On November 8th in Washington DC, the United States Department of Education and Secretary Besty DeVos presented the National Blue Ribbon School Award to Harrisburg High School, SciTech Campus for being an "Exemplary High Performing School."

In addition to Harrisburg's SciTech Campus, 
348 schools across America were recognized as National Blue Ribbon Schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. 

‪Please join us in celebrating this PROUD and HISTORIC honor for our District and City! Let us commend Principal, Dr. Sieta Achampong and the students, staff and parents of Harrisburg High School, SciTech Campus for achieving this noteworthy academic goal that was set six years ago, and now has been realized by receiving the prestigious National Blue Ribbon School Award.

Congratulations and best wishes for continued academic achievement, high educational performance, and exemplary teaching and learning!

To help further financial literacy education among our students,

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, in partnership with the Harrisburg School District, is conducting a statewide Financial Literacy Contest entitled:

“What Does Financial Literacy Mean to Me?” This contest is open to students in grades 7 through 12 in the Harrisburg School District, as well as any other school districts across Pennsylvania. The deadline for contests submissions is November 26, 2018. No exceptions.


Click the link below for contest details.

http://harrisburgu.edu/financial-literacy-contest/Please email Harrisburg School District submissions to Kirsten Keys, Public Relations Coordinator at kkeys@hbgsd.usWinners will be announced in April 2019.

Starting with the class of 2019, students can request their transcript at https://tinyurl.com/hbgsdstutranscript instead of coming to the Guidance office to complete a paper request form.  Once students get to the website they can quickly and easily create an account and start requesting transcripts right away!

The benefits of an online transcript request include

    • Convenience for Students - Requests can be made right from the home computer without having to miss class to go to the Guidance.
    • Faster Service - Parchment immediately notifies the Guidance of the transcript request and transcripts can be processed within 48 hours
    • Easy Tracking - Students can follow, via Parchment, exactly where their transcript is in the process
    • More Secure Delivery - Since transcripts are sent electronically they go directly into the student's file at college, there is no chance of a paper transcript getting misplaced or lost in the mail
    • Good for the Environment - Using electronic transcripts will save hundreds of pieces of paper that were used to print out paper transcripts in the past
