Welcome to Ira Harbison Elementary School, home of the Hawks! Established in 1949, Ira Harbison School serves the eastern community of National City and is part of the National School District. Our school supports approximately 550 students every day from transitional kindergarten through sixth grade, with high-quality academic programs and extra-curricular activities.
Our commitment is to provide students with learning experiences that will help them develop the skills necessary to thrive in a 21st century environment. Though our instructional focus remains centered on the common core state standards, we also celebrate and build on students’ interests, passions, and hobbies. We want learning to be meaningful, purposeful and fun and know that this will be achieved with a child-centered education.
Additionally, it’s clear that our parents play an integral role in their child’s education. We work side-by-side with them to ensure that our students develop into life-long learners filled with confidence, compassion, and creativity. Ira Harbison staff, students and parents are truly dedicated to the school’s vision of “excellence for all.” As a result of this unified and family-oriented approach, we are proud to announce that Ira Harbison School is an exceptional place for student learning.
We look forward to working with you and your child this year and encourage you to stay connected with our school community through social media and other digital platforms.
Ms. Isabel Silva, Principal
