Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

My son went to this school last year and they moved 5th grade to Harmony school of Exploration. Everything the parents said before this review is true. However, some good things are that this school offers a lot of clubs, so I actually did not even need childcare because my son was in a different club everyday. Also, they do a great job making sure that your child is meeting expectations for their grade level. If they need a challenge this can be accommodated through the GT program. Most of the teachers were okay, but some of them did seem a bit obstinate. I felt that Harmony is pretty strict when it comes to distracting students. And I never sent an email or made a phone call that wasn't returned

I don't believe the rating of 8 for this school. So many of my son's classmates at HSI are in serious need of remedial help, but are not getting it. This year the teachers seem to have a bad attitude. I can not get an answer back to any of my questions despite repeated emails and phone messages. I would like to work as a team with the teacher and give additional support at home, but that doesn't seem possible. Is the parent the enemy? I don't think the teachers are supported by the administration at all. Also, they assign large projects (History Fair, Science Fair, etc.) and give these 4th, 5th, & 6th graders no guidance as to how to write an outline, bibliography etc. for a research paper, so the parents (a lot of them speak English as a second language) have to do it with the child or their child gets a zero. As a side note, their after school program is horrible. My son was trapped in this dirty little classroom with twenty screaming kids until I could get to the school to pick him up. I could go on about the drop off and pick up procedure and how it takes forever, but I think I've made my point. I have withdrawn my son for the second semester.
