Academics

Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships

Reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic may be the traditional “3 R’s of many school systems, but Harmony has developed and adopted its own version of the 3Rs to set higher goals for our students.

Rigorous

Prepares students for college

Relevant

Reinforces math and science skills

Relationships

Relationships, reinforced by teachers and parents

How we do it

The success of our students at Harmony is based on a program emphasizing academic excellence while motivating student achievement.

Harmony Curriculum is built using the “Backward Design” model and is aligned with Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards.

What does "STEM-FOCUSED" mean?

Harmony’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and science) curriculum is student-centered and inquiry-based and emphasizes mastery of 21st century skills that all students will need to be successful in college and career.

Our STEM program is a part of Harmony Public Schools Academic Department, which involves a team of curriculum specialists, instructional coaches, and lead teachers in Harmony Public Schools System.

It has three components:

Professional Development
Harmony believes that content-focused professional development is a critical need to ensure the quality of teaching science and mathematics. Our STEM training model has two major components; the mastery of content knowledge and delivery of the content with effective instructional practices.

HPS Project-Based Learning Program (PBL)
Project-Based Learning is an instructional approach that emphasizes collaboration and personalized learning.In PBL, student groups engage in meaningful inquiry that is of personal interest. These problems are real-life oriented, curriculum-based, and often interdisciplinary.

Learners decide what activities or processes to perform. They collect information from a variety of sources, and then analyze, synthesize, and derive understanding from it.Harmony developed a standards-aligned, cross-disciplinary, multi-sensory model called STEM Students on the Stage (STEM SOS) that integrates three core subject areas: a STEM subject, social studies, and English language arts. The cross-curricular connections and hands-on learning deepen students’ understanding of topics they choose while allowing teachers to more actively engage their students in new ways of learning.
STEM Culture
The department also provides strategies and resources for schools to build STEM school atmosphere connecting the students to higher education. We design a variety of opportunities for students to take STEM education “beyond the classroom” and see how today’s instruction connects to career and lifelong learning.
