The Prom Promise is becoming a life-saving tradition and I think every school is adopting it. In essence, it's a promise that students make to their friends, family, and school where they commit not to drink and drive. It makes students aware that there are consequences to decisions they make after leaving prom. We will not have the typical prom promise assembly but we will have a week dedicated to raising awareness of drugs and alcohol. Click here for each day's activity. 


Volleyball Tryouts for the 2014-2015 school years are April 28- April 29 in the Harrison Central High School gym. Contact Coach Amanda Harrelson for details.

ACT 2012-2013
Welcome to Harrison Central High

HCHS Students are College and Career Ready!

Our mission with Harrison Central High School is to instill in our students the desire to perform at their highest potential by holding them Accountable to our Expectations to achieve the highest Results within the community.


Harrison Central High School serves 1622 students, ninth to twelfth grade, through 144 dedicated faculty members. It offers its students a state of the art learning environment with Internet access in all classrooms so all students can become part of the global society. Most classrooms have four computers for students to use during the school day. Students have access to a fully automated library and media center as well. A variety of educational programs such as after-school tutoring, Enrichment courses, and online curricula provide students with a wealth of opportunity to excel and achieve. Each teacher can better meet student needs as well with data warehousing resources developed by district personnel. These resources allow teachers to profile the past performance of a student and better meet the specific needs of the individual student.  


Student learning is the chief priority for the school, and all students are capable of learning. 

      • Because students learn in different ways, teachers should utilize a variety of teaching methods.
      • Students should assume personal responsibility in the learning process.
      • The school’s curriculum must continuously improve if students are to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners.
      • Through cooperation among administrators, teachers, students, parents, and community, the school’s mission advances.
      • A safe and orderly school climate is conducive to student learning.   
Harrison County Technology Center DECA (An Association of Marketing Students) chapter traveled to Jones Junior College to compete with close to 300 DECA members from District 4 and 5 at this years’ DECA District Competition.  Each student took a 100 question test in their event and role-played how they would solve a problem or handle a real world company situation while meeting marketing indicators with judges.  All the students from Harrison Central and West Harrison did an outstanding job of representing their chapter and schools.  The first through sixth place winners will now be preparing to compete at the DECA State Career Development Conference Competition in Jackson, MS Feb. 23-26, 2014.

Harrison County School District

(Part A: No Child Left Behind Act of 2001)

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires school districts to publish report cards containing certain information. The required information falls into three general areas: school improvement, teacher qualifications, and test data. A school that fails to make adequate yearly progress in achievement must be identified for school improvement. The report must contain information about the professional qualifications of teachers in core academic subject areas [English, reading, language arts, science, mathematics, foreign languages, arts, civics and government, economics, history and geography]. Highly qualified teachers are those who satisfied the NCLB criteria during the school year. The report must also contain achievement data for specific subgroups, two-year achievement trends and student participation rates.

Please contact the principal of your child's school if you have questions about this report.
