    Welcome to Harlan!  We have a strong, dedicated staff and parent community that supports our students to thrive both academically and socially. Our classrooms are filled with students exploring researching, and learning at high levels. Character education is taught through student leadership opportunities, classroom communities and family group called "Husky Packs." At Harlan, we want students to feel excited about school and willing to take learning risks.
    With divergent instruction, we meet the unique needs of all students. Our classrooms consist of leveled libraries, accelerated mathematics opportunities, and the latest technology. At Harlan, parents volunteer daily and are an integral part of the school process. We view school as a partnership that would not be successful without open communication between school and home.

    Our philosophy: provide an educational setting in which all students are challenged and accelerated at an appropriate pace. Although, we are considered one of the leading schools in the state, we are always seeking to improve. It is our sincere desire to work as a community to prepare the students of Harlan for a global society.
    Together we will continue to make Harlan a success!
