“We are very happy to continue to reward our staff for their dedication to excellence,” said Fatih Ay, CEO of Harmony Public Schools. “Every year our 34,000 plus students consistently exceed state education standards. Our teacher’s hard work is recognized annually by major publications, such as US News Best High Schools, and noted children’s advocacy groups.”

In addition to a base salary increase of between $3,500 & $5,000, teachers will be awarded a stipend of $1,000 if they have between 5 and 9 years of classroom experience. Those with more than 10 years’ experience will receive $2,000. “We see this as an investment not only in our teachers but in our students as well,” Ay said.

The new salary schedule follows Governor Greg Abbott’s signing of the $11.5 Billion school finance reform package. Harmony chose to target additional funding into pay & benefits for teachers and staff. These increases have been presented to the HPS Board of Directors, and will be up for approval after receiving regulations from TEA.

Hi everyone!!!

Here is the summer reading assignment along with the myON supplement.
Thank you
Dear Students,
All students taking an AP course will be responsible for the AP summer assignment, and it will be graded as a major assignment in Q1.
Student’s participation in an official AP exam is an integral part of an AP course. Collegeboard will implement Fall AP Exam registration in 2019-20 school year, and HSA-Houston requires all AP Students to enroll in the exam. You can all AP Changes from this linkhttps://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/ap-2019


We created a website for our robotics team.


Each year we spend many hours organizing the master schedule. All of our students received their 2017-18 school year schedule on May 3rd. We have created a schedule change policy to enable our students and families to understand how to change their student’s schedule.

Schedule changes will not be made based on lunch, period, or teacher preferences. Your schedule reflects what you signed up for during spring course selection.

Ø  Level changes do not begin until week 4 of the new school year. Students are expected to seek support from their teachers prior to a level change.

Ø   No elective course changes will be made after May 31st, 2019.

 Schedule Change Requests will only be available by May 31st.

 Forms will only be accepted after this day for the following reasons:

  1. The student has already successfully completed the course, for example, in summer school.
  2. There is a duplicate course on the schedule.
  3. The course is needed to fulfill a graduation requirement.
  4. The student has been placed in an incorrect level of the course.
  5. The student is scheduled incorrectly as a result of inadequate or erroneous information.

Please submit the completed Schedule Change Request form to your counselor for consideration.
