You’re invited to take our website survey to find out if our website is meeting your needs. At Harmony, we want to be “in touch” with our community, so opening a feedback mechanism is a great way for you to participate in making decisions about the future of our work.

In this case, we need your valuable opinions on the design and overall usability of the site for our upcoming redesign.

It’s easy to take part in the survey and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete!

All we ask is that you be open and honest and give us your feelings on the website.

You don’t have to be a graphic designer, communications specialist, or even a web-developer to give feedback, all we want is your opinion as a website user – this will help us improve our communications and give us a chance to hear your ideas too!

Here are the Lunch Menus for January.



Harmony has agreement with Northwest Vista College (NVC) allowing all qualifying students to take Dual Credit college courses from NVC on campus or online. Currently Harmony is offering 4 college courses on campus during the regular class schedule for 11th and 12th graders in addition to any available courses they can take at NVC.

Harmony Public Schools joins the country in mourning the loss of President George H.W. Bush, a leader known as the “education president” for his tireless devotion to America’s schoolchildren.

A statewide Day of Mourning has been declared by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, to allow Texans to pay their respects to President Bush. All Harmony Public School campuses will remain open and operating on their regular schedule on this date.

Today is #GivingTuesday , the National Day of giving back to others. This year, we ask that you join us in giving to some of Harmony’s exceptional young minds by supporting the Harmony College Fund as part of our own Harmony Giving Day.
The Harmony College Fund (HCF) was founded to support college-bound Harmony alumni through scholarships, mentoring, internships and other support services. Roughly two-thirds of our students come from economically disadvantaged homes or neighborhoods, and without these funds, many of our HCF recipients would not be financially able to complete their college and career success journeys.
During the first Harmony Giving Day in 2017, our generous donors helped Harmony raise more than $40,000, which was dispersed to 44 college students attending universities across Texas. You can donate through our Facebook campaign or on the link below:
There are more than 6,500 Harmony graduates and most come from low-income families. Harmony Giving Day aims to raise funds for Harmony Students in college. Help us make Harmony student’s college and career dreams possible!
Don’t forget to watch the short video to see how your donation helps.

Class of 2019

Catch up with the latest PTO news.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
   Good Evening! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce my self.My name is Mr. Rodriguez and I am the new Student Discipline Coordinator for 6th and 7th Grade. Previously, I was in the Army for 8 years.This is now my 6th year with Harmony. Within my tenure, I was a PE and Social Studies Teacher with the Harmony Austin District.  I am both eager and excited to become an active participant in your child’s life.
   It is with great privilege to be at Harmony Science Academy. My goal is to meet the needs of our students with support of parents/guardians and teachers.To minimize our discipline issues, while increasing the safety and positivity of our campus along with Mr. James. Here are some beliefs related to discipline at Harmony Science Academy:
  • Expected behavior must be communicated, taught and modeled throughout the school year.
  • Every disciplinary infraction is an opportunity to teach expected behavior.
  • All students will have access to learning opportunities; this should not be hindered by other student’s behavior.
  • The misbehavior of one student will not be allowed to interfere with the learning opportunities of other students.
  • Students are expected to complete all learning objectives, regardless of behavior.
  • The misbehavior of a student will not excuse him/her from successfully completing learning objectives.
  • Parents are our equal partners and have a responsibility to ensure that their children’s behaviors do not take away from a safe, orderly and academically productive learning environment of others.
* Please keep in mind that each situation will be handled appropriately by the Administration team.
While this is a brief introduction, I would also like to highlight a few important policies and guidelines. Please note this is to ensure the safety and security of all students, staff, and parents.
If you have any questions please review the Student Handbook (see attached) or feel contact me.
Items to be reviewed:
·       Harmony Student Dress Code
·       Visitor Policy
·       Absences Policy – Absences – excused and unexcused
·       Tardiness to School Policy
·       Makeup Work Policy
·       Loitering Policy
**Please note: This is a brief overview, the Harmony Student/Parent handbook contains more detailed information, please review this information in the Student handbook as well.I will continue you to update you with any disciplinary updates.
I am a strong believer in communication, the success of a school behavior lies in the relationship built between parents, staff
and students of the school community.


Our goal is that all students follow school-wide behavior expectations. When we observe them treating others with kindness, trying their best, and being respectful, we acknowledge them by giving positive verbal feedback and other positive incentives.
