    "This is my first year with Harmony. My child entered the first grade and his teachers were outstanding. My child had attended a Catholic school in the past and was completely behind when he entered Harmony. The teachers were supportive, caring and made sure that my child would be caught up by the end of the year. I had more involvement with the first grade teacher, who kept me informed of everything, than I ever did it at any school. The teachers also made sure that my child was included during the play. I have to say that I am extremely impressed and these this teacher set the bar very high! Yes, there could be improvements but I believe Mr. Paulson will bring Harmony where it needs to be. He really cares about the kids that attend this school. Parent involvement is limited but there are ways to be involved. It is adjustment especially when you have little ones that do not attend school they are not allowed at any of the events and this is just difficult for some. The school community is pretty tight, we all know and love the principal and fought for him to continue his job as principal. I am optimistic that things will change within the Middletown school district."

    "Unsure how much state funding it receives but the PTO is extremely active and coordinates many fundraisers, (good thing) State test results could improve, but the faculty encourages the students to learn. Due to budget constraints the librarian and technology teachers were dismissed: the parents volunteered school library, which is small. The fact that MTPL closed the doors on several of their local branches doesn't help either. The environment is somewhat cliquey, but parents are not ignored. The principal seems interested in his students' success and gained favor with the parents, as recently witnessed with protests against the BOE's initial decision to no re-hire the prinicpal. Recently emphasis has been given to green efforts and a garden will be maintained by the students. The students are exposed to some technology. The school has a multi-purpose room, dubbed the Hawk's Nest, after the school's mascot, which serves as gymnasium, cafeteria and auditorium. The school has a very safe and family-oriented atmosphere. Overall, the school is a welcoming place for both student and parent."

    "Harmony is a great school with loving teachers and staff. I know my son is well cared for there. he is challenged daily with work appropriate for his grade level. He is given great homework that reinforces his school work. He is encouraged to work hard- and he does!"

    "We have been in Harmony school for five years. Acaademics are very good and my children have done well and have always seemed happy there. Music program is good. Same parents involved all the time. The school is big and staff seems to keep parents at a distance. Kids eat lunch in their classrooms. Harmony lacks that warm and fuzzy feeling. Overall, Middletown township Board of Education has too many problems that I don't think will ever be resolved."

    "We are just starting Harmony and the biggest problem I see is they still have half a day kindergarten. This is crazy. Considering all they have to do to be ready for 1st grade, a mere 2.5 hours a day doesn't give them much time at all. The class enviornment has to be rushed many times they hardly have enough time to eat their snacks because of time. The actual cirriculum seems good including spanish and regular trips to the library. The kindergarten should be extended to a full day."
