The Georgia Department of Education and State Superintendent Richard Woods recently recognized schools across the state for Advanced Placement Honor Schools. We have listed Harrison's categories below. This recognition is a testament to the hard work of our students and teachers. With close to 95% of our students attending college and the admissions process becoming more competitive each year, we want to make sure our Hoyas are prepared by taking challenging courses. Congratulations to our students and teachers for their hard work!
