Harrison Street School has been the only public school in Geneva's east side since 1928. The elementary school…More underwent life-safety remodeling in 2009-10, and is now a beautiful facility, with large classrooms, art and computer rooms, and a small TV studio, where students project morning announcements.
Shonette Sims is Harrison's new principal, beginning with the 2010-11 school year.
"People aren't just showing up with textbooks, they're showing up with rakes or computers to help make the school better," Sims said. "Harrison is one of the more established schools in the district, and it has a wonderful sense of history and tradition."
