Dear Harmony Families & Team Members,

Welcome back!

With a new year comes new opportunities and a time for new beginnings. We believe this school year is going to be filled with more opportunities than ever for achievement, exploration, and inspiration for our students and team members across Texas.

This year, Harmony is proud to welcome its largest class ever – roughly 42,000 students – to our 60 campuses. Harmony also experienced its largest batch of new student applicants – more than 50,000 – for this school year. Neither of these accomplishments could have been possible without the support of our Harmony families and staff members sharing the good word about their school with friends, neighbors, and families. For that, we owe you our thanks.

Whether your family is new to Harmony or you’ve been with us for years, Harmony will offer each of our scholars the same high-quality, STEM-focused education filled with opportunities to connect and engage with their schools, teachers, and classmates.

Though it has been only a few days since the first of our schools opened for the 2022-23 school year, already we have some exciting news to share. This week, the Texas Education Agency released its first State Accountability Ratings since the start of the pandemic. We are excited to report that five HPS districts and 23 HPS campuses earned a perfect “A” rating on this key report. Two districts and 32 campuses also received “B” ratings. Collectively, Harmony was the highest scoring major Texas charter school network in terms of the percentage of campuses which scored a “B” or better.

These results come on the heels of some extraordinary spring STAAR test results, which found that statewide not only had most of our students made up any achievement loss caused by the COVID pandemic, but in the majority of our schools, our students actually scored higher than they did pre-pandemic. Despite these successes, the work to help our students fully rebound from the pandemic will continue throughout 2022-23, as we continue to emphasize additional learning acceleration and ongoing emotional well-being support for our students.

Our TEA Ratings and STAAR scores are just a couple of the reasons why we’re so excited to begin another school year, but there are plenty more. In addition to our normal annual programs and initiatives, Harmony will be focusing on several key areas this school year:


  • School culture and climates of character will continue to be a primary focus for all of our campuses. The positive results of this ongoing initiative already are plain to see. Systemwide, we have seen a dramatic drop in behavioral incidents at our campuses, as an increase in counselor staffing is helping to better support students before possible issues arise. HPS also is proud to share that in 2021-22, three of our campuses were named National Schools of Character, making a total of seven HPS national winners in the past three years. Thirteen campuses have also been named State Schools of Character. We expect several other campuses to earn these honors this year.


  • We will continue to focus on school safety measures and scientific-based health protocols to keep our students and staff safe and focused on achievement. Over the summer, each of our schools conducted additional campus safety training, including security audits of their points of entry. This is in addition to the long-standing security measures already in place, which include yearly safety audits, which exceed the TEA requirement of once every three years. We will continue to work to increase the safety of our school communities, as keeping our students and team members safe is our highest priority.


  • For our former students, we will continue to offer a number of assistance programs to ensure their long-term success after HPS. First, the HPS Alumni Career Center will provide ongoing support and services to assist them with career development, job placement, and long-term success. Next, Harmony is extending its postsecondary support services with the new Alumni College Coaching program. The program aims to provide on-college campus coaching, and monthly success workshops to increase Harmony graduates’ enrollment, retention, and more importantly their college completion. It will be piloted at three universities this fall: the University of Houston, University of Houston-Downtown, and North American University. Finally, our College & Career counselors are wrapping up a successful season of “summer melt” intervention to make sure last year’s graduating seniors become this year’s entering college freshmen. Across our system, HPS made personal contact with 94% of our Class of 2022 to make sure they are still enrolled in college, have their financial aid in order, and know when and where to be on Day 1 of college.


  • To help prepare our students for the workforce, we will continue to expand our Career & Technical Education (CTE) and Industry-Based Certification (IBC) programs. Harmony currently offers more than 650 career pathways courses in 10 different fields, including Biomedical Science, Engineering, Programming & Software Development, Accounting & Financial Services, and Business Management, among others. In 2021-22, HPS invested more than $19 million in federal funds into these programs, allowing more than 15,000 students to get a jumpstart on the future careers of their dreams.


  • Through our Harmony Partners in Education program, we will continue to seek businesses, volunteers, and other community members who can bring resources and opportunities to our schools and students. During 2021-22, Partners in Education matched more than 1,000 partners with school projects across our system.


  • For students interested in a career in public service, HPS will continue to expand its rapidly-growing Service Leadership Society, which already is among the largest of any school system in the state. Harmony’s SLS program is dedicated to encouraging civic engagement among our students and exposing them to leadership opportunities within their communities while at the same time, allowing them to interact with elected officials and their staff.


  • To continue supporting the continued influx of interest in Harmony, we are continuing to add new campuses and expand others. This school year, HPS debuts two new campuses – Harmony School of Excellence-Katy and Harmony School of Science-San Antonio – as well as four additional major campus expansions. We’re also breaking ground on three others – in El Paso, Fort Worth, and Leander – this school year.


