School Official Point of View

Posted February 21, 2013

Harmony Science Academy - West Houston is a high-achieving, public charter school with a core curriculum based on the principals of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), as well as English Language Arts, Music, Art, Social Studies and a multitude of other courses available to all students. To address some of our parent reviews/concerns-- We have reviewed the front office policy based on some parental feedback and will be closing the front office between the hours of 2:30pm and 3:00pm only. This will allow us enough time for the first dismissal of our younger grades. At 3:00pm, the office will reopen until 5:30pm. Our principal administration is made up of three men and two women. Mr. Dogan is our campus principal and Mrs. Morales is our elementary school principal -- both supported by three assistant principals. All of our administrators are available for meetings upon request. You can set up a meeting by calling the front office. As for other means of communicaiton, all contact information for any administrative function was sent home to all families in the first month of this school year. I cannot speak on behalf of the teachers but would be happy to speak to you about any issues you may have with the PTO. As the staff PTO liason, I can tell you that 90% of the items and questions discussed at PTO meetings have either been addressed or resolved. Additionally, our campus has had a "ZAP" program instituted since the beginning of the year. The Zero Acceptance Program allows teachers to report those students who are missing assignments to complete these assignments during a non-instructional time period and make up the work. All student grades and assignments are also visible on the parent/student grade portal. Most grades are updated on a weekly basis, if not more often. We are currently focused on the STAAR test and have taken one practice test. There will be one more round of practice testing prior to the actual test. This is not unusual for any school. We have a campus made up of teachers from across the globe, as well as students/families that represent upwards of 50 countries, dozens of religions and countless languages. The diversity is unmatched and makes us the amazing school that we are. Again, please feel free to call and/or email at any time. Any of our staff members would be happy to speak with you. Thank you.

I love this school because they work with each student based on their personal needs. The students are valued and the atmosphere is positive.

This is my son third year ( He is currently in 9th grade) with Harmony and we love it. We love this school so much we are enrolling our daughter in Kindergarten this year. It I a small school and the teachers are very dedicated to their students. There is constant tutoring for children that may be struggling in a subject. This tutoring usually takes place after school and even on Saturdays. There is a personal attention given to each child. The administration staff is very polite and respectful. We are so blessed to have Harmony right in our community.

I am a student at HSAWH. I have to admit that the school is disorganized, which can be quite annoying. They also lack sports and performing arts. However, I love my school. I have been enrolled since the first year and have enjoyed it since the first day. I have made amazing friends, which I might not have made at public schools. I enjoy participating in an abundance of extra school activities such as NJHS, Math Counts, and Language Olympiad. Besides this, I have many opportunities to work 1 on 1 with my teachers, and still talk to my old ones. I enjoy the small school environment, because I know my fellow students. I have been here since the school opened in 2011 and have watched both myself and the school grow greatly. I started as a shy, unorganized 5th grader, and am now am a smart(if I do say so myself) 7th grade leader. This is a great school for your child if you want them to talk individually with their teachers and do not find it necessary for them to play multiple sports. - A seventh grade student

This is a brand new school and has some growing pains as would be normal for any new school. All in all, my son actually love this school with all their heart and we love the school as well. We have great teachers, a highly plugged in PTO and generous family involvement. So far we have been extremely pleased and are thankful for our positive experience. The specials teachers : special nod to our beautiful music teacher who has gone above and beyond to include my extremely shy little kindergartner in a loving way and I am so thankful for you! I think it can only get better. Every time I walk the halls I literally marvel at what a gift a school like this is to my children. I also feel like the community truly has a substantial hand in helping this school reach great heights and its comforting to know there is always someone there (a neighbor helping for instance) you just know your kiddos are in great hands.

I highly recommend Harmony West Houston. My son is very, very happy there. Teachers are hands-on REMARKABLE, flawlessly putting their high credentialed qualities to the ultimate test. This is a luxury for every student (& parent!). Thank you to all administrators and teachers....

HSAWH is an excellent school! I have one children enrolled there and he LOVES his school. I do not believe that there is more work than they can handle there are plenty of opportunities for them to get tutorials from their teachers during advisory and sometimes after school. The teachers put in every effort to your child succeed. HSAWH is the place to be!

Excellent School. We are new to US and chose Katy because of Schools reputation. Mrs. Landry is a wonderful teacher. All the staff is great and very friendly. My son is in Kindergarten and he loves his teacher and her school. Great experience ..........I am proud of being in Harmony .

Our daughter has been a student at HSAWH since 2012-2013 school year after moving her from Katy ISD elementary school. We love our school and are fortunate for the opportunity to be part of this wonderful school. Excellent academics, great teachers who go above and beyond their basic role in so many ways and a general positive atmosphere. It is true that the school is a new school and may have some minor organizational issues when compared to similar organizations with long track record, but that is minimal especially when you review TEA's official rankings and compare it with other top schools in the region. HSAWH was among the top 10% schools in Texas. More important, there is dedication from its administration and parents to make it the top school in the region. For those parents seriously interested in giving their children better education in a caring atmosphere, we encourage you to visit HSAWH and explore opportunity to become part of its community. The school is young and has great opportunities and its a great place to enroll your children at. Go wildcats!

