WHAT WE BELIEVE

Every child isn’t the same. So why should every school be?

Harmony Public Schools believes each student can achieve their own unique, full potential through a caring and collaborative academic environment that emphasizes personalized learning and innovative instructional methods.

WHAT MAKES HARMONY DIFFERENT

Engaging Education: Our project-based learning engages critical thinking skills and makes learning fun with hands-on activities that educate and excite.

Skills for Tomorrow: Our curriculum has been recognized by the TEA & others for providing students the STEM skills they need for the in-demand jobs of the future.

College Ready: Harmony has a 100% college acceptance rate, and almost two-thirds of our students are the first in their families ever to attend college.

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does Harmony Public Schools charge tuition to attend?

Absolutely not. Harmony is a tuition-free, Texas public charter school. We believe every student deserves the opportunity to attend a high-quality public school that fits their individual needs regardless of income. 

Who is eligible to attend Harmony Public Schools?

All children residing in a Harmony school’s geographic boundary who meet registration requirements are eligible to attend. Unlike most other schools, though, Harmony’s geographic boundaries are much wider and generally include the entire community in which the school resides, meaning that all students in the area – regardless of neighborhood or family income level – have the same opportunity to attend a high-quality Harmony school.

What documents do I need to apply?

No documents are needed just to apply. However, if your child is selected for enrollment during the lottery process, you will need to provide a few basic documents that verify your child’s identity and home address.

I have a child in Harmony already, and would like to enroll their sibling for the first time. Do I still need to apply?

Yes. Siblings of current Harmony students still need to apply, but are given priority status if a campus lottery is needed.

Reminder: No classes on Monday, October 14th, for staff development.

The playground work has started! (Check out this photo).

Without you, this will just remain a hole in the ground. We need volunteers! Only about 35 Harmony family members have signed up (not including staff). Your number one concern has always been a playground. Your students helped design this playground. Awesome structures are coming thanks to the generosity of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas. We are getting a much nicer playground than we ever would have otherwise. We’ve asked for very little fundraising in relation to the playground, but we do need you to volunteer.

We need 450+ people on Saturday, October 5th. We also need 40+ people on October 3rd and 20+ people on October 4th (basically all day for each of those days).  If you can’t come, please find a friend or family member who can. If every family sent one person, we would have more than enough.

Students that bring 1 or more volunteers will enter a raffle to win a new bike! The classroom that has the most students bringing 1 or more volunteers will get a classroom party!

Please register in BOTH of the following links:

https://harmonyenchrichment.eventbrite.com – This is the KaBOOM! registration and includes needed waiver forms

https://forms.gle/jXiFNhtUYgeb3V8dA – This is a Harmony form and will help us know where to assign you and if you want to be a team leader

Feel free to reply with questions. Thank you so much for volunteering!

¡El trabajo del patio de recreo ha comenzado! (Mira esta foto).

Sin Ud., esto seguirá siendo un agujero en el suelo. ¡Necesitamos voluntarios! Solo unos 35 miembros de familia de Harmony se han inscrito (sin incluir al personal). Su principal preocupación siempre ha sido un patio de recreo. Sus estudiantes ayudaron a diseñar este patio de recreo. Se vienen estructuras impresionantes gracias a la generosidad de Blue Cross y Blue Shield of Texas. Estamos obteniendo un patio de recreo mucho más bonito que el que tendríamos de otra manera. Hemos pedido muy poca recaudación de fondos en relación con el patio de recreo, pero necesitamos que sea voluntario.

Necesitamos más de 450 personas el sábado 5 de octubre. También necesitamos más de 40 personas el 3 de octubre y más de 20 personas el 4 de octubre (básicamente todo el día para cada uno de esos días). Si no puede venir, busque un amigo o familiar que pueda hacerlo. Si cada familia enviara a una persona, tendríamos más que suficiente.

¡Los estudiantes que traigan 1 o más voluntarios participarán en una rifa para ganar una bicicleta nueva! ¡El salón de clases que tiene la mayoría de los estudiantes con 1 o más voluntarios tendrá una fiesta en el salón de clases!

Por favor regístrese en AMBOS de los siguientes enlaces:

https://harmonyenchrichment.eventbrite.com – este es el registro de KaBOOM! e incluye los formularios de exención necesarios

https://forms.gle/jXiFNhtUYgeb3V8dA – este es un formulario de Harmony y nos ayudará a saber dónde asignarlo y si desea ser un líder de equipo

No dude en responder con preguntas. ¡Muchas gracias por ser voluntario!

Enrichment is closed Friday, September 20. Classes will resume Monday, September 23. Please stay safe and inform the principal if you have sustained any damage from the rain.

Enrichment está cerrado el viernes 20 de septiembre. Las clases comienzan de nuevo el lunes 23 de septiembre. Manténgase seguro e informe al director si ha sufrido algún daño por la lluvia.

“We are very happy to continue to reward our staff for their dedication to excellence,” said Fatih Ay, CEO of Harmony Public Schools. “Every year our 34,000 plus students consistently exceed state education standards. Our teacher’s hard work is recognized annually by major publications, such as US News Best High Schools, and noted children’s advocacy groups.”

In addition to a base salary increase of between $3,500 & $5,000, teachers will be awarded a stipend of $1,000 if they have between 5 and 9 years of classroom experience. Those with more than 10 years’ experience will receive $2,000. “We see this as an investment not only in our teachers but in our students as well,” Ay said.

The new salary schedule follows Governor Greg Abbott’s signing of the $11.5 Billion school finance reform package. Harmony chose to target additional funding into pay & benefits for teachers and staff. These increases have been presented to the HPS Board of Directors, and will be up for approval after receiving regulations from TEA.
