We would like to inform you that Harmony School of Technology Teachers are 100% highly qualified. As a requirement of No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), Title I school parents must be notified if their child has been taught for 4 or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified. If that would be a case in future, Principal Mr. Aydin will send a notification letter to you.

Dear HST Parents,
Many of you who attended Title I Parent Meeting in October 5, 2017 may recall the Comprehensive Needs Assessment (CNA) Committees. I had briefly explained the purpose of these committees and invited parents to sign up. I wanted to thank the parents who volunteered for these committees. To reiterate, each year Harmony School of Technology administrators, teachers, parents and students meet together in a series of CNA committees to discuss and provide feedback about the areas of strengths and areas of improvement in our school. Right now, we are in the process of completing these committees. Please come, join in one of these committees, and let us hear your valuable opinions/suggestions.
What are the CNA Committees?
- Student Achievement
- School Culture and Climate
- Staff Quality, Recruitment and Retention
- Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment
- Family and Community Involvement
- School Context and Organization
How Many Participants in Each Committee? What Are the Meeting Dates?
Typical CNA Committee has 4 -10 participants meets about 1 to 1.5 hours (early in the morning or in the afternoon). All CNA committee meetings are planned to take place in February. The dates may range from Monday, Feb 5 through Monday, Feb 12. If you know for sure that you are available that week, please volunteer!
How to be a Volunteer for a CNA Committee?
Please email me at email@example.com. Provide me with a name, current phone number, and email address. Lastly, please include the name of committee in which you would prefer to volunteer. You can volunteer for multiple committees.

It is with great delight that I announce the first ever HPS Parent Academy at Harmony School of Advancement, Technology, Enrichment on Saturday, January 13, 2018. Since we believe that each child is an individual of great worth, our parents need to be integral partners. We know that parents have a huge impact in their children’s lives and are in fact their children’s first and most important teachers. The HPS Parent Academy is a district initiative that strives more directly engage parents in their children’s education and prepare them to provide support needed in order for the students to be more successful in school.
The Academy consists of a series of inspirational sessions covering a wide variety of topics – from how to help your children in reading and math to bullying prevention, how to engage children’s cooperation and immigration FAQs. It is our hope that as you attend these sessions, you will gain valuable information regarding diverse tools, strategies, and resources that help nurture student’s academic, social, and emotional development.
On behalf of our organizing committee, I look forward to a wonderful time of learning and networking with you and other parents.

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.
