My daughter was only white student in the whole class and only 3 percent is white for entire school not 57 percent like they stated before I bought a house here in the district

Horrific experience! Uniforms are required at this school and I support that philosophy. However, on "free dress day", my granddaughter (who wears size 7 pants and is in the first grade), and who was wearing a pair of tights with a long top over it, was forced to change into a pair of size 4 uniform pants because the tights were deemed to be non compliant with the dress code. She had to stand in class the entire day and when I picked her up, she was in tears and her skin was chaffed. Apparently this was a more acceptable option to the school nuts, the first grade home room teacher, and the principal. Very unreasonable "professionals" at this school. Additionally, there are are few electives and enjoyable activities for the children (no theater arts, minima music, minimal art programs). Classrooms have about 32 students per teacher and parents are expected to do a lot of the teaching at home.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

Once again, the parent does the real teaching. Teachers appear to just print off homework pages from the Internet and expect you. As the parent to do the teaching.

Amount of homework: Disagree

My third grader spends at least three hours each night on homework. Every evening she ends the day with tears and frustration. Discussing this with the teacher will only mean more hardship at the school for your child. Your child WILL be bullied if you confront a teacher.

We came from Klein ISD thinking this would be an improvement in the quality of the education. I found that the only difference is more homework (which I'm not complaining about) and less recess. The teachers and administrators do not communicate effectively and efficiently with parents when issues are brought to their attention. They have been unable to find a school nurse that will stay which poses a safety risk for all students since there are days there isn't a nurse or she leaves her office unattended with no one manning emergency medication. The principal...not sure what rock they found him under but clearly the issues with the school start from the top. I am more disappointed with this school than where I was. I will be withdrawing all of my children from here.

My daughter is a brighter student because of HSE because the teachers care abut their students.



- a parent
Wow! This school is great and my daughter loves going to HSE! We love the dress code because it make every student equal. No gang colors, no short skirt or tight pants. A God loving parents dream come true.

Alright lets first start off with the food....it's horrible! Second, the only good thing about this school is probably the academics. Third, any parents out there that has there child going to this school, I want you to ask your child what goes on in that school. They probably won't even tell you the truth of what actually happens in school. You know what I'm just gonna stop here cause there's just too much negative things about this school. Seriously, I not joking. Just keep your child away from this school or any other harmony schools. (I've had experience in multiple harmony schools)


Develops character: Disagree


- a parent
Why? You really want to know why? Well if you just talk to each student they'd probably make up some lie or maybe say "because I don't like the food," but I know there's more to it than food.



- a parent
The school is great academically, but there aren't any extra curriculum activities for the children. The staff communication is poor and any additional information that would like to know about the school, the staff would direct you to the website (unprofessional). The teachers aren't as experienced by state qualifications, and would rather not tutor. I would not recommend this school unless you are seeking extra help for your child. Also the are non-transferable!
