    School has it's average school needs but does have heart overall as a school. I've been at this school for 10 years, I've been through the changes the school has tried to do. Even though the school tried some changes the extra needs such as funding for sports is where they lacked. Now they lack in the area, but they over achieve in the area of making sure their students learn the basics of the education.

    Harmony is a good school overall. Its primary strength is how much parental involvement is there. The teacher is very good at what they do and will do anything to help students that are struggling with any course. Clubs can be made either by the students or the teacher, sports has increased but is still lacking. Its resource isn't that vast like regular public school, but you will get the same quality or more when it comes to academics.
    I have attended Harmony School of Excellence for an ongoing 9 years. As I am currently in my senior year, I have not only obtained many lifelong memories and values, but have come to appreciate such campus in ways beyond belief.
