Why I choose Harmony Public Schools: The Faces of Harmony

Jasmine at HSANA says, "I love Harmony because we are a small community! We are so close to one another...Like a family."

HSS hosts Police Chief Art Acevedo

Harmony School of Science had the honor of hosting Austin's own Chief of Police for a student assembly.

Harmony Science Academy Ribbon Cutting

In 2002, HPS opened its second ever campus right here in Austin on Rundberg Lane in a remodeled church building. The waitlist at this campus continued to grow every year but the school structure did not allow for more students. On August 20th, the day arrived for HSA to open it's new doors. The families that we serve have dreamed of this new building for years. We celebrated the milestone in the HPS family in November with the Rundberg community.

HSPS shows support for Anthony

Anthony, a sophomore at Harmony School of Political Science, fell ill in early August and was misdiagnosed with Epilepsy. After spending time at the hospital, Anthony was diagnosed with Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephhalitis, a rare auto-immune disorder that affects the brain. After spending 9 weeks in the hospital, Anthony is still undergoing outpatient treatment to relearn speech, fine motor skills, memory, and coordination. HSPS has promoted awareness for "Anthony's Fight" and are thankful each Austin campus showed support by wearing his favorite color green.

Harmony Promotes Literacy and Learning

Harmony School of Innovation turned their school into Camp Read-A-Lot! The family fun event featured fun games and activities to promote the love of reading. Each classroom was transformed to host different activities such as Reading Under the Stars and Puppet Pals.

To encourage student success on the STAAR test, HSI teachers volunteered to take a Pie in the Face. Students with top scores were able to choose any teacher to "pie" as a reward for their hard work!
