    Ive attended Harmony Science Academy ever since I was a freshmen and hopefully I will be able to graduate from there in May 2020. All the teachers I've had are really good at teaching and are really responsible in uploading our grades, so we can see if were either failing or passing . And they even stay after school or tutor on Saturdays. Although my school isn't really big like normal are any other high school my school is small and it is also near a highway which makes it not only dangerous, but there's also a lot of traffic in the morning and in the afternoon. It is a really diverse school and they try to have as many sports as they can afford and depending on how much equipment they can buy. The food is really not good and sometimes the food is expired, which is really dangerous for us the students because we can get food poisoning.

    I've been at Harmony since I was in the 2nd grade. All I knew was Harmony. Therefore, I think I can give a good review of the school and everything that resides inside of it.

    When it comes to teaching, it could go any way. I had some teachers who were really good at what they did, however, there were some teachers that didn't know what they were doing.

    When it comes to extracurricular activities, they put barely any effort into it. If they put the same effort into it like public schools, for example, many students that I know would have been able to get scholarships for the respective sports they play.
    Harmony is a school that makes certain that its students are brought up in a way that brings up prospective leaders/innovators of America. One quality that is truly aspiring about the school lies to be in the never ending changes that the school allows for its students to make. Unlike many that have a curriculum pre-made by the district as a whole, Harmony Science Academy effortlessly works to accustom its curriculum to students on an individual basis.
