Mission statement: Harpeth High School provides a safe learning community which challenges its students academically, artistically, and athletically. We empower our students to become life-long learners who possess integrity and wisdom.
Beliefs about learning and instruction: We believe that teachers need to be periodically in-serviced in their subject area to learn innovative student-oriented techniques.
