Principal's Message



I am extremely honored to be serving as the principal of Harrison Elementary. I am pleased to be part of a faculty and community that is committed to providing the best education for every child in a safe and nurturing environment. I look forward to a continued partnership with staff and community this 2019-2020 school year as we continue building on the academic successes and further preparing our students development as 21st Century learners.


Harrison is a Prek-8th grade elementary school, in North Pomona.  Our teaching and learning is focused on meeting and exceeding the California Common Core Standards for every child. It is our belief that varied levels of instruction provide a framework to challenge every student.


It is our intention for each one of our students to leave Harrison prepared for higher education, equipped with critical thinking skills and empowered with a love for learning.


I am excited to partner with Harrison's PTSA organization  and the strong group of parents, guardians, grandparents and extended families who make up our community. We welcome volunteers in our classrooms, activities, and programs. Our teachers invite ongoing communication with families and my door is always open. I appreciate your input and look forward to working with you and your child(ren) in these very important first years of school.
