    Pros

    Harpool Middle is awesome. We have a great staff culture an an amazing administrative team. Our principal makes the whole day easier.

    Cons

    Harpool is in a "wealthy" area. If you can deal with parents emailing daily, you should be fine. Unfortunately benefits are based on state pay and aren't great.
