Parsons Memorial Elementary School is one of four elementary schools within the Harrison Central School District which strives to be a model of our district’s core values: Equity, Access, Adaptability, and Rigor for all.

Our vibrant school community, located in the heart of downtown Harrison, has maintained a close relationship and developed a rich history in the local community since opening its doors in 1898.

A highly qualified and dedicated staff educates approximately five hundred students with diverse learning profiles in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.  We maintain a common focus on challenging students academically while nurturing them socially and emotionally.  Instruction is built around collaboration and critical thinking.  Our ultimate goal is to inspire students while they continue to develop a love for learning.

Educators, families, and community members join together to build a safe and supportive environment for all children at Parsons.  Once you enter Parsons, you will always be part of our family.
