Welcome to Harrington Middle School!

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.
The Township of Mount Laurel is pleased to announce that election polling locations will no longer be housed within the Mount Laurel Township Schools. New polling locations have been established through a cooperative effort with the Mount Laurel Fire District, Mount Laurel Municipal Utilities Authority, and the Mount Laurel Library. The General Election being held on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 will be the first election to utilize the new polling locations. Please use the link below to see the chart for a list of the districts and their new polling locations. Please note that only school locations have been changed.
Mount Laurel's Board of Education wants to hear from all Mount Laurel residents in its search for a new superintendent of schools. What do you feel are some of the challenges the district is likely to face over the next few years? What question would you ask candidates for the position if you were conducting the interview?
Your answers to five survey questions can help direct board members to consider those things the majority feels are most important in a new school leader. Can you find a few moments to participate?
Please follow this link to include your voice in the search process. Survey responses go directly to the New Jersey School Boards Association, which is facilitating the search process with the board. Details and progress updates on the status of the search may be found on our Superintendent Search page.
