A a parent, I would recommend this school to the parents who expect high quality education. If you are expecting the school/teachers to raise your kids, you might want to look for other alternatives.
This school is probably one of the worst I have ever been to. Too many students and not enough teachers or space. Very disappointed in how the administration treated me during my time there. I loved the kids and the diversity and the other teachers that I worked with but the administration needs to be replaced before they replace quality teachers.
Our son loves this school! It's his first year here and he is so very happy. The discipline policy is strict. His teachers are always available and helpful. Each 6-12 student is given a chrome book, and the new Math software Aleks is just great .
When my kids first went to this school we really did enjoy the different culture and the way they handled the school academics, extracurricular activities then we left and came back to the school boy this was a mistake the second time around!!! This school does not like to communicate with the parents due to the online app with their email attached. Once your child walks through the door they put all the pressure on them. They depend on the students to bring all information home no filter or no knowledge on homework assignments. Their points system is failing a lot of students because they only give them DPS points if they do not act like the student they need to be. If a student is in need of help the teacher does not assist them the teachers make other students responsible. The teachers do not help the students or teach them their subject. They do not want other students to help their peers because the teachers are supposed to teach them, so that student gets in trouble for helping. They have a certain teacher teaching a foreign language which is not their native language but their third language (if true).
Coming to this school was the WORST mistake of our life! This is school is unorganized. It's about the money not parents time, No communication, no parent involvement. once your kids go past those double doors there no longer yours.! The teachers and staff will NOT CALL you back only email if you want a response. They teach your children Islam religion ways and vocabulary words? Like said before by others --my kids hate it here, they are outcast them and have favorites. Academic wise it's ok. But is that worth your children's faith??? And emotional feelings? My kids will NOT be attending here next year and I will NEVER encourage anyone else to go thru what we have gone thru.
HSA is an excellent school! The leadership and teaching staff have the student's best interest at heart. I am proud to say that my children attended this school.
Very organized, wish they hada bigger play ground. Nurse Tatum rocks! Front Desk attentive Teachers very accountable and responsible for elementary. School always trying to engage students in extra credits.
I attentded this school last year. And all I can it wasn't all that great. First off I was sent home for ''sagging'' when my shorts were perfectly on my waist with a belt. The only reason it did look like that was because I had to wear my older brother's shorts since I get hand me downs. Anyways It was hard making friends here . Most of the kids are muslim, which I have no problem with but they left me out most of the time. This school was depressing and I felt as if I was alone here. The education is great! Barley any sports but academic wise the school was awesome!
Terribly unorganized, questionable safety & security and way too many kids in a very, very limited space. 26-28 kids per classroom in a very small building where there should be no more than 16 kids in a classroom as it was before. Already looking for new school.
well its impo to me to support my kids school but i wish they could step to this page and try to take an action regarding parents comments they are good people but need to take more care for the details any ways im grateful to most of the teachers around my kids
No flexibility, No communication, No care, No organization! If you plan to put you children into this school, I am convinced that you will regret it. This school is crazy. Teachers and administrators have favoritism toward white children and Turkish. The drop-off and pick-up system always make parents mad. I had to be at the drive-through way on 1:30pm to pick up my child in time. Most teachers are not qualified with teaching students. Most of them are novices. Your children will not be able to get anything from the worst teachers.
My son was going to Harmony in 3rd grade . But we have some emergency .I have medical condition like that doctors wont allow me to drive.But I love this school . Teachers specially the special education teacher she is so wonderful my son learned a lot in first 4 weeks that he did not learn in last whole year.People at the front desk they are so helpful that make me so hard to leave this school .I love this school .I will go again if I will be able.
