This is an amazing school. The principal has implemented a Leader in Me program that helps promote student led learning. Our son is fully aware of his performance and goals and updates us regularly on his progress. His teachers go above and beyond to make every child feel special and loved. The art integration leaves something to be desired...but overall this school seems to be one of the few that has effectively balanced the desire for great test scores, with the need for enriched, meaningful learning.

I have 2 kids attending this school. My son is in 5th grade and is excited about moving on to Ike, however he will greatly miss all teachers and staff that he grew up knowing throughout the years. All his teachers adore him and tell me often how they miss him in their class. I just had a 1st grade teacher tell me tonite that my son was the most respectable boy she has ever met. She said she considers him one of the top leaders of the school. I felt so proud. My daughter is following in those footsteps as well. She is only in 2nd but she has been there since pre-k. I only have had good experiences with staff. Everyone is willing to give that extra hand to help out anyway they can.

I am not happy with any of the new protcols that this school has implemented pertaining to the children's drop-off and pick-up procedures. Too many rules in place if you ask me, it makes it more time consuming, causes confusion and parent aggravation.

My husband & I have lived in Harmony Hills 13 yrs & have sent all 3 children to Harmony Hills. Our oldest graduated from Churchill & he had the most learning challenges that Harmony Hills acknowledged with wonderful support. Our middle child now attends Eisenhower is NJHS, 4.0 grade average & in honors band which all stemmed from the Excellent teachers he enjoyed having at Harmony Hills which always ask about him when we are seen on campus picking up our youngest. Our youngest is enjoying school so much he gets perfect attendance & even on sick days refuses to miss school. He has been awarded every report card A/B Honor Roll. I give all the credit where it is due. The teachers! He also had a reading disability & the staff worked hard with him to challenge him & not give up with lots of positive encouragement. Through it all he developed a love for reading. We've chosen to keep our children in the same school district just so all our kids could go to Harmony Hills cause it's the younger yrs of their education that matters on how it all begins. Its not just the teachers, the whole staff, principle & the PTA is great! Be involved in your kids, meet deadlines lead by example.

From day one I have had issues with this school, within 2 months of enrollment, they lost my youngest daughters enrollment records, and we had to resend all of her immunization and birth records. My oldest daughter joined choir, and I had to pay $16 for a shirt, on their first choir performence, she was going to be excluded for not wearing black shoes, and was told not to show up for her second performance at the school that night, if she was not wearing them. My oldest daughter also got a write-up for pushing on the bus, but when my youngest was pushed on the bus, the busdriver claimed they did not see it, I watched it happen. My oldest was not allowed to go on a third choir trip, because she did not have thier signed permission slip, even though she had a signed note from myself saying she had permission. We will be pulling our kids out of this school in the very near future!

I have a 6 yr old that started this year and loves it. He is doing great in all his work and can't stop talking about his teachers. There is always some sort of activity going on for the children as well as there families. Not a day goes by that he hasn't learned something new. Great school and great teachers.

I have had children at Harmony Hills since 1993 (my first child is now in college studying biomedical engineering and my 8 year old is now in 3rd grade). My experience with this school has been wonderful: from the huge amount of support (especially after-school tutoring), the wonderful GT program, the incredibly warm and knowledgeable Library staff, to the variety of after-school programs (chess, art, orchestra, cub scouts...)and family events (Sock Hop, Health Fair...). This is a very safe school, with strict monitoring of people coming in and out.

Our daughter has been at Harmony Hills since pre-k. We are very happy with the focus the teachers put on the coursework as well as additional help if needed. We will be staying in this district!

I am concerned with the quality of academics.I strongly agree that education starts at home but I am concerned for my 4th grader. I feel like the class is behind on everything. I have had a great experience for the past 5 years but we are looking to the future. I don't want one year to throw my child off and put him behind. We have enjoyed our time here but will remove our child for the second half of the year.

I pulled my son out of HH in Grade 2. Any day you could stand in the halls and hear screaming at young children. My son was sent to an ADHD group without my consent - he did not have ADHD. The teacher showed him PET scans and told him his brain was different than other kids. They used zero tolerance (no moving, no talking, no skipping) from kinder. Early elem children are NOT developmentally able to demonstrate SELF CONTROL. They used shame as a form of discipline - excluding kids from the 'Pride Club' if they moved in line, called out ect.
