this school is one of the best schools i have ever attended! my previous school treated me different just because of the color of my skin, and at this school i am measured on my personality and my mind.Here they have taught me i am more then a stereo type,and i am more then a test score or a GPA.They have also introduced new ideas and global concepts that have inspired me to change the way i think.Here i have learned and experienced other cultures and different types of people that all accept you because of who you are.AND another positive i have been over seas with my school! how many people can say they have been to turkey?much less have been before they turn 18! yeah we may not have a huge class or other thing others have but we have teachers that care and a home away from home and for that i am thankful to Harmony School of Nature and Athletics.
Look into the ownership/leadership of this school. If you are okay with a majority Islam/Turkish leadership, sign up. Don't believe everything you read, but DO your research first.
I've been a proud Harmony School of Nature parent since the school first opened. Actually one of my children (now in middle school) spent one year in public school and then transferred to Harmony in 2nd grade. We haven't looked back since. I've seen Harmony Nature overcome seemingly insurmountable odds and move forward with great strides. The administration is very focused and approachable. Not only does this school cater to my children's academic needs but it also instills a healthy respect for diversity. I can honestly say that this school is an awesome place for my children.
The behavior in the classrooms is impressive at Harmony. When I walk down the hallway, the students are well behaved and respectful. Even the kindergartens know how to act and pay attention. This is a refreshing change from our old school. Keep up the good work!
I had two boys in Harmony since the day this location opened. During that time it's been a revolving door of teachers and policies on how to handle problem students. My youngest started kindergarden and loved it. My oldest started in the 5th grade and spent 3 years being ruthlessly bullied. The administration at this school does not enforce it's own rules and does not support the teachers. I've known teachers that have left this school because some kids are allowed go undisciplined. If your child is a victim of bullying they are punished along with the bully. I'm speaking from experience and not malice. I volunteered at the school every morning and tried very hard to help, but it was heart breaking to hear and even see my son be relentlessly bullied. Even after getting the bulling caught on tape, my son was punished for defending himself in a 3 on 1 situation during gym class. The reason given was he should have ignored it. The root of the problem with this Harmony school goes all of the way to the top of the Administration. The leadership is weak and unsupportive of teachers and the kids know it. Repeat offenders have figured out the loopholes and use to to there advantage.
The staff is great. My child is now reading above grade level. This school has a plan of action to make sure all kids are headed in the right direction.
This is the 2nd year my children have attended Harmony. I absolutely love the school. My children have not experienced bullying as the other parent stated. My oldest daughter was bullied more at the private school she attended prior to Harmony. The communication from the school is good and I have not experienced any problems this year. I think the statement made about the children being ghetto is offensive and an overstatement. As in most public and charter schools, you will have a percentage of low income and diverse children, but it should not be a negative. My oldest daughter who is in middle school likes it a lot better than private school she previously attended. Also the school welcomes parent involvement and open communication with the teachers. There are some things they need to work on, but the good out weighs the bad. I would recommend it to any parent.
This school is horrible. It's been taken over by ghetto students, and the teachers are horrible. My child has been bullied here to the point that she skips school. Her math teacher only gives them packets, and even when she went into tutoring, her grades still didn't raise. The students are rude, and the teachers are only there for the paycheck. It has been a living nightmare at this school. DO NOT ENROLL YOUR CHILDREN IN THIS SCHOOL!
Please think twice before enrolling your student in this school. This school has great marketing but that is it. The school claims to be big on Science and Robotics (you have to pay for and it is after school & the club was cancelled this year). The students are not challenged and the administration is horrible. Too many chiefs and no Indians. They honestly don t know what they are doing up there.
