About Harrison

  • Proudly serving more than 2,600 students, the Harrison School District is Building The Future: Every Learner, Every Way, Every Day.

     

    Headquartered in beautiful Harrison, Arkansas, the district's boundaries stretch more than 200 square miles throughout Boone and Newton counties. The City of Harrison is home to about 13,000 people, with many more living in surrounding rural communities.

     

    From preschool to high school, Harrison students are taught a diverse, challenging curriculum by experienced and compassionate teachers who are committed to preparing students for success in a modern world. Our three elementary schools and middle school are some of the state's highest performing, while the high school offers many classes for college credit and a wide range of extracurricular activities like robotics, theater and student council.

     

    Our 17 varsity athletic teams are frequent competitors in postseason tournaments and have won multiple state titles. With newly renovated sports facilities, like the beautiful Goblin Arena and F.S. Garrison Stadium, the Goblins are poised to compete at the top of their conference for years to come.

     

    Outside of school, students and their families can take advantage of a host of entertainment and recreational activities. The magnificent Buffalo National River is just a few miles south of Harrison and offers some of the best canoeing in mid-America for experts and novices. To the northeast, huge Bull Shoals and Norfork lakes and the famous White River offer some of the best fishing in the United States. 

     

    Nicknamed the “Hub of the Ozarks,” Harrison is also short, scenic drive from major cities like Fayetteville and Little Rock. Just over the state line is one of the nation’s top vacation destinations, Branson, Missouri, which boats an incredible array of live stage shows and world-class theme and water parks.