As you can see, we all have a lot to look forward to this year.

On behalf of our team members, faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you and your family to the 2022- 2023 school year. We look forward to getting to know your family better this school year and sharing all that Harmony has to offer.

We are Harmony Proud of all the hard-working teachers and students who helped our campus earn a post-pandemic “A” accountability rating by the Texas Education Agency! Way to go, Harmony School of Technology!

Dear Parents & Guardians,


We are so excited to welcome back our students to on-campus learning! To start the school year off right, HST will be having a student orientation on Friday, August 12, 2022, from 9:00-12:00 and 1:00-5:00 PM. A meet-and-greet will take place for students during each orientation session.


Our first official day of class will be August 17th, 2022. As a reminder, the class will begin at 7:45 am and end at 3:10 pm, except Wednesday. Every Wednesday, we will have early dismissal, and school will end at 2:15 pm. Should a student arrive to class after 7:45 am, they will be considered tardy.


In the event that your student is absent, please be sure to provide a note within 3 days of returning to class to have the absence excused. Should you have any questions regarding the attendance guidelines, please visit the 2022-2023 student handbook.


Starting tomorrow, Thursday, July 28th, 2022, parents are invited to bring their students to the campus. Scholars: please wear your school uniform shirt for your student ID picture to be taken at that time. Student ID will be free of charge. Also, each family that creates their School Cafe account and applies for the National School Lunch Program will receive a free Clear Backpack, as well as 1 free school shirt, depending on size availability. 


The front office is open and ready to help from 9 am – 3 pm.


Lastly, as we work together to navigate this upcoming school year, we have a few policies set in place to protect our staff and our students. Each student will be expected to have a CLEAR BACKPACK.


We look forward to a successful school year and are excited about seeing our scholars!

The 2022-2023 School supply list is available. Please click HERE to view your school’s list.



Due to high demand, many uniform sizes quickly were sold out shortly after we launched our new online uniform store Thursday.

Stock shortage is not expected to be an ongoing issue. Fortunately, our uniform supplier has informed that they have added new inventory and are continuing to work to provide additional color and size choices as quickly as possible.

Shop now to get your uniforms purchases in time for the first day of school and take advantage of these offers:

Shop July 21-Aug. 4 to get short sleeve polos for only $13.50 (reg. $15) or long sleeve for only $16.50 (reg. $18).

Buy two or more items to qualify for free shipping directly to your home using promo code HPSPOLO at checkout.

Two Ways to Shop Your School’s Uniform Store

Click ‘Uniforms’ under the PARENTS tab of your child’s campus website.

Find Your School Website

On FrenchToast
Search for your campus name and city on the ‘Shop By School’ page.

Frequently Asked Questions

The size and color I want are still out of stock – what can I do?
Our partners at French Toast are working hard to get more colors and sizes in stock as soon as possible. To get an automatic update when your uniform preference is ready to purchase, just enter your email in the ‘Notify Me’ box under the product ‘Out of Stock’ message.

Can my child still wear uniforms that were purchased previously?
Of course! If your child’s uniform is still in good condition, they are welcome to continue wearing uniforms from previous years, even if the campus has updated to a new uniform color scheme.

The free shipping code isn’t working – what’s up?
The free shipping code – HPSPOLO – is for orders of two items are more, so just make sure you have enough items to qualify for free shipping in your cart. If you’re still experiencing issues, please contact Customer Service at

Which uniform color do I need for my child?
When ordering new uniforms and polos, the following are the approved color schemes for each grade level:

The uniform color options don’t look like the ones I see above
– is something wrong?
There might be a minor color variation between the preview image on the French Toast website and the images above, but not by much. If the uniform you’re selecting doesn’t look right, just make sure you have the correct dress code selected from the drop down near the top of your screen.

Why can’t I just order uniforms directly at my campus anymore?
Unfortunately, year-round direct sales of school uniforms can be a complicated and time-consuming process for an individual campus. We’d rather put our team’s talents to use by serving our students. By partnering with an industry-leading school uniform supply company like French Toast, Harmony is able to keep uniform costs down for families while freeing up school staff (and storage space!) to focus on the other needs of our schools.

No returns or exchanges.
Uniforms will no longer be available for purchase at campuses.

Teacher of the Year 2021-2022

Ms. Deirdre Johnson, Harmony School of Technology

My name is Deirdre Johnson, and I am blessed and honored to be selected as Teacher of the Year of Harmony School of Technology (HSOT). I am a mother of four wonderful children, Whitney, Bayley, Dillon, and Micah. Blue, the family’s dog, is a new addition to the family. I am from Dallas, Texas, and moved to Houston after graduating from the University of Houston in 1995 (with a Bachelor of Business Administration). I also have the following degrees, a Master of Education and a Master of Public Administration.

