“As Harrison special educators, we provide quality educational and support services to students with disabilities to promote the acquisition of academic, behavioral, and social skills. We believe students respond to high, yet attainable, expectations expressed through IEP goals and objectives. Our students know serving them was our first choice, and they are exceptional Goblins!” - Brigid Bright
