School Reviews

5.0  8/30/2014
Harvey is an incredible school! Students are able to dabble in a variety of activities from sports to the arts, an interesting array of course offerings and the attention of a very talented and devoted teaching and administrative staff. Parents are active and involved and the school has a number of family programs throughout the year. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Harvey is the ability of a student to be both a "jock" and a "theater kid" and be accepted on all levels.
