We are VERY pleased with Harmony School of Excellence. Students are expected to be respectful of themselves and others, teachers are very dedicated and the administration obviously wants all kids to succeed. This is only this school's 2nd year and their performance is awesome! 1

My wife transferred our daughter 7th grader from Bailey to HSE-Austin, I have to be honest, I thought that move was a mistake, She has been there now for almost an academic year, and her school work have been great, She loves the small environment and flourishes with it, She misses extra curricular activities not available, and above all misses the BAND where she plays the Tuber. We are considering applying for our other too kids to go there from Baranoff, FYI, Baranoff is a solid school. The teachers actually did home visits to their students which I find awesome considering I am from Nigeria. What I would love to see is more parental role and or involvement that can benefit the school and kids at large.

We started both our children (Kinder & 5th grade) this year after many years at a private school. The principals & deans are very engaging with the kids and parents. Our 5th grader loves it - challenges and successes all. There is focus on AR Reading to get the kids motivated to read. Science is advanced and students doing labs at least once a week - we did not get this at all in our previous school. For any kids benchmarked below, there is after school tutoring (free). They want all kids to succeed. While this is only their 2nd year in operation, it is amazing what they are accomplishing! I also appreciate how they keep me, as a parent, up to date on grades (posted online as assignments are graded). Harmony is also focused on the student as a person with character and discipline systems in place.

Harmony has excellent teachers who really show interest in the students. The culture is one of pride in performance. As parents of 2 college graduates, we are really enjoying seeing our 8th grader enjoy school and know that he's been challenge in the classroom and extracurricular activities. A far cry from our older kid's Middle School experience.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
