    Harmony School of Advancement is a good school for STEM-focused students. The school offers a wide variety of AP, DC, and PLTW classes for students to get advanced hands on learning in a variety of subjects. The overall learning environment is more focused on the individual student, as compared to public schools, because the class sizes are a lot smaller! However, the school does not have the best athletics program or creative art program.

    The building itself isn't all that great-but that's to be expected for a charter school with limited government aid. It's tight and decently taken care of and thankfully doesn't distract from actual academics. The classes there are great, the AP courses really helps with students being able to achieve higher possibilities of entering a really good university. I'm glad that in this school environment there is a huge priority in academics, the pressure to succeed and the competition within really helps in future planning and career choices. However, there are some organization skills lacking in terms of teachers and schedule choices, and that may impede smooth transitionings from Freshmen year to Sophomore and so on.
    The school is an "ok" school. It has its positives and negatives. If you are looking for a school that mainly focuses on education, and books only this school is perfect for you. It will help you to get to a college, because it is an mandatory requirement to graduate. However if you are looking for a school that has the "high school experience" or even balances school work and extracurricular activities this school is really not for you. Yes, it does have its sport teams and clubs but they are not as well funded and passionate as other schools. Furthermore, it really just depends on what type of school you are looking for.
