Experience the power of public education.
Welcome to the Harris Elementary Website! I am truly honored to work with great students, staff, and parents. At Harris, our motto is “Every Student Matters, Every Moment Counts!” It is through this lens that we strive to provide each student with the quality education that he or she deserves.
Harris Elementary is a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) school. Our school-wide expectations are: Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be Ready to Learn. We teach and model these expectations throughout the year. We also celebrate and acknowledge those who meet our school’s expectations.
A school with a rich history, Harris Elementary can best be described as a welcoming and caring neighborhood school located in the heart of McAlmont. Once known as Pulaski County Training School, the facility originally served high school students. In 1963 the school was renamed Harris High School in honor of Viola Harris a former administrator. With the desegregation of schools in Arkansas, Harris High School closed in 1970 and reopened as Harris Elementary School. Today Harris Elementary proudly serves students in Pre-K through 5th grade.

Where Every Student Matters, and Every Moment Counts!