My son is in Kindergarten at Harmony Science Academy- West Houston. My wife and I love the way our son is challenged at Harmony. We worked all summer on his sight words and we re only 2 months into the school year and he s reading already. Even though it s taking him some time to adjust to how structured Mrs. Carby runs her class, I m sure he ll be okay by the end of this semester. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL and hope that my daughter gets accepted in a few years. I also love the way they keep us informed 2-3 times a week via email on EVERY thing that s going on. My wife is an elementary teacher for AISD and she s highly impressed with the way Harmony is ran compared to her school. GREAT JOB HARMONY

HSAWH is a good school. it is inconvenient for some parents who don't have enough time but they can call in the middle of the school day and see if they are ok take it from me I go to thsi school it is a good school


Posted September 22, 2013

My son attended Harmony last year. We were very disappointed in the school. He is a straight a student and does not have behavioral issues. The teachersare/were mostly all very young. The pay at Harmony schools is very low, so maybe that is the reason. One of the teachers screamed at the class constantly. She took any recess ( they only had recess 3 days a week) they had away. They were not even allowed to talk during lunch, so this was a hardship for the kids. I sent the PE teacher a note, only 1x when my son was sick. I specifically asked that he not run and be allowed to sit out. His teacher told him that he had to run for the pres. fitness test, so he ran a mile. His main classroom teacher did not even learn to spell his name ( a common name) the entire year. Every time she sent something home, his name was misspelled. She also sent the entire spelling list home every week, w/ every word capitalized. She 'lost' all his school supplies & he was never given any of his stuff. She instead gave him broken/used items. The office closed during the beginning and ending of school which made it hard to take care of business & during school hours, the office phone rang unanswered.

We have a boy who was unchallenged at his top ranked KISD school. His third grade teacher had him teaching part of the class bc he knew everything before she taught it and he could explain it on they're level (I kidd you not). At Harmony, he has had homework and projects all year. He had literally never brought home a single piece of homework in his entire school career. The first week at Harmony they had him working on scientific method and doing a science project that my junior in HS was doing in her physics class. He has finally been challenged for the first time ever. And the other great thing about this school is that they take discipline seriously. They use a point system with differing consequences and if you get too many points you are kicked out of the school. It means they don't have to put up with the bullies and disruptions that the regular schools have. They just get rid of them. In the regular schools, bullies were never punished or sent anywhere else. They just got an hour with the principal and a phone call to the parents. It just kept happening over and over. Not at Harmony. We just finished our first year and we'll be here until he graduates.

Unorganized. We transferred to HSAWH this year from the location in Sugarland. Let me tell you...Huge disappointment. If it weren t for the lottery system, I would try and return to Sugarland campus. Staff is completely unorganized. My children are in the same class and had 3 different teachers throughout the school year, with one on maternity leave for 6-8 weeks. The teachers are young and have little experience. One of the replacement teachers in my children s classroom was not even certified to be a teacher. Children are expected not to talk at lunch, this is crazy! The only social time they have, and they cannot talk, seems a little absurd. The lack of activities for elementary student is obvious. My children were tested and accepted into the GT program and are left to play on YouTube during their GT class time. This is unacceptable. GT is supposed to foster their talents, not enable them to scour the internet. After speaking with the principal on multiple occasions about my concerns, we are still on the fence about returning to this campus.

I am a parent who's child attends this school and is also in the GT program at this school. I have mixed reviews about this school. My child has definitely learned a lot and has gained more confidence in this school. However, as a parent I am concerned about the laid-back attitude and at times, rude behavior of the front office and the administration. I strongly believe that the adults working in the school environment set an example for the children. Also, the administration needs to get more organized. That is the biggest problem in the school and will be a solution in itself. Also, I find this school to be very middle-school and High-school centric. Most of the activities and events are geared towards these grades. Elementary school requires a different mindset and a way of handling, which I find glaringly lacking. There is a distinct disconnect between the school and the PTO and a sense of mutual distrust between them. That is concerning. And what I am totally incredulous about is the fact that they are going to have benchmark testing for grades 3 and up, in the last week of school - right up to the last day. Seriously????

This is a great school ,but the administration have a lot of work to do. The administration needs to raise their standards for their staff. I drop my daughter off and I still see late teachers entering the building. Also, my daughters tells me about all the teachers that have tattoos. My daughter should not know that you have a tattoo,!! However, most of it comes down the teacher. For example, my daughter has an excellent teacher. Her teacher communicates frequently, gives us guidance on how to support our child, and offers challenging homework for my GT daughter. I have seen teachers in the same grade level do not have high standards. However, when walking around the school, I find many children running in the hallways, and the students act silly in line and this doesn't bother the teachers or administration. Also, I am concerned about safety. They leave the doors open in the morning and students sit and wait unsupervised. There is NO ONE watching the children that arrive between 7:00 a.m and 7:30 p.m. Unsupervised children scares me.

My husband and I have 4 children who attend HSAWH. We moved our children to Harmony as we had heard positive things about this school, and we knew the needs of our children were not being met by our local public school. I cannot fully explain how our children's lives have improved since attending Harmony! Our daughter with special needs loves going to school for the first time in three years and she speaks so happily of her teachers. One of our other children is in Harmony's GT program and enjoys the smaller class size and individual and advanced curriculum they have put into place for her. I have always found the school staff, from the teachers to the principal, to be honestly interested in getting to know each one of my children's strengths and needs and diligent about helping them. If you have children whose educational needs are not being met at their current school, I would highly recommend you give Harmony schools a try. I am thankful that we have the opportunity to choose where we send our children to school and hope that our legislators will hear our vote to increase their support and funding to Harmony and other charter schools who are dedicated to academic excellence.

I am excited that my child attends HSA. The staff at this school is involved in childs' learning and cares strongly about educating the whole child.

I am a parent who is concerned about the changes in staff and policy at HSAWH this school year. As a parent, I find it unacceptable that the school office is closed while students are in class (until 3:29 daily) If student safety is the concern, then pickup should be done at a location away from the office. That said, there are many extraordinary teachers and many who need additional education. This is a situation that you will find at any school. With children who have been educated privately, and at a traditional ISD, the odds of having a great teacher are 50/50. The one advantage that HSAWH has over the ISD is that it is a small school. It doubled in size this year, so I'm writing off the negative issues as growing pains that will be resolved next year.

STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
