G W Harby J High School Ratings & Reviews
Teachers are very personable and on spot with the students. The years my son has attended, I have never been disappointed.
When my son started their in 6th grade he was bullied continuously and the counselor minimized it said "that it's not considered bullying unless it's repetitive" So the kids who beat him up got a way with it since it only happened once. Now my son doesn't tell anyone when kids push him around because it won't do any good. Now he's in 7th grade and is being bullied by a girl who is so full of hate she wrote an essay about how much she HATES my son in her Pre-AP English class and was complimented by the teacher on how awesome her essay was after all the students were allowed to read and take pictures of the essay. Now the essay is being circulated around the school and everyone is teasing him about it. I HATE HARBY AND THE ADMINISTRATION IS COMPLETELY CARELESS ABOUT THEIR STUDENTS.
My eldest child attends Harby. My child is in the Pre-AP program and is doing very well. He is challenged by the curriculum, and his teachers are attentive to his needs and to my concerns. The current principal is an exceptional leader and role model for the students. She obviously cares a great deal about her students, and the kids respond to her. I am very happy with the education my child is receiving at Harby. He has had a wonderful junior-high experience and actually looks forward to going to school. The extracurricular activities are also varied and provide him with many fun, educational experiences. For any parent reading these reviews and who are concerned with those reviews that mention bullying as a problem, please realize that those reviews were written when Harby had a different principal and different leadership. The current administration is wonderful!
My daughter is attending here as well. We moved here from out if state and she has been bullied since her second day. The teachers don't remove her they turn a blind eye and pretend they don't see it or hear it. Not sure what is worse :(
My son went here for 6th and 7th grade. He was also bullied by students and two teachers. Like a pp said, he was isolated and blamed for being bullied. He transferred to another Alvin school for 8th grade and was much more successful. AISD needs to clean house at Harby and hire teachers and staff that care about their students.
