High teacher turnover rate. Students in many of the schools in not just this Harmony but some of the other high schools, don't know what they are doing in class. Many say, they just keep getting passed but they don't know anything about the subject. Very surprised.
I think it is not fair to say “terrible or Stay away if you can...”Because, this is a school choice issue - this is an open enrolled charter school. We came from a district and had a lot of concerns: bullying, poor education, lock of organization and communication… We were lucky this year and my 9th grade got in to Harmony. I found that this is an outstanding school with very high teaching standards and we absolutely loved it. Just keep in mind, there is no perfect school. You see some are good at academics but not sports, good at discipline but poor with education etc. You just need to find one that is best for your child, and in our case Harmony was the best option so far.

This school is terrible!!!! If you value your child's education please run the other way!!! They have a high turnover rate in teachers....my daughters language arts teacher changed about three times during the school year. There is no classroom structure, the teachers cannot handle the students. They just collect money from the state so they have to make sure they keep the classrooms to capacity. So happy we are back in public school in a great school district. Stay away if you can!!!
A student attends to a charter (school of choice) school for 4 years and accuses the administration and school. It is like I hate fast food but I always go to McDonald's. Our mission is to have safe, collaborative environment emphasizing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math for your higher education needs. A school which has 100% graduation rate in contrast to 70% in State of Texas. A school which has around 60% STEM major graduates in contrast to 10% in State. The college admission officers shouldn't know Harmony because it is called favoritism. They must create diversity in their campus not Harmony Schools' Graduates at UT-Texas, TAMU, UH or etc. While our alumni have pride attending these colleges, you are measured by what you have achieved rather than where you are now.
