I believe that Harmony is a school that has alot of favortism and helps only the students that they want to help. I had to get moved out of that school for many reasons involving that school

Harmony is a unique school: It has dedicated professionals and parents who strive to be the best they can be in this changing world. Students, teachers, support staff and students tackle problems without blame and with the goals of success for the students foremost. This is a wonderful school!

Not a parent but rather I am a graduate. The teachers choose favorites, things are unorganized and poorly done, overall the educational vavlue is low. Bad school!

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