Daughter and son attended for 3 years. We echo many of the previous reviews, both positive and negative. The best teachers don't stay. Kids are in Arlington schools this year and seem prepared for their classes, so that says something about the instruction they received. On the whole, there were just too many negatives to continue at HSA-Euless. During the 2013 science fair, we made a list of all of the things that annoyed/perplexed us: 1) Magnet classes were canceled during the first few weeks of the fall 2012 semester. 2) Disorganization. Kids had wrong schedules for the first 4-5 weeks of school in Fall 2012. 3) They require expensive uniforms that you can only buy from HSA, but they never have enough. For two years, my son made do with 2 shirts each year. 4) Idiots in the parking lot. Very unsafe. Lack of safety procedures in parking lot. 5) Irrational adherence to dress code. 6) Poor language skills of Turkish teachers. 7) Administrators are not responsive. 8) Teachers let students turn in way too much late work. 9) Grade inflation - daughter should not get 100 on every assignment. 10) Mystery of Turkish influence (see 60 Minutes story for a start). 11) High teacher turnover.
Student teacher ratio was actually worse than a public school they were not well established and made up DUMB rules as they went. Harmony was a huge mistake. The food was horrible my kid is in 6th grade and this year they have way more students and decided we have to pick up our kids like they were in pre-k with a paper with their name on. One at a time the traffic in that place is ridiculous. For that and many reasons more I choose to transfer my daughter to HEB which has turned out to be so, oh, so much better.
This is one of the greatest schools. The teachers are the best i have nothing bad to say about harmony. Harmony science academy euless is just wonderful.
This school is slow and unorganized. Too many people. The cafeteria is packed. The hallways are packed. Two years ago there was more space to walk around. Last year there were good teachers and now most of the good teachers are gone and replaced with ones that aren't so good. Horrible just horrible.
Posted August 6, 2013 I cannot say enough positive things about this school Great teachers and great staff. Excited for this year for both my kids!!
I wish I can put 0 star for this school. They had a good teacher. However, they had a poor management. We had problem with the vice principle for K- 4 grade at Euless campus. He instructed me to keep walking and do not ask any question to the teacher. We missed the orientation due to job related out of town. We just have to inform my son teacher that he has sister in the kindergarten and I will pick them up together. He screamed to us to keep walking so the teacher did not get a full information from me. I could not find them in the afternoon when I picked them up due to partial information in the morning. When I asked to talked with him in the afternoon (he was playing internet in front of me), the receptionist told me that I have to set up an appointment via email. Good teacher with a bad service.
When I first found out my lil kindergarten girl was accepted, I was very happy...then the bad news begins. The first day of school kids were sent to the wrong class. The first few days my little girl was asking me for something while I had barely dropped her off, and the teacher on duty just shoved her in the building without considering what she had to say...2 days later I ask my lil girl how her day went, and she told me "I fell asleep in the cafeteria & when I woke up, everyone was gone" how do you seriously forget a student??? Well then they made her walk to her class with it being her first week of class & to top it she was in kinder....the worst part the teacher never mentioned this to me...then when I confronted her about it she tried to blame the computer lab teacher, but I knew that wasn't the case because my lil girl Told me that when she finally made it to her class the teacher asked her "where have you been?" Wow! Really? I confronted the principal too & she did nothing...very disappointed in this school. I took her out the next day....definitely not what I expected....
To the parent that said all the negative reviews are from parents that want the teachers to raise their kids.... I have read nothing here that shows anything but the concern these parents have for their children and the concern they have for an institution they entrust their child's education to. That said, my child has been at harmony for 3 years and my concerns over the past year have been in regards to the office staff being uninformed on school policies and not returning phone calls, the website not updating critical information, awesome teachers that are tossed aside and forced to quit, teachers that display such bad use of the written and spoken English language that it is frightening and confusing for the kids, teachers that don't treat all children in the class the same in regards to giving help when asked, and principals that ignore emails. There has been no lack of trying to make this the experience I had hoped it would be for my child, but the school is failing miserably. Please please Harmony heed the words of those of us who want nothing but the best and who desperately need a good alternative to the public school system.
