Application Lottery Status
This means that your child is offered a seat from the campus.
Starting on Monday, February 25th, you will have 2 business days to accept the placement at a campus.
If you accept placement at our campus, you will forfeit placement at all other campuses. You will have 10
business days to complete the registration process which includes: filling out the registration forms and submitting all required
documentation such as proof of residence, transcripts, discipline records, immunizations, and student identification.
If you decline placement, you will be removed from that Harmony campus lottery list only.
This means that your child is placed on the wait list for the campus. As students accept/decline spots on the offered
list, your child will move up. If your child moves up to the offered list, the system will send you a message through Smart Choice.

The 2017–18 School Report Cards (SRC) are now available on the Texas Education Agency’s website at http://tea.texas.gov/perfreport/src/index.html. The purpose of the SRC is to inform parents and guardians about a campus’s individual characteristics and its academic performance.
For those who would like greater detail about the information in the SRC, the glossary that accompanies the 2017–18 Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) is a useful resource. It contains definitions and methodologies for all the information included in the SRC. The data in the SRC is a subset of that published in the TAPR. The TAPR Glossary is available on the TEA website
Please join us for this informational event for your future high school student. We will be discussing a variety of important topics, including
Transition to High School
High School Graduation Plans
Endorsement and Career Pathways
The Harmony Difference!
At HSI we prepare our students for the start of their high school years by introducing them and informing them about our current Biomedical, Engineering, Computer Science, and Law Enforcement. We want to thank our counselors and teachers, Ms. Mosri, Ms. Guajardo, Mr. K, Ms. Osorio, Mr. Lehmann, Mr. Aktas and Mr. Torres for executing this event for our students.
En HSI preparamos a nuestros estudiantes para el inicio de sus años de escuela secundaria presentándolos e informándoles sobre nuestros conocimientos actuales de biomedicina, ingeniería, ciencias de la computación y cumplimiento de la ley. Queremos agradecer a nuestros consejeros y maestros, la Sra. Mosri, la Sra. Guajardo, el Sr. K, la Sra. Osorio, el Sr. Lehmann, el Sr. Aktas y el Sr. Torres por la ejecución de este evento para nuestros estudiantes.
We are getting closer to the STAAR tests and it’s time to do a final check our Scholars’ STAAR state test readiness. Students and teachers alike have been working rigorously since the beginning of the school year to master the skills needed to be successful on the STAAR tests.
Satisfactory performance on STAAR tests is a prerequisite to grade promotion in grades 3-8 and graduation requirement in grades 9-12.
The practice STAAR/EOC tests that will be administered in February are on the table below.
Several things you can do to help ensure a successful testing experience is that your student arrives on time, fully rested and prepared to test. It is also important to make sure your child eats a good dinner the night before, if not a good breakfast the morning of testing. Similarly, encouraging your student to do his or her personal best can greatly improve self-confidence levels leading to better performance.
Thank you for all you do to help your student be as successful as possible, and for all of your contributions to Harmony School of Innovation.
I will be more than happy to assist if you have any questions.
