Dress Code

Finishing the year in the properly academically and behaviorally. Starting on Monday, April 16, 2018, we will be strictly enforcing dress code. That means uniform shirts will be worn, Monday through Thursday, and the option for spirit shirts will be on Friday’s only. There will be NO JEANS, JEGGINGS, LEGGINGS, OR TIGHTS! Non-Harmony jackets, sweatshirts or hoodies will be prohibited in the halls, classrooms, cafeteria, and gym.
We will also begin to strictly enforce our cell phone and ear bud/phone policy. This means any cell phone confiscated will be given directly to the front office and parents will need to pay $10.00, by credit card or cashier check, to the front office to receive the phone. We will also not allow head phone, ear phone, ear buds inside the halls, classroom, cafeteria, or gym at any time during school hours.
We believe that ending the year just slightly stricter will help us, and the students, maintain their focus on what matters…their education. We want to thank all the students for their confidence and commitment to Harmony School of Business.

T-STEM

Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Initiative (T-STEM)

Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (T-STEM) Academies are rigorous secondary schools focusing on improving instruction and academic performance in science and mathematics-related subjects and increasing the number of students who study and enter STEM careers. T-STEM Academies are demonstration schools and learning labs that develop innovative methods to improve science and mathematics instructions.

Prior to the 2011-2012 school year, the only path to become a T-STEM Academy was a T-STEM Academy grant through the Texas Education Agency or one of the private partners in the Texas High School Project.

Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year, a second pathway was created. Campuses, using local or other sources of funding, that are implementing the T-STEM Design Blueprint with fidelity may apply to be designated as a T-STEM Academy. T-STEM campuses are designated based on a rigorous designation process. Once a campus is designated, professional development and technical assistance are provided to designated T-STEM academies to serve as demonstration schools and learning labs to showcase innovative instruction methods which integrate technology and engineering into science and mathematics instruction. Designated T-STEM campuses serve students in grades 6-12 or 9-12.

STAAR Testing Dates

We expect all of our students to have an equal opportunity to be successful on the STAAR test as well as End of Course Exams. In order to accomplish this goal, we ask each student to refrain from causing distractions during testing.
Misconduct could result in a student’s test being voided by the state and other disciplinary consequences. Please refer to pg. 41 in our handbook under “Examination Procedures” for Details. We are asking all parents to speak to your child about these expectations so that everyone has a successful testing season.

During STAAR testing week all after school clubs and tutorials are canceled.

Now Accepting Applications for 2018 - 2019 Enrollment
