The administration and staff of Harlan County High would like to welcome each student and their parents to our school. This is an exciting time for us as we enter another year of existence and continue to offer many new courses and facets to learning in a ‘state of the art’ educational setting. Our curriculum has been established to prepare our students for a smooth transition into the workforce, armed forces, technical or college education. It is our desire that all students become an active school member; our high school offers many sports and extracurricular activities to meet the needs of ALL our students.
