Principal Jamelia Oliver's Message

Harrison Elementary opened its doors in the fall of 1964 to the families moving into a small group of homes just being built in the orange groves. In the dedication document, the school board stated, “In the dedication of this beautiful new school, may we acknowledge our responsibilities to provide an equal opportunity for all children. May this school and its staff encourage every pupil to learn: Respect for others; Obedience to law; Mastery of self; and Joy in service.” Although the number of buildings that make up the school has increased, our society has changed, and the trees have grown mature and tall, the Harrison community wants similar things for our children today. 

Today Harrison teachers, parents, and students work together to provide a respectful and caring community where we can achieve a goal of 100% of our 6th grade students proficient in the standards as they leave Harrison. The expectation at Harrison is that all of our students will be prepared to be successful throughout their school careers. Our purpose as a school community is to train Harrison students to succeed educationally as they move from Harrison Elementary School to RUSD's middle and high schools.
