Message from the School

At C.W. Harris Elementary School we strive to make our school a safe learning environment where student academic achievement is supported by all stakeholders. We envision a school where our students are self-motivated, where families are viewed as partners in the education of their children and where learning is meaningful, rigorous and fun. We aim to inspire the conscienceless and social responsibility of our students so that they acquire skills and experiences to make a positive impact on the world.
