Harmony Science Academy is proud to announce that it has received a prestigious College Success Award from GreatSchools.org.
Launched in 2018, the College Success Award honors schools that excel in ensuring students prepare for college, enroll in college, and succeed once they get there. This year, Harmony Science Academy is among 2,158 award-winning schools from 29 states who have demonstrated a successful track record of graduating students who later enroll in two- or four-year college, are ready for college-level coursework, and persist on to their second year, according to available data from each state.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to threaten the physical and financial health of the nation, Harmony Science Academy is ensuring students graduate with the skills and resources to succeed as postsecondary scholars and productive citizens. College- and career-ready graduates are critical to fueling the U.S. economy, as 70 percent of jobs will require a postsecondary degree by 2027.
“In Harmony, we have been advocating for college access and success since our first graduating class in 2011,” said Principal Mr. Mucahit Turel. I have served to the mission of making sure our graduates go and finish college as a college counselor and alumni relations coordinator in the past. Now, as a school principal, I am thrilled and humbled to receive the 2020 College Success Award from GreatSchool.org for HSA El Paso. Helping our graduates access and complete college is aligned with our campus’s vision of educating our students to be lifelong learners.”
Despite the unprecedented disruptions to the educational landscape this year, Harmony Science Academy has adopted and upheld many best practices to support their students’ college preparation and success, including providing access to rigorous academic offerings both within school and through extracurricular programs.
“We applaud Harmony Science Academy for prioritizing high-quality public education, putting students on the path to bright futures,” said Jon Deane, CEO of GreatSchools.org. “Over the past year, students, parents, teachers, and communities have relied on one another like never before. We congratulate and thank all of these individuals at Harmony Science Academy for their unwavering pursuit of college success for all students.”

Dear Harmony Parents and Guardians,

At Harmony Public Schools, providing our students and staff a safe and academically-focused learning environment is our highest priority.

As you are likely aware, COVID-19 continues to remain a strong and steady presence in our El Paso community. Earlier today, the City of El Paso announced that the number of active cases in our city has reached an all-time high following a steady upward trend throughout last week.  Therefore, due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in El Paso, and based upon recommendations from the City of El Paso Department of Public Health, we have requested a waiver from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) allowing an extension of remote-only learning until Wednesday, October 28th, with a phased in return to campus.  Therefore, campuses will not fully re-open on Tuesday, October 13th as previously stated.

The phase-in plan to allow students to safely return to campus is listed below.  Please note: campuses will inform parents regarding which grade levels will be allowed to return in each phase.

October 28– 25% of students that selected In-Person Learning will return to campus

November 2– 50% of students that selected In-Person Learning will return to campus

November 4– 75% of students that selected In-Person Learning will return to campus

November 6– 100% of students that selected In-Person Learning will return to campus

 

While our campuses won’t be fully re-opened until this date, we still have limited availability at each of our four campus learning centers.  As a reminder, the learning centers, are a supervised “study hall” like setting where students complete their daily classwork remotely from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  If interested, please contact your campus for learning center availability.

Thank you for your continued support during these unprecedented times, and for helping keep our students safe and focused on learning. We will continue to keep you updated as new developments take place.

 

Sincerely,

Harmony Public Schools – El Paso

Estimados padres y tutores de Harmony:

En las Escuelas Públicas de Harmony, nuestra máxima prioridad es proporcionar a nuestros estudiantes y personal un entorno de aprendizaje seguro y centrado en lo académico.

Como probablemente sepa, COVID-19 continúa siendo una presencia fuerte y constante en nuestra comunidad de El Paso. Hoy temprano, la Ciudad de El Paso anunció que el número de casos activos en nuestra ciudad ha alcanzado un máximo histórico siguiendo una tendencia ascendente constante durante la semana pasada. Por lo tanto, debido al reciente aumento de casos de COVID-19 en El Paso, y según las recomendaciones del Departamento de Salud Pública de la Ciudad de El Paso, hemos solicitado una exención de la Agencia de Educación de Texas (TEA) que permite una extensión de solo aprendizaje hasta el miércoles 28 de octubre, con un regreso gradual al campus. Por lo tanto, los campus no volverán a abrir completamente el martes 13 de octubre como se indicó anteriormente.

El plan de incorporación para permitir que los estudiantes regresen con seguridad al campus se enumera a continuación. Tenga en cuenta: los campus informarán a los padres sobre qué niveles de grado se les permitirá regresar en cada fase.

28 de octubre: el 25% de los estudiantes que seleccionaron el aprendizaje en persona regresarán al campus

2 de noviembre El 50% de los estudiantes que seleccionaron el aprendizaje en persona regresarán al campus

4 de noviembre, el 75% de los estudiantes que seleccionaron el aprendizaje en persona regresarán al campus

6 de noviembre El 100% de los estudiantes que seleccionaron el aprendizaje en persona regresarán al campus

Si bien nuestros campus no se reabrirán por completo hasta esta fecha, todavía tenemos disponibilidad limitada en cada uno de nuestros cuatro centros de aprendizaje del campus. Como recordatorio, los centros de aprendizaje son un entorno supervisado como una “sala de estudio” donde los estudiantes completan su trabajo diario de clase de forma remota de 8 a.m. a 3 p.m. Si está interesado, comuníquese con su campus para conocer la disponibilidad del centro de aprendizaje.

Gracias por su continuo apoyo durante estos tiempos sin precedentes y por ayudar a mantener a nuestros estudiantes seguros y enfocados en el aprendizaje. Continuaremos manteniéndolo actualizado a medida que se produzcan nuevos desarrollos.

 

Sinceramente,

Escuelas Públicas Harmony – El Paso

What have you been doing to pass the time during quarantine? 

I’ve been watching movies, taking pictures, editing, spending more time with my dog and my family, etc.

What are you doing to make the best out of your senior year?

I’ve been trying to keep a positive attitude regardless of the global crisis we are in and also trying to make every moment as memorable as possible.

How are you staying in touch with your classmates? 

I’ve been texting and calling some of my classmates to make sure they are doing okay or if they need anything.

How has virtual learning changed the way you study?

Virtual learning has changed the way I study because I have to adjust to a completely different system from the one I was used to. I have to be more responsible and avoid distractions when I need to stay focused on any school related assignment.

How have you prepared for the challenges you are facing this school year? 

From what I experienced last semester, I knew this new school year would be hard so I made sure I arranged a schedule and prepared more materials for me to work with to keep everything more organized.

Describe your workplace at home. 

My workplace at home is mainly composed of the desk I use all the time, my computer, my agenda, pencils and pens, index cards, and two marker dry erase boards.

What song has kept you motivated throughout quarantine? Why? 

Stuck with u – Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber, because the song reminds me that maybe I can’t go out like I normally would but I can definitely spend much more time with my family.

What are your hopes for after you graduate from high school? 

My hopes for after I graduate from high school are to move out of El Paso and attend college.

What advice would you give to incoming freshmen? 

First of all, don’t be too scared. High School will be a stressful era but as long as you do everything you are being asked to do, you’ll be fine. Always strive to go above the expectations for better opportunities. I can’t guarantee that high school will be like High School Musical, but it will for sure be a necessary journey full of lessons that you’ll need in life.

What are your top three university choices? 

  1. University of Southern California 2. University of California at Los Angeles 3. La Salle College (Vancouver, Canada)
