearbook, Before School Chorus, Civics and Safety, Harper Hoedown and Environmental Awareness. Additionally, the PTO funds and organizes the Student Enrichment Program which supports the curriculum by giving students the opportunity for field trips, guest speakers, and fine arts performances. We, as a school, are very thankful for the efforts of our PTO. These enrichment activities have a significant impact on the educational experience of Harper students.

Our MISSION STATEMENT is as follows:

Harper School is dedicated to creating a climate that meets the needs of all children
and helps them to become successful and responsible lifelong learners.
