    "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."

    "The best thing about HSE is the students. There are almost no behavior issues. Of the students who have been in attendance since it opened (majority Muslim or Indian), most were already high achieving students with above average IQs.This explains the excellent test scores. The majority of students have likely been hand selected in the past despite claiming a lottery. In the past year, a real lottery has been used and the new students more accurately reflect the Houston culture. They claim an excelerated curriculum but dropped most excelerated classes last year in lieu of higher STAAR Test scores despite much objection from parents. Only one GT class per grade is now ahead in curriculum. The great teachers with experience are enouraged to quit after a few years by being harassed by administration so they don't have to pay them the higher salary. For 2012-2013 there are appr. 20 new teachers. Many of the teachers lost were great and the new ones are first year teachers with NO experience. They are so cheap that the inside hasn't been painted in three years. Paint is peeling. Expect this school to be an average school within the next couple years."

    "My Daughter has been going to a Harmony School since Kindergarten. She is now in the 4th grade and reads at a 6th grade level. She is an avid reader and reads on average about 30 books a year, which she has to take tests on weekly. Her math skills are currently at about the 5th grade level. I am particularly impressed with her ability to solve multi-level mathematic word problems. She scores 100% on both the Math and reading sections of the TAKS. All of my life growing up in America I have been told that these types of academic achievements are not possible for African American girls, given their inferior cognitive capacity as a result of genetic pre-dispositions. I can confidently say that 80% of my daughter accomplishments can be attributed to the outstanding teachers and administrators at her school and the culture of high expectations they have created. I have never witnessed the type of constructive competitiveness that has grown organically within the student body at such a young age. The dedication of the teachers and staff is amazing, as they come in on the weekends or stay afterschool to help studnets who are having problems."
