this school is a load of BS. The teachers are a gang and they all disrespect the students and treat them like animals. the good students get in trouble for no reason just so the school can show them who is in charge. The school also favors Hispanics and the top 10%

Ok so I go to Harmony and for the people who say it is racist. Well they are wrong. They don't just pick on one type of kid. And yeah the AP kids can be kind of arrogant me included but we have a lot on our plates. It is excellent college prep because of the amounts of wok given help you learn how to manage your time. Most if not all the Core teachers are american. Born and raised. And the Turkish Teachers we do have are smart and have been teaching for years. This school is one of me favorites and will always be. Ive seen kids lie to there parents and get good people in trouble. So don't listen to your kids or their friends when they get in trouble because teens lie. Your child might hate the school but the school is preparing them for the future.

This school has gotten a lot worse from when I previously went there. The teachers are some times hard to understand because of their accent. Also this school doesn't provide many opportunities for students to learn and develop their character has a person.

Harmony Science Academy(North Austin) is a decent school I must admit, but it is full of very very major problems. The discipline system does not work, the punishments for DPS(Discipline Point System, in which students get points for being bad, so many points gets students a punishment) does not work, no one cares about it and the teachers barley use it to begin with. Then there comes their complete lack of knowledge regarding technology; they have again and again blocked websites that can be useful to students, namely Youtube.com and Netflix.com, going so far as to block the teachers access to these websites at the same time. Now I do understand that students will play and mess around on these websites at school, but take note they have not blocked a single gaming website, they simply blocked ones that they know of. Harmony may be good in grades, but that is due simply to the fact there are very few but very dedicated teachers who push students to do well, while others are at very best lack luster. Then there is the principle, who changes every year and never seems to leave his office to see the students. The school is decent, but needs a lot of work. -Written by a student-5 years

Its half half. My brother and sister say it can be good but sometimes it can be bad. So its a good school but it has a bit of drama.


Posted August 15, 2011

I have been going to harmony for 3 years now and I have mixed reviews for it. There is a general lack of funding and provision of Electives. There are some great teachers though but there are also some very bad ones. Some of the teachers at these schools in general lack the understanding of the English language to varying degrees the worse of which makes it very hard to understand what they are saying. Discipline is very strict with some teachers and most administrators. I have had the personal experience of being singled out for discipline on many occasions to the point where the teacher found a handful of students that he or she would generally discipline through DPS and being removed from class. This typically happens with the Turkish teachers who have haphazard to irrational discipline tendencies. Combined with there poor English this turns into quite a problem and is the source of most of my discontent. Some of these teachers are great but some of them are very bad, to the point of being unable teach.

i love this school!! i have gone for 2 years and it is such a awesome place such good teachers and good teaching i love the lockers and the scheduele i am going into 7th grade and cant wait!!!


Posted June 7, 2011

Overall i don't think this school is so exemplary as they say. I bet theres public schools that are better. Infact, my child goes to Pflugerville High School and he is getting all a's. At hsana yea we teach our kids a lot but what we need is more of the extra curricular activites like of public schools so that it will help them enroll for college. That is what i believe.

One day i was popping some corn, and some people came in and said, "yo give me some corn". I politely said no, and they said "DPS for not following reasonable request."


Posted December 18, 2010

This is an awesome school! Sure the uniform can get kind of annoying but who cares! The teachers care a lot, and Mr. Caglar is a wonderful principal. The school just got renovated and is beautiful!! So far, I would say this is the best harmony in Austin...


Posted October 7, 2010

I have 2 children at HSANA in their 2nd year there. My oldest needs support from special ed with an IEP. They have been wonderful with him and very accomodating. He is now in all AP classes! My younger child had trouble learning to read in public schools. They could not help him and we paid for expensive tutoring because he was a full grade behind. At HSANA he is thriving and now loving to read, making all A's and B's. Both of my boys are interested more in science and math. Their public school focuses all on language arts. I like that this school is an opportunity for growth and development in these areas. I only wish they continue to accept younger students so my youngest can go there too!

I have been very disappointed with this school. They claim that this is an open enrollment school. However, when you go to register your child they ask for your last report card, taks scores and interview the child. Without which they will not put your child's name on the lottery. They say that they have a special ed teacher but they do not like working with children on special ed if at all possible. This is more of a school for the talented and gifted and independent children. It seems to me that they pick and choose the students that they want on the lottery and this is how they become exemplary. This school does not cater to children at all levels.

Posted April 25, 2010

I am very discouraged with my decision to allow my child into this school for even a year. I am absolutely amazed that there is no one out there willing to admit that this school caters to a particular group of children and if you do not fall into this category then your child is singled out particularly where discipline is concerned! I didn t want to see or believe that this was going on. I spoke with a number of my child's classmates who confirmed that this was going on. The school really needs to look into who is constantly receiving DPS and being asked to leave the class cause I can tell you it is not the Turkish or Muslim students. Very Dispappointing that we still do this to one another!!

My son is extremely happy to be at Harmony Science Academy North Austin. He said the teachers here are nice and want you to do good which he did not feel at the Manor ISD. I am glad to have a private school atmosphere tuition free. A fellow friend had the same reading assignment during the summer. My son took the test and his friend did not (in Manor Middle school). The reason Manor didn't is because too many kids didn't read it. I am glad that HSANA did give the test to show to the students that they will be held accountable. Already I see the difference of which school cares if they read their book or not. HSANA does not tolerate distractions in class which makes a better learning environment. However, if the student is having a problem, they take the time to find out why.

Before we moved to Austin, we asked some educational staff for recommendations. Harmony was the only school mentioned repeatedly- so we moved nearby and have been pleased about the decision. The prinicipal is passionate about maintaining a 'community' school and is very selective on the staff he hires. The teachers actually care about the children and put extra effort into planning the day. . All elements that provide a wonderful learning environment for my children. It a whole-child approach :)


Posted April 6, 2010

Teacher's great! Somewhat overcrowded compared to previous years. Some students AP arrogant and excluding. Found bullying to be an issue never resolved. Clubs are a joke. Not as great as the hype.

We love this school for our son. The teachers are very careing about the students and go out of their way to motivate the kids. The administration listens to parents and the students opinion also is listened to. My son loves this school and is doing very well. Highly recommend it for serious students that need a challenge and very strutured. They are very strict on discipline which I as a parent agree with. It gives parents ease of mind knowing that rules are strictly adher to.

This school is really good. They have a lot of clubs and activities, (including my favorite, The Twilight Saga Club) and teachers are real nice.

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.
