Governor's Distinguished Improvement Award &
2014 High School Academic Growth Award
The Colorado Department of Education celebrated the 2014 district and school performance results in an awards ceremony on December 2, 2014 at the Colorado Department of Education.
Harrison High School received The Governor's Distinguished Improvement Award. These awards are given to schools that demonstrate excellent student growth. On the school performance framework that is used by the state to evaluate schools, these schools "exceed" expectations on the indicator related to longitudinal academic growth over three years. Harrison High School also received the 2014 High School Academic Growth Award which recognizes high schools that demonstrate the highest levels of student academic growth in reading, writing and math.
We are so proud that our community has been acknowledged for their great achievements from the state of Colorado. Congratulations everyone!

Colorado Schools Report Card
The Colorado Report Card was generated in 2010 in an effort to inform parents about how schools are performing across the state. As you know, Colorado is a 'choice' state; therefore many parents refer to this report when making decisions about where to send their kids to school. The information is generated from CDE's School Performance Frameworks. We are excited to see the growth that has taken place at HHS over the past four years.
2010 - 250 out of approximately 425 schools
2011 - 196 out of approximately 425 schools
2012 - 159 out of approximately 425 schools
2013 - 59 out of 429 schools
Our grade is now a B!
