Open Quote The Turkish teachers are not certified to teach in Texas (according to the SBEC website). Their English is really bad, poor spelling, terrible accent, even their handwriting is bad. They don't understand the American culture. The money is wasted in things that don't benefit the students, like their recent 10th Year Anniversary Gala dinner. But the Robotics team had to sell spaghetti and Ray Ban sunglasses to be able to attend a competition in San Antonio. Students' bathrooms have no soap most of the time. Cafeteria food is terrible, but the concession for the food preparation is owned by the wife of Mayor John Cook. They make people believe that their main focus is mathematics and science, when most of their math and science teachers are Turkish, and not certified. The other "main focus" is computers, but recently they got rid of the computer lab in the Elementary School building to leave room for an addition to their daycare, "Bluebonnet Learning Center", which is another big source of income.

Open Quote I find that Harmony Science Academy is not nearly as competent as they say they are. The school's statisctics and brochures are quite misleading. The school has a poor selection of classes and extracurricular activities (which is to say that if the student is not interested in robotics, the school is useless for him/her). The school also lacks the proper science lab equiptment. The money is misused and the administration is incompetent. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
