Principal's Message


Dear Harvard Avenue Performance Academy Families:

My name is Lachelle Dixon-Harris and it is my humble pleasure to introduce myself to you as the new principal of HAPA! I am excited to meet with parents, students, and faculty and community stakeholders as we embark upon this journey together. It is my goal to help create an environment that fosters: positive student culture, high academic expectations and quality interactions that will forever mold your child into a confident and continued learner. I invite you to become a part of the excitement by partnering with me as we make this school year the best HAPA has ever seen.

Parents can be assured HAPA is a delightful place for students from diverse backgrounds to grow educationally, physically, socially, and emotionally. HAPA excels in every aspect of school measurement whether it is academically or athletically. Our students continually out-perform their peers from other school districts! We want our students, families, and staff to feel HAPA is a family working together towards the betterment of every one of our students. Our hope is for them to leave as prepared as possible to be the most successful and productive members of society that they can be.

Again, thank you for visiting the Harvard Avenue Performance Academy page! We encourage you to come visit the school, take a guided tour by appointment, and learn more about us. Our staff will kindly welcome you and your child in our educational journey to greatness! We look forward to working with each and every one of you.

Lachelle Dixon Harris
