Welcome to Harrington Middle School!

Mr. Keith Land
Interim Principal
Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.
The Thomas E. Harrington Middle School is home to 1,056 students in Grades 7 and 8, and 125 staff members, each school day. The professional staff of our school makes a daily commitment to go beyond minimum expectations while we continue to raise our standards. Harrington students make daily contributions to their school and their community.

Our achievements are also a result of the efforts made by area businesses, parental support, advisory groups, local public agencies, and individual community members. Collectively, these resources enhance and enrich the total teaching and learning environment.


Our school provides students with many opportunities to develop academic concepts and skills, acquire fundamental knowledge, determine interests and special talents, and experience a sense of belonging.

Dear Community Members, Parents, Business and Community Leaders, Students and Staff:

The Mount Laurel School District has launched "A Path to Success 2030", a strategic planning initiative that engages our community prior to the development of a new three-year strategic plan for our schools.

I would like to personally invite you to participate in our Strategic Planning Meetings. Your perspective would be a tremendous asset as the entire community comes together for these important discussions. Each of our sessions will focus on a specific theme designed to gather your input. All meetings will be held at the Mount Laurel Hartford School from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., as described below.

Please join those who have a vested interest in the success of the Mount Laurel School District as we begin this journey toward A Path to Success for all students.

Our meeting schedule is shown below. For your convenience, sign-up to attend through our online event service through the link below. You may attend all three meetings, or as many as your schedule will allow.

I look forward to sharing this Mount Laurel experience with you. Feel free to invite anyone you believe will bring meaningful dialogue to the discussion.

George J. Rafferty, Superintendent of Schools

New Lunch and Breakfast Menus Online and Improved

Check out our new interactive Cafeteria Menu. Breakfast and Lunch Menus are all in one place, and all schools are accessible through a drop-down menu.

SPORTS PHYSICAL INFORMATION

The laws governing sports physicals have changed at the state level and are extremely stringent. All sports physical forms must now undergo an additional level of review by our district physician. Implementation of these laws may actually preclude some students from participating if guidelines are not followed. 
 
The deadline for submission of sports physicals is OCTOBER 15TH for any student planning on trying out for Winter Interscholastic Sports.
 
Parents should be aware that sports physicals submitted will only be accepted if the examining doctor has signed the statement that he/she has completed the required professional development module on cardiac assessment. We are required to return any physical paperwork to the parent/student if this statement is not signed by the doctor.
