Harmony and I have the same goal...leading and preparing my kids to a high education! To this I could add that the environment is very safe and that alone gives me peace of mind!

I have a gifted child in special ed and the teachers have all been flexible and supportive of him. After years of battling with AISD we've found a great home at Harmony.

Absolutely, no doubt. There are award ceremonies for different academic programs that children have stuck through....and excellence is recognized. Academics are highlighted more than other activities which helps students focus and feel supported in an environment that values persistence and achievement. They do also offer cultural and artistic extracurricular activities as well, to produce well-rounded students.

The leadership at the school inspires respect but also inspires ambition on the part of the students because there are so many fun science/technology projects that students can explore and trips that older students go on, so students realize it's in their best interest to do their best and respect the school and teachers.

As a charter school the classes tend to be smaller but even when the school hallways and multi-purpose rooms are crowded there's a strong sense of family. The school goes from lower grades through high school, so teachers know all the kids for years and intervene and work with all the kids if there is bullying. The Dean of Discipline there knows how to provide clear structure and expectations while working to aid and support children that are struggling. There is a great network of counselors and resource teachers.

These concepts are not just worksheet keywords at Harmony....their teachers are high quality, encouraging diligence and thinking outside the box. Children are challenged but also shown respect. Subsequently these values emerge naturally in this supportive environment.

DO NOT ENROLL YOUR CHILD HERE! This school is not interested in your child's education. Ali Sarioglu is a prime example of what is wrong with this school. The Harmony School of Excellence Austin seems to be a sham for immigrating people here from Turkey, most do not have a teaching background and are unable to communicate with parents. Take the time to find a reputable charter school for your child.
