I am a student, and it's really not that bad... As long as your a person that usually pays attention to the rules. The school is amazing, but the problem is when you get in trouble it gets complicated. And the only thing I need to say about the classes is that once you get used to the classes, it gets easier... Sooner or later...

We took our children to Harmony as our only other option to SWISD schools. We are selling our home now and moving to NISD so our kids can go to a good public school. Harmony has **some** excellent teachers. However, their administration is lacking all ability to do anything correctly. First, you cannot just go to visit anyone in that building. You can request an appointment with someone, like the Principal. However, they are more likely to push your request off to someone else or deny it altogether. There are a lot of issues here, but the one that made us leave is the administration requesting $200 for my 4th grader (who passed the 4th grade but failed the STAR test) to go to summer school. Then they will **maybe** allow him to go to the 5th grade. The STAR test is not mandatory until the 5th grade. They also have zero ability to help my child with real learning issue. The school is lacking.

It has a lot of dedicated teacher that i am proud to work with. Sometime that inspires me a lot so that i want to do more for kids. It is just a blessing to be member of this family.

Awesome school! My children has been attending here for 6yrs and they love it. love the setting of smaller classes! I appreciate the dedication of most of the teacher, you know they don't do it for pay but because they care for the children!

As a teacher and parent. I loved this school and miss being part of the community. My daughter loved going here and was given excellent attention when it came to tutoring and help she needed. The administration changes often, but the teachers are very committed and caring about the students. Tutoring and help offered and a range of activities are provided every year. A growing community.

sorry to dissapoint those out there planning to take your child here, but they will never become successful in life when they come here. I came here and was not pleased whatsoever, finding my grades to vastly drop :/


Posted April 5, 2011

I love this school! I moved my child from the NISD to this school for first grade and I am very happy with the teachers and administration. Even the parents seem friendlier, perhaps because there aren't already neighborhood cliques in place since students come from numerous neighborhoods. The school's website is updated frequently and is helpful with keeping up with what is going on. I am hoping that my second child wins the lottery this year.

Harmony Science Academy is great school. Their staff is always friendly and their teachers are dedicated to the success of their students. I highly recommend this school to anyone wanting the very best for their child.

Overall, I am pleased with HSASA's commitment to education and the way the teachers obviously care about the kids. Happy enough to enroll them again for next year! There are lots of opportunities for creativity and to expand thinking outside the classroom with projects. That said, the school is not perfect. The first few weeks *always* seem disorganized for a school that has been around for so long. Activities are often revised at the last minute and teachers in the elem grades (my only experience) seem to be lax in follow-up. It's difficult to teach kids adhereance to deadlines when the teachers don't. Spanish and Turkish are the only language options, and extracurricular activities expand every year but still need to grow. The teachers care about the kids, there is no doubt. The kids love the teachers. Parental involvement is a must for success here.

Harmony Science Academy has given my daughter the best in education, compared to all the other schools she has been to in the past. They take pride in teaching the students and taking care of their safety while in school. The teachers are fantastic. they even let us parents know what is going on with our child. They seemed to really care. I love this school.

They are educational based and are more concerned about students understanding what they need to achieve to get into college. They also offer dual credit classes so that way I will have college credit when I graduate.

Harmony is the only school that feels like a private school. It has great highly qualified teachers whom care,(which is why it is an examplirary school), and the discipline there is outstanding. (Do not send your child there if they have disciplinary problems!) We take pride in our school with well-behaved kids, all of whom are eager in working as hard as possible to obtain a high education. There are so many kids from many different interesting backgrounds and different cultures that are great models. For all these reasons and much more, is why I drive my child to school all the way from Boerne area...

My daughter has been with Harmony since it opened it's doors. I must admit I was a little concerned . The first few weeks were chaos, but soon it became clear there was one objective; to challenge our children. At Harmony, the limits seem endless. I have no doubt that she will be will be well prepared for college.

Harmony is exceptional! I have never been a part of such a unique, involved, and caring school. The online component allows me to be completly aware of my daughter's day and the teachers are the best around. Harmony actually has home visits where the teachers visit the students home. That's above any standard I have ever seen. The webmaster is exceptional and the communication is top of the line. I am so pleased with the afterschool clubs, academics, and attitude of Harmony. Thank you!

Harmony is a small school with a low teacher to child ratio. The difference is day and night between public school and Harmony. Teachers go above and beyond to help students. The classes are challenging and will prepare my children for college. Our students will definately have an advantage over others starting with an emphasis on science and math at an early age. Courses include robotics and digital graphics. Physics and chemistry is the normal first year science course for 9th graders. They have several language selections to choose from and the school takes them on an international trip every year. Teachers are dedicated, accesible, and even do home visits. The best decision I ever made was to put my two children in this school.

Posted August 28, 2007

The reason I chose Harmony is its challenging and supportive environment. We encourage students to participate in various competitions and activities. They learn how to deal with a science fair at the 3rd grade. They try, find, and enjoy. Our staff and parents are like a family. Still, not with every parent. But I think that is a good ratio. Although our administration pushes us to do our best, I like them. They even helped me when I had some personal problems. That is one of the few schools a teacher can work without a doubt.

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.

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 Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) was used to test students in English language arts and mathematics in grade 11. The grade 11 exit Level TAKS is a high school graduation requirement. TAKS 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.

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.
