    Planning for College
    College bound students should strive to maintain a 3.0 or higher at Harden Middle School, get involved in a club, program or extra-curricular activity or sport, and begin community service projects. College bound students always seek support when they find they are struggling. Be sure to go the homework center or attend a teacher's tutorial when needed. In addition, families are encouraged to attend events in and beyond the boundaries of our community to enrich their child's education.
