Harmony Science Academy - Laredo 4

This is going to be our 4th year at this school. Overall I am happy with the elementary grades. Although they seem to struggle with some logistics (like parking, pick-up traffic, PTO, etc), the academic focus is positive. They have wonderful teachers who stay because of the autonomy and independence compared to the districts. The lack of bureaucracy is also a big plus. Things can be done without multiple levels of approval needed. Love the annual family picnic, International Festival, and Science fair. Turkish administration and upper grade teachers are a bonus in many situations. Where else in Larado can you learn Russian or Turkish? Exposure of our children to some diversity is a big plus. And the food... yum!

This is my sons second year at Harmony Science, he is now in the 6th grade. The teachers and staff are very nice the kids are really great. The first year was terrific, my son was very happy there. This year the school doubled in size, the staff and teachers are inexperienced and overwhelmed. The school does not really emphasize reading. My son used to be an avid reader, now there is no time. The homework is unrelentless and many nights he is up til 10 or 11 pm doing his homework. The teachers are inconsistent with grades and posting assignments in the computer. Homework is everyday, more on the weekends. There is no more time for reading, chores, sports, friends TV or games. PE is only once a week and there is no recess. My son is burned out and it is only second six weeks.

I am pleased with this school. This is my daughter's 2nd year and she could not be happier. The staff is great, the curriculum is excellent and I love that they challenge the students to their best potential. Grant it I know their main focus is academics and in the long run more beneficial for our children. But, I do wish they still had some of the traditional school activities that the regular schools have ( pep-rallys, holiday celebrations, etc.).
