25 Parent Reviews for Harmony Science Academy - Austin

My children have attended this school for the two+ years we have lived in Austin, having attended HSE in Houston prior, and I've found this school to be excellent. It is an exemplary school and the standard is high, and my children are doing very well here. The teachers truly care and give extra effort ...  Read more

I will never let my own kids go to this school after having seen it from the inside. The principal has created a toxic environment which can't help but to trickle into the classrooms. She targets staff (and students) if she feels they are challenging her. This has lead to a very high turnover rate. That ...  Read more

I also taught at Harmony School of Excellence. I've taught for 15 years, but have never seen a school mismanaged to this extent. There is a huge riff between the American and Turkish Teachers. The Turks are here on a "High Need Visa." Harmony Schools has more of these Visa's than the technology industry ...  Read more

Being a former employee, I have somewhat of a unique perspective. The majority of the staff is some of the most hard working individuals I have had the pleasure of working with. Then there are the Turkish members of the staff, most of which I am sure have never taken a teaching course or have never ...  Read more

We pulled our daughter out of the Del Valle ISD. Harmony is a far better school than Del Valle; Bastrop schools are worse than Del Valle so I understand the comments of one of the other parents. While I like the curriculum we don't like the lack of physical education, the actions like "no Halloween" ...  Read more

The teachers focus on learning. The program is about the basics with no fluff. While there are certainly some issues with SOME teachers language skills, those aren't the ones teaching English. They are teaching science and other subjects. And they DO know their stuff. And the teachers here LOVE what ...  Read more

My son has only been in this school for two weeks. This school is unfair when it comes to making decisions on discipline. My son and I had a conference with the Dean of Discipline and he brought up an issue that a group of girls wrote a complaint aganist my son. He presented us with the documents the ...  Read more

We will be pulling our daughter out of this school and we are sending her back to her Round Rock ISD school, which was good. They have been completely disorganized from day one. My daughter has been there almost a week and has still not received her class schedule, or a locker that works. The teachers ...  Read more
