    "I was forced to move and go to Harmony School of Excellence. It's terrible. They put way to much homework on you, have really bad lunches, and most teachers don't really care about the students. Oh, & no electives! Only options: Spanish, or Turkish & you HAVE TO take one. I now have sleep deprivation to b/c of the homework. I've skipped breakfast a few times, and I don't even eat school lunch (the school's food is B-A-D) so I'm starving when I get home. I advise you to not go here..but if you do, pack your own lunch! Also, the kids get really show-off-y just because they got an A/B on a test. There's also this Chromebook you have to buy but a lot of kids have them unblocked so they just play games when the teacher tells you to take notes or is talking. B/C the teacher's have no personality, there no fun, they somehow manage to make everything BORING! And some of them are unfair about things ("Oh, you were sick? Well that's your problem, so wheres the homework? No? DPS! One more and you get Saturday detention!") and I don't understand why you can't carry your backpack in the classroom. Best if you don't send your kid here, trust me...personal experience!"

    "I used to go to Harmony School of Advancement but then got moved to Magnolia West High because we moved houses. Worst thing to ever happen to me. The kids are 100% nicer and friendlier and I have time to complete all my homework, which is a lot, because of block class which is an hour 45 instead of the typical 45 minute period. That means I have 4 classes a day alternating every other day. I'm not as physically tired and the teachers have personality. The only thing is, that it requires a bit of money here and there and they accumulate. But otherwise, I am ahead of other kids my age and I have more academic opportunities. I get to be more culturally diverse and learn things that are otherwise unclear in a public school. As far as school food goes, please bring your own lunch and trust me, once you wear the uniform for about a week or two, fashion is going to be a pleasure for you. I've met my best friends here and by personal experience, I know that we are friendly and helpful to new kids. We are the easiest group of kids to warm up to. Harmony is great."

    "HORRIBLE HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!. We just got forced to moved our child back to her orininal school were we had never leaved, because they just KICK US OUT, with no mercy!, my child was debastated after to many promisses that the teachers did to us, my child was not the best student ever, and that is one of the reasons that we choose to pick this school, but oh surprice!, they are totally discriminated! about any child that is not up to their level, so if tou do not think your kid is good enough for them do not even bother!!.... you never get to meet the big people like the Princilal etc, and the is so hard to understand the big guy in charge who does not even bother to offer you an apology after an non since explanation....poor quality!, aweful lunch very unexperince teachers, since they quit so often, this makes a big sign!!! So if you are looking for great quality education do not even bother to take your child there!!!....until tday I can believe I had my child go to this experience."

    "The kids at HSE are well-educated and tower above the test scores of public schools. However, the kids act as if they they can pick on you just because their grade in math is higher than yours. plus, unlike Cy- Fair, this school does not include electives such as band, orchestra, choir, etc. If you sre a parent and are thinking about this school, i highly consider otherwise."

    "My daughter just started kindergarten this year at HSE and I am impressed with how much she has grown academically and socially in such a short time. Also, I am yet to see any peeling paint as mentioned in the previous post. HSE listens to parents as well, a new sports complex is being built as we speak and I see this school only getting better."