I currently serve on the Parent Association Board at The Kinkaid School and one of the advisors of HSOT’s Student Council. I volunteer with the Greater Houston Track Club and The Stafford Cobras Youth Football League yearly. I have worked with children since 2002. I taught Math, English, and Science at the JJAEP for nine years, served as a Juvenile Probation Officer for six years, and previously served in the role of a Discipline Support Staff at Harmony for four years. My new role this year as an eighth-grade English teacher has been very rewarding. I value teaching my students and learning from them. I enjoy caring about my students’ academic and social needs beyond the classroom. My rapport with my students and their families has contributed to my success at HSOT. I am forever grateful for all of my accomplishments thus far.

Dear Families,

As we prepare to take a short break from school for Spring Break, we want to express our gratitude to everyone who makes it possible for students to come to school every day, on time, and ready to learn.

We thank:

● Our students and families for making daily attendance a priority. This habit of attendance will help them do well in the classroom.

● Our wonderful teachers pour their energy into making each classroom an exciting place for exploration and knowledge.

● Our support staff and community volunteers who provide extra hands and attention for our children’s needs.

We appreciate each one of you so much. We look forward to seeing you after spring break. Our campus will close from March 14-18, 2022. We will reopen Monday, March 21st at 7:00 a.m.

We know it is tempting to extend your vacation by a few days on either side of spring break. Please make sure that your child is at school every day, right up until spring break starts. Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning.


Mr. Topcu

Queridas familias,

Mientras nos preparamos para tomar un breve descanso de la escuela durante las vacaciones

de primavera, queremos expresar nuestro agradecimiento a todos los que hacen posible

que el mayor número de estudiantes vengan a la escuela todos los días, a tiempo, listos para aprender. Agradecemos:

● Nuestros estudiantes y familias hacen de la asistencia diaria una prioridad ya que saben que el hábito de asistencia les ayudará a tener un buen desempeño en el salón de clases y eventualmente en el trabajo.

● Nuestros maravillosos maestros ponen su energía en hacer de cada salón de clases un lugar emocionante para la exploración y el conocimiento  para que los niños no quieran perderse el aprendizaje.

● Nuestro personal de apoyo y voluntarios de la comunidad brindan ayuda y la atención adicional que necesitan nuestros niños. Apreciamos mucho a cada uno de ustedes. Esperamos verlos después de las vacaciones de primavera. Recuerden que la escuela estará cerrada la semana del 14-18 de marzo del 2022, y reabre el lunes, 21 de marzo a las 7:00a.m.

Sabemos que es tentador extender sus vacaciones por unos días antes o después de la época festiva. Por lo tanto, asegúrese que su hijo venga a la escuela todos los días hasta que las vacaciones inicien. Nuestros maestros enseñarán y nuestros estudiantes aprenderán. Pero es difícil enseñar y aprender cuando muchos estudiantes están ausentes.


Mr. Topcu

Each school year, thousands of families submit their application to become a part of Harmony Public Schools.

Here’s how we select applicants for enrollment each year to make sure each applicant has an equal opportunity to become our next high-achieving Harmony scholar.


Each January, we ask current families to let us know if they’ll be coming back to Harmony next year. This is called “Re-Enrollment.”


Based on the number of students returning next year and the number of classes in each grade level, we determine how many open spots we will have for new students.


Meanwhile, new families are submitting their applications during our annual Open Enrollment season, which runs from November 1 through February 10 each year.


After February 10, if the number of new applicants is greater than the number of available spots we have, Harmony holds a “blind lottery” to make sure all applicants have a fair opportunity to be seated.


Families of students selected for enrollment are notified. Those not selected are put on a “waitlist” and contacted as soon as a spot opens up.

… and that’s it!

Here are some answers to our applicants’ most frequently asked questions.


Not always, but often.

Whether a lottery is needed is determined by the number of spots available at each grade level and the number of eligible applicants interested in them.


Most importantly, we need you to officially accept the spot (a link will be provided on the acceptance letter). Then, between now and next fall, you’ll need to officially register your child and provide a few documents verifying their identity and home address.

After that, we’ll see you on the first day of school!

(Note: If you were accepted by more than one campus, please register at your preferred campus and decline the invitation of any others. This will allow us to offer those spots to another prospective Harmony family.)


Absolutely – so don’t give up hope! Students initially placed on a waitlist are given the opportunity to enroll all the time at Harmony, often for one of the following reasons:

  • A student who was initially selected in the lottery didn’t completion registration by the deadline.
  • A student who was initially selected in the lottery moved away.
  • A student was selected by two schools in the lottery, but of course could only register at one.
  • We added an an extra class at the grade level for which you applied.
  • One of our nearby campuses had an opening,
    and reached out to see if you were interested in attending there.
