Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Initiative (T-STEM)
Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (T-STEM) Academies are rigorous secondary schools focusing on improving instruction and academic performance in science and mathematics-related subjects and increasing the number of students who study and enter STEM careers. T-STEM Academies are demonstration schools and learning labs that develop innovative methods to improve science and mathematics instructions.
Prior to the 2011-2012 school year, the only path to become a T-STEM Academy was a T-STEM Academy grant through the Texas Education Agency or one of the private partners in the Texas High School Project.
Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year, a second pathway was created. Campuses, using local or other sources of funding, that are implementing the T-STEM Design Blueprint with fidelity may apply to be designated as a T-STEM Academy. T-STEM campuses are designated based on a rigorous designation process. Once a campus is designated, professional development and technical assistance are provided to designated T-STEM academies to serve as demonstration schools and learning labs to showcase innovative instruction methods which integrate technology and engineering into science and mathematics instruction. Designated T-STEM campuses serve students in grades 6-12 or 9-12.

We would like to inform you of a few changes to the labelling of “Pre-AP” courses. According to the College Board, there are new requirements for calling a course “Pre-AP.” These requirements can be found in detail here (https://pre-ap.collegeboard.org), but in summation Harmony Public Schools will be changing the titles of all courses formerly designated “Pre-AP” to “Honors.”
- Will this affect my GPA?
- No. Courses will still carry the same weights.
- Will the content of the class change?
- No. All course content will remain the same as when it was called “Pre-AP;” it is only the name of the course that is changing.
- Will the name “Pre-AP” ever return?
- Yes. The title of “Pre-AP” will return to courses within the next few years, beginning with 9th and 10th grade English, as we work to transition to College Board’s new requirements.
- Why is this happening?
- College Board is attempting to further align and trademark the AP/Pre-AP brand, and therefore no school can call a course “Pre-AP” until they have fully implemented the new changes. This is a process that will take time, but which will NOT affect the content of courses as they are currently.
- I’m still concerned; where can I find more information?
- College Board website (link above)
- Campus Administration
- Pre-AP/AP Teachers
Harmony Public Schools
Estimados Padres y Tutores,
Queremos informarles de unos cambios a los nombres de nuestros cursos llamados “Pre-Ap”. De acuerdo con College Board, hay nuevos requisitos para poder llamar a un curso “Pre-Ap”. Estos requisitos pueden ser encontrados en detalle en: (https://pre-ap.collegeboard.org). Como resultado de estos cambios, Harmony Public Schools estará cambiando los títulos de todos los cursos antes llamados “Pre-Ap” a “Honors”.
¿Afectará mi GPA este cambio?
No, los cursos seguirán teniendo el mismo valor académico.
¿Cambiará el contenido de la clase?
No, todo el contenido seguirá siendo el mismo como cuando se llamaba “Pre-Ap”, es simplemente el nombre del curso el que cambiará.
¿Volverá el titulo “Pre-Ap”?
Si, El título “Pre-Ap” volverá a los cursos en los próximos años, comenzando con los grados 9 y 10. Mientras estamos trabajando en la transición a los nuevos requisitos de College Board.
¿Por qué está sucediendo este cambio?
College Board está intentando alinear y registrar la marca de AP/Pre-Ap, por lo tanto, ninguna escuela puede llamar un curso “Pre-Ap” hasta que se hayan implementado completamente los nuevos cambios. Esto es un proceso que tomará tiempo, pero que NO afectará el contenido de los cursos tal como son actualmente.
Todavía estoy preocupado, ¿dónde puedo encontrar más información?

Build a career at Harmony Public Schools
We are now accepting applications from certified ESL and Bilingual Teachers.
Harmony staff, teachers, and administrators have spent countless of hours preparing our students for college and each year approximately 85% of our graduating class enrolled in a post-secondary institution.
But, despite these impressive enrollment numbers, far too many of our low income and first-time college students drop out as they hit financial and circumstantial barriers such as the cost of attending college, that has increased by 36% in the last 10 years. Harmony Public Schools has 5,033 graduates to date and is projected to have 11,686 graduates by 2020, current funding sources are unable to meet even the current demands of these programs. Clearly, additional financial support is required.
We are asking our Harmony community to consider going beyond educational efforts, providing even greater assistance to our graduates through generous Harmony Giving Day contributions to the Harmony College Fund. All your donations will go towards helping our Harmony graduates to complete their higher education dreams and achieve their career aspirations by providing additional scholarships and direct college and career support services.
Let’s come together to reach our target of raising $50,000 on our first ever giving day.
Thank you for your generosity.
