Having established- with the aim of providing quality education and all-rounded development to the Liberian students- in 2004, the academic activities of the JW Harris Memorial School began in 2008. The first batch of our school graduated in 2015. Since 2015, four more batches have graduated through the JW Harris Memorial School following GCSE qualification.
To assure the best quality of education for our students, we follow the GCSE (General Certificate for Secondary Education) qualification as a pattern of evaluation and graduation. The GCSE qualification is in a particular subject and stands alone, but a suite of such qualifications (or their equivalent) is generally accepted as the record of achievement at the age of 16, in place of a leaving certificate.
Our ultimate mission is to “bridge learning opportunities” for our students by giving them an environment where they become confident, responsible individuals and achieve their full potential. Further, our curriculum and guiding philosophy have been prepared in such a way that it aligns with our mission statement. This is why our graduates have time and again excelled in various academic as well as non-academic fields.
In a nation that has been torn apart by a devastating civil war, and is struggling to get back on its feet, the graduates of JW Harris Memorial School have been catalysts of change in the local community of Logan Town and Bonjour Community in the suburbs of Monrovia and many other communities in other parts of Liberia as well.
