JW Harris Memorial School


Let's Begin Together

Welcome to JW Harris Memorial School

Experience the difference – at JW Harris Memorial School, the oldest school in Liberia, we believe in empowering our students with knowledge so that they can lead in every area of life.

Education is not only about following a curriculum and imparting knowledge. Education involves developing future leaders, nurturing kids who can take charge of their own lives, and bring changes in the lives of others. Being the best school in Liberia, we are committed to giving our students every opportunity to grow and realize their potential.

JW Harris Memorial School is one of the best private schools in Liberia. We have developed a wonderful community of students and teachers who struggle hard to excel in every field. Our relationship extends beyond the classrooms to include all aspects of our lives to help our students grow into great human beings.

All children should get an equal opportunity to study and develop themselves. Education is that magic wand that can set us free, and so, JW Harris Memorial School strives to provide education to all.

We want to strive harder and help our children to move ahead in life through world-class education. Our dream is to achieve international standards of education so that our students can compete in the global economy.
