College Readiness and Leadership Program(CRLP) Applications Now Open!
We would like to introduce a newly developed and fundamental program called the Harmony Public Schools’ College Readiness and Leadership Program (CRLP). Students at Harmony Schools have been participating in various local, statewide, and international competitions for over a decade. They have become some of the largest cumulative recipients of awards in the area of High School STEM comprehension. We enhance our students’ level one more step and prepare them to top universities in the country.

We Need Volunteers at UT Football Game Fundraisers, August 31st.
Harmony Public Schools Volunteer Program
A volunteer is a person rendering services for or on behalf of the school on school premises or at a school-sponsored or school-related activity on or off school property. Anyone who wants to participate as a volunteer must register using the HPS Volunteer application at http://harmonytx.voly.org . and become a fan of HSE Austin!
An approved HPS volunteer may serve in many ways depending on their interests. Stuffing envelopes, laminating, cutting box tops, relieving receptionists for lunch, working in festivals, chaperoning field trips, acting as a mentor, PTO member or literacy partner are just a few of the endless opportunities to volunteer in HSE!
HOME VISIT SATURDAY DRIVES
The Harmony Public Schools Home Visit Program utilizes a schedule and structure that has been developed and proven to break down barriers that often exist between schools and the community, and to provide opportunities for the sharing of goals and expectations. If you would like to schedule a home visit with us, please fill out the information below and put three checkmarks for your available date and time. And have your child to return to the teacher or front office, we will contact you for the exact date and time.

HSE Austin Cafeteria
The HSE-Austin PTO invites you to partner with us to work alongside our teachers and administration to enrich our students’ experience.
We all know children learn more and have better lives when parents, school staff, students and the community work together. The PTO strives to bring these groups together to share thoughts and ideas about programs and activities that benefit children and families.
Some of the programs that the HSE-Austin PTO has sponsored are donations of the classroom and school supplies, school dances, graduations, and teacher appreciation events.
RSVPs are enabled for this event.
Welcome back GATE!
Welcome back GATE students and families!
My name is Victoria Rossi and I am the gifted and talented coordinator and teacher at HSE. We learned a lot last year! We learned about coding robotic spheres and digital design at the Apple store. We went downtown to Silicon Labs to learn about what engineers do in the real world. We participated in the science fair. I'm excited for this new year to come! If you have a student who you think would qualify for the Gifted and Talented program, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will follow up with details about how to join our program!
English as a Second Language (ESL) Campus Coordinator Contact
My name is Ms. Scott & I am the ESL Campus Coordinator. I am looking forward to my 9th year working with ESL at Harmony Public Schools. Students, parents, & staff can come to me with any questions or concerns regarding ESL Program Logistics & English Language Development.
Many teachers at HSE have an ESL Certification to service students within the classroom. Along with coordinating Texas Education Agency's required documentation for HSE's 300+ ESL population, I will be teaching select middle school students daily. Ms. Garcia will be providing inclusion support for high schoolers.
Please email me at email@example.com, call 512.693.0000 ext. 120, or come by Room 120 with any ESL needs!
Skyward- Parent Access
We ask that parents/guardians log onto this system daily to check students' grades. If you find that your student has a missing assignment or a low grade, please contact your child's teacher to create a plan of action.
Printed progress reports will also be distributed to Middle School students each Friday. Please ask your child for this report at the end of each week.
