Principal's Welcome Message

  • Dr. Joy Harris It is my great honor to join the Harbour View family!  Working with the staff, parents and community of this wonderful school has been my summer pleasure and no doubt, there are many more great people, experiences and learning ahead.  I am truly looking forward to a wonderful year as a part of this amazing school.    

    I am first a teacher, and always a learner.  A Midwestern native, much of my teaching and administrative experience has been here in sunny Southern California.  For the last 5 years, I have proudly served students as the principal of an award-winning elementary school east of San Diego.  My teaching and administrative background at all levels and with varying student populations have primed me to give my best to the students of Harbour View. My passion for innovative teaching practices is equal to my dedication to ensure that all students have a happy and safe learning environment.  

    Providing students with a well-rounded education experience takes a village, and Harbour View’s legacy for strong partnerships is one that we will continue.  From your first experience walking through our front door, you will see that our community is eternally dedicated.  My commitment to you is that you will be welcomed and cared for, and this will be reinforced in every interaction.   I believe in the power of us!  Our strength will be our greatest asset as we design a quality learning community for our students in the 2018-19 school year!
