    Overall Experience: My overall experience of school was great, every teachers were helpful and always willing to help you learn. They always try their best to make you a better person and have a successful further. If I could do it all again, I would still choose the same school due to the positivity everyone gives.

    Academics: Harding gives out condoms and birth control. Even though we have a daycare attached to our school, you will see a lot of teen moms.
