I have 3 kids who enrolled this fall. Though they were above average students, but within this short time there has been a great transformation. They are all super students now by God's Grace and the good foundation of the school.
Am greatful to 1st ,2nd and 5th grade teachers that teaches my kids. They always go extra mile to get them educational materials and has brought the good out of them. They keep me inform of everything through emails and class dejo.Their approach to decipline and readiness to help.
This school is extremely unorganized and is always worried about its budget. Although most of the teachers here are great, they are extremely limited to the amount of things they could because of the tight budget. Sincerely, i don't see why there even has to be a tight budget problem, when this school apparently has enough money to build an artificial soccer field and add a fence around the school. And this isn't the only Harmony school that suffers of these problems, many other Harmony schools in Dallas suffer the similar problems. The school buildings are made of either old stores or churches. This organization ,from the looks of it, believes that quantity is better than quality. Although the school at least does one thing well, and that's the good teachers they have. The attitude of the students vary from grade to grade. I would suggest for the school to be more organized and prepared for the next school year. Their priorities on budget should be on improve the building itself, since it is so old and small that the high school students are going to be moved to a different school.
This is a great school. My son has been attending HSA GP for 3 years now, yes, at first I too was put off by the accents and that so many are from Turkey. Three years later, I really like all of the faculty, especially the ones with the accents, they have never failed to answer my questions and they have really helped my son. My only disappointment is that they are closing down the High School. We'll really miss GP and its great and caring faculty.
I am a recent graduate from the GP location, I had been a student here since the school opened, and I am APPALLED at the negative comments. Yes, A LOT of the staff do have heavy accents, but what these negative commenters fail to inform you is that the staff with accents are foreign language teachers, or EXCELLENT math and/or science teachers. If you are looking for a smaller school this is an ideal school; however, if you are looking for a bigger school public school is the way to go. As a former student, with a graduating class of 20, I am confused as to the negative comments saying the classes are "over crowded". I, myself, loved the smaller student and staff sizes, this giving teachers more time to focus on students individual needs. To address the comment on the pamphlet having pictures from another campus, I received a similar pamphlet...WHEN THIS LOCATION OPENED, thus did not have any pictures to add. This location is now open and fully functional, with many different activities/clubs. Finally to address the communication, staff provide posters at the front office, as well a weekly email send out informing parents of events going on at the school. I loved my school!!!
