1st year in that school, my 3 kids are actually excited to go to school every day, they are finally learning and exceeding in everything. I love the school, the teachers are awesome so far and they are willing to always help your child. I have notice changes on behavior, they are happier kids, more responsable etc. BEST OF THE BEST Im so glad we got "in". I can not express how happy i am and hope it continues to be like that.
My children go to HSA Fort Worth for the last 4 years. We can not say enough about this wonderful school, teachers and students. They are very focused on Academics and work very hard on supporting their students to achieve the best education they need. The wonderful teachers at HSA work very hard to help the students during school and every activities their students have. The student participate in a lot of activities and competition such as Science Olympiad, Science Fair, Robotic, Math Count as well as Sport like Soccer, Basketball & Volleyball. Overall, we are very satisfied as a parent with HSA and our children are very happy and enjoy their school, their teachers and their friends. So to anybody who consider Harmony Science Academy, they make the perfect choice !
Being a VERY proud former student, I can clearly say that this is one of the best high schools in the nation ACROSS THE BOARD! If one is looking for a great high school for thier child, put HSA-FW at the TOP of the short list.
My child has been a student at HSA Fort Worth for 3 years, and plans to continue on through graduation. The focus on academics and continuing on to a 4 year college has impressed me throughout our time at this school. Most of the teachers are caring which, along with the small school environment, prevents quieter students from being lost in the shuffle. There are academic clubs like robotics and Science Olympiad, which promote teamwork while helping to prepare students for a college education and for careers in science and engineering fields. The school does offer sports, but that is not a main focus at this school. The school offers a disciplined environment that helps prevent distractions in the classroom. Students who have too many disciplinary infractions are not allowed to return to school, which is invaluable to students who are at school to learn. I have found the administration to be responsive and supportive to my requests and problems. I would recommend this school to anyone with a student whose main focus is learning as much as possible and continuing on to college, particularly if they are interested in a science, math or engineering career.
I really like HSA due to their extracurricular activities and the teacher's involvement in helping students and speaking to parents. I would recommend any student to come here.
My sons are enrolled ta HSA Ft Worth. Our family loves this school and its academic environment! They are involved in academic competitions like Science Olympiad and the Exxon Mobile Science and engineering fair, extracurriculars like band, flag football, soccer and basketball. The teachers are highly skilled and valued, the parents are involved and the the administration is supportive! I highly recommend this wonderful family if you are considering enrolling your kids. No matter what field of study your child thrives in.. HSA has something to offer!!
Hands down the best public school in Fort Worth! I am so glad they are building another campus.
Harmony has helped my son harness his academic potential and pushed him beyond his comfort zone. If you are looking for an academic boost in science, technology, and math then Harmony is the place. There are high expectations for each student and a process to ensure their success. Additionally, the school climate is conducive to learning. I would recommend Harmony to every parent, especially those with a child gifted in the areas of science, technology and math or looking for a smaller school with more academic focus.
Harmony's small, private school atmosphere has helped my daughter thrive. I wanted my daughter to receive a quality, private school education, but my husband and I couldn't afford it. After doing research, we found HSA-Fort Worth. The teachers are amazing and provide extra help to all students when it is needed, including Saturdays. This is a change from the public school where teachers are hard to reach outside of school hours. The extracurricular activities are wonderful in gaining students' interest in the STEM fields. We are happy with our choice for our daughter, and so are most Harmony parents I know.
My children are finally learning! I was shocked at the poor quality education my children were receiving at our local school. After being on the lottery for 2 years, my children were accepted. I have nothing but praise for the teachers and staff. Harmony's high academic success is the result of caring, dedicated teachers that go the extra mile. Keep up the great work Harmony!
Harmony Science Academy Fort Worth has been an amazing choice for our children. The most important reason that I recommend it is small school size, more individual attention to the kids, (especially in high school), and a lot of extracurricular activities that they offer. Some of the private schools do not even have more after school events than they have. Thanks HARMONY for being such a great school. :)
Harmony Science Academy-Fort Worth is by far the best option for our child. Right now the Fort Worth ISD is the lowest performing urban district in all of Texas. While they do not have the same emphasis on sports activities, the academics are rigorous. Most importantly, they have 100% college acceptance, so I know that when my child graduates from Harmony they will have opportunities for college. I love the small school environment, but I know kids want more social opportunities. The discipline system works great - no fights, no gangs, no drugs. The teachers are here all hours of the night and weekends working with the students on academically-oriented extra curricular activities. My son LOVES robotics. I highly recommend Harmony Science Academy-Fort Worth.
