Harrison Prep is an IB World School.
Music and the other arts are integral to the International Baccelaureate
program. As displayed in the image above, music, visual arts, and technology
are equal to all other subjects and vital to holistic education, or teaching
the whole student.
The Middle Years Program is based on teaching students how they learn and how
to learn better by engaging them in learning activities that integrate all the
subjects together, giving students a glimpse of what lifelong learning looks
like. Students develop skills and learner traits that will serve them in
their future educational endeavors, not just while they are at Harrison Prep.

science in a creative way.
