When it comes to our school we're all one big dysfunctional family. Our school is so small that everyone knows one another. Our graduating senior class is 125 students! There is a large sense of community in this school. As for resources, our school offers a lot of resources and amenities for STEM related fields, like our robotics room for example. However, for the students that have more creative and sports related interests not much is offered for them. Sadly, that is something that will not change because Harmony focuses more on STEM fields, they choose not to pay much mind to other subjects.

Harmony School of Advancement is a school that cares about their students future and want all kids to succeed. The staff and students all care about each others accomplishments and is a very encouraging school. Also, Harmony School of Advancement offers students the ability to pursue STEM careers. Students are able to perform hands on experiments and get the help they need to be successful in their academic abilities. However, a change that I would personally like to see happen is having additional electives that may not put as much stress on students and the STEM classes do. Having hardcore classes all the time can burn out a student. Add some more electives wouldn't hurt and would let kids explore more things they like to do.
Harmony is a good place to go, if you intend to just apply for academics. In that area, it is superb with high quality AP teachers and exemplary focus on academics. With that, it's accompanied with good security, little to no bullying and lots of diversity, so that you won't feel lonely. Trade off is the school culture is pretty absent, and the food wholesomely lacking in quality. The counselors should be better equipped and more involved with students. (Although new counselors came this year.)

For academics, great school. Other areas, could use some help.
