Dual enrollment, allows eligible high school juniors and seniors to obtain college credit during their high school career. Students who are able to meet the standards of the rigorous course will be able to take their credits to a university and apply them to the college graduation plan. Each university is different and will accept most, if not all, credits earned during dual enrollment. In addition, all high school students interested in these programs must be admitted into the courses with the same requirements of a student being admitted into a university.
Our senior students have been working hard to accomplish all their goals and finish on top of their academic success. As of right now our students have received some form of scholarships or grants in an estimate amount of $250,000+ and we are still counting the amount as it comes in. We are proud of our students and look forward for their future.
Harmony Public Schools "College Acceptance Day Pep Rally 2012"
This is a video of the first annual College Acceptance Day PEP Rally held on May 4th, 2012 by Harmony Public Schools (HPS) at the George R. Brown Convention in Houston, Texas. More than 3,000 middle school and high school students from 13 Houston-area HPS campuses attended this exciting event to celebrate our Graduating Seniors as they announced publically for the first time what College they would be attending in the Fall of 2012. Many of the Graduates were either the first-in-family or a first-generation family member to be accepted to a 4-yr College. More than 50% of these graduates went on to major in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) fields in College. This event was also a part of our annual Field Trip day to the I-SWEEEP International Science Fair. Created and Hosted each year by HPS, I-SWEEEP is the largest High School Science Fair in the United States, bringing together over 600 High School students across 44 States and more than 70 countries.

Four Harmony Campuses Made into the Challenge Index
Washington Post has announced its Most Challenging High Schools list of 2012. Four Harmony high schools made the Challenge Index and three of them in the top 100 out of 1900 schools in the list.
The Challenge Index of Washington Post ranks high schools since 1998 based on the student achievement on IB, AP, and college level tests (SAT, ACT, etc.) and graduation rates. The index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in 2011 divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. Lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E). A (P) next to the school's name denotes a private school.
