Show Your Support!!
Dear Harmony Families,
As we launched the new semester and the New Year, we would like to welcome you back and ask for your support in creating another successful year for our students. Harmony Public Schools is about to complete 15 years of excellence in service to our communities, and we could not have done this without your support. Our goal is to continue to provide exemplary educational and enrichment opportunities to our students during the school day and beyond at ever expanding levels. Gladly we are announcing that the construction of our new Middle-High School building starts in very near future and we are expanding the size of our school next year.
As a public charter school, we are funded on a per-student basis by the state which pays for only the essential core academic services. These funds are not designated for extracurricular activities, clubs, or field trips. Studies have shown that these types of extracurricular activities are critical to the holistic academic and social development which enrich our student’s educational experiences and enhance their academic accomplishments.
