Chromebook Study

As you know, with the funding from Race to The Top District grant, Harmony Public Schools started a 1:1 technology initiative in the beginning of this school year, and handed a chrome book device to every single student and core subject teacher in grades 6 thru 12. All Harmony educators and leaders see this initiative as a tremendous opportunity to personalize student learning and radically improve achievement. With the right approach, leveraging technology can yield promising academic results and boost performance both for students and teachers. In an effort to assess effectiveness and improve our technology initiative, Harmony Public Schools intends to conduct a scholarly research on how technology integration into classrooms impacts students, teachers, and parents. This research will help school and district leaders at Harmony to make sound research-based judgments about future design and refinement of our technology programs. It will also give us a chance to get input from our most valued stakeholders. The researcher will keep participant identities confidential and will not release it to any Harmony employees, nor will he link any identities to survey inputs. We are excited about this research opportunity and would definitely like to see all our teachers, parents, and students participate as much as possible. Thank you for your continued support!

Seven Harmony Schools Made Newsweek's Top Schools List

Newsweek's Top Schools List LogoNewsweek has announced America's Best High Schools where seven Harmony schools have made into the list.

Harmony Science Academy - Bryan/College Station, Harmony School of Advancement (Houston), Harmony Science Academy Fort Worth, Harmony Science Academy (Houston), Harmony Science Academy El Paso, Harmony Science Academy Dallas, Harmony Science Academy-North Austin are the campuses that made into Newsweek's list.

Newsweek has also identified Top 25 Transformative High Schools in which four Harmony Schools are also featured.

HSA Bryan/College Station, HSA El Paso, HSA Houston, and HSA Dallas became America's 25 transformative schools who did the most with the least resources.

In 2011, two Harmony campuses were also named as the Miracle Schools by Newsweek.


Four Harmony Campuses Made into the Challenge Index

Washington Post LogoWashington Post has announced its Most Challenging High Schools list of 2012. Four Harmony high schools made the Challenge Index and three of them in the top 100 out of 1900 schools in the list.

The Challenge Index of Washington Post ranks high schools since 1998 based on the student achievement on IB, AP, and college level tests (SAT, ACT, etc.) and graduation rates. The index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in 2011 divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E). A (P) next to the school's name denotes a private school.

See the detailed list here.
