The original Harrison Elementary School was constructed in 1849 on West Main Street. Named for James O. Harrison, the first superintendent of the Lexington Public Schools, Harrison Elementary is the oldest existing school in our system. The present building was completed in 1972 and renovated in 1999. We also house a Healthy Kids Clinic, which provides many services for students during the school day.