Great school with an amazing education. This school is very demanding of its students, as schools should be. I think many times students get into the habit or expectation of getting by with doing the bare minimum and HSA does not accept that. Yes, it will weed out the academically weak or misbehaved students, which I think is great because it allows students who are serious about education to focus with out disruptions. Most of the teachers are Turkish and they have the mentality to succeed. If you talk to the student that are at the top of their classes, they will tell you how great the school is. The challenging environment and teacher challenges only help students prepare for college because life will only get challenging as it goes along. So by forcing students to excel now, it helps prepare them for a bright future. Great school! Thanks you HSA.
hsa is like a revolving door kids go in and kids go out!My kid went to this school and was very popular him and about 30 kids he knows all left or got kicked out, Some of the kids have came to my home and they talk how bad hsa was and how they did not understand the teachers when they talked and they would get dps,pts.for askingthe teacher over and overwhat they were saying and for asking other kids what they said and They said more then half the time they just did what they thought the teacher wanted,They all hated the hsa and they like the schools they are going to now,HSA is one big joke,I am glad my kid is out of there.
Harmony science is a very small school they dont have very good education i dont really like it there i already moved from there but i was a student there and the teachers barely know how to speak english!! But the kids in there are very good thats the only thing i miss everyone is nice so if your kid is getting bullied in public school you could come to harmony science academy and they will feel better but the education and sports lack tremendously if you want your child to be not very educated then come to harmony science academy
My son has been going to Harmony for 3 years and is returning, after summer break, for his junior year of high school. The public school he previously went to had a "hood" mentality. If you got good grades, paid attention in class, and didn't get in trouble, you were teased and threatened. When his grades began to drop and his behavior became disruptive, I went to his school and SAW this occuring. Harmony was our answer to this problem. Yes, many of the teachers are Turkish and can be hard to understand and the student population is diverse, including muslims. However, I am thankful for these differences. They have fostered acceptance and understanding in my child who was in danger of being anything but. While this school was the answer for my oldest child, I am not sure if my other children will go here. My next oldest child will be starting school in a year and is very artistic and outgoing. I would like to find a school that nurtures these areas as well as Harmony has nurtured the science and math skills of my oldest.
My son enrolled in this school in fall of 09, and we were very excited. I believe he was accepted because of his latest TAKS math results. He had received commendation in the TAKS test taken at a regular public school in spring of 09. He will not be re-enrolling this year as he came out of the school barely passing this same test. I am very disappointed in the schools policies. Yes the teachers have heavy Turkish accents, and I don't seem to understand discipline. They lost several forms that I had turned in like lunch form (even though we told them we wouldn't qualify anyway) and his vaccination record was misplaced and they realized this in his second year of enrollment. They highly respect Muslim traditions and all relating matters. BUT DO NOT in any way express or display anything that would show disrespect to the Muslim community. No, I am not a rating religious nut rating, but believe me when I say this. My son will be attending public school this year and I hope his academics improve.
Do not send your kid here! I'm a high-schooler here and it is alright for me. I love the feel of a small school but most people will hate it here. The teachers are extremely rude, half barely understand English, and as for the school is so cheap. If your kid has problems with being bullied though send them here. The students here are not mean at all...ok some are but it's not as bad as public school. I'm not really sure how to convey this but I would not suggest bringing your kids here. And the sports department is highly lacking.
We have 1 student in Harmony Science Academy and have enjoyed watching her thrive in a system that teaches academics rather than how to take the TAKS test. In the small school environment she has maintained close frienships that were not available in the large public school. As in any school, some teachers are better than others. And the Turkish forgien language classes are required, but not challenging beyond 1 semester. The HUGE drawback to this school is lack of consistent policies and procedures ranging from annually changing enrollment application processes, to signing up for classes, to how information is relayed to parents. Not everything is posted on the website as we are told. When a descrepancy is found it is always the parents' fault. I do not recommend this school to a family with outside community commitments, or where the student is not 100% self motivatied.
Excellent academics. Extra curricullar activities are lacking. Overall wonderful school. There is not much parental involvement either. Teachers and staff handle everything.
