|HSA-Grand Prairie ranked high!|
CHILDREN AT RISK (non-profit research and advocacy organization) has released the 10th annual School Rankings across North Texas.
Children At Risk ranked all campuses in Texas across three indices: Student Achievement, Campus Performance, and Growth. Within each index, a weighted index score was calculated for each campus. Using these three index scores, a weighted average was computed to create an overall composite index. A state or local rank was determined as the order in which campuses are listed when the weighted composite indices are sorted from highest to lowest, relative to other schools servicing the same grade levels.
According to this report Harmony Science Academy-Grand Prairie is ranked high at all 3 categories.
High School Performance – Grade A+
We scored higher than 91.76 % of all public and charter schools that are ranked in this report.
Middle School Performance - Grade A
We scored higher than 83.6 % of all public and charter schools that are ranked in this report.
Elementary School Performance – Grade B+
We scored higher than 68.38 % of all public and charter schools that are ranked in this report.

|Information about Summer School|
Harmony campuses in the DFW area, including Harmony Science Academy of Grand Prairie, will not offer summer school in 2015. Instead, students in grades 1 through 8 who failed one or more of their core content classes and/or did not meet the standard on all of their STAAR tests will be required to take a Harmony Grade Promotion Test (HGPT) to determine their grade level for the 2015-2016 school year.
HSAGP will provide test review packets the last week of school to help students prepare at home. Students who do not successfully pass the test will be referred to a Grade Placement Committee (GPC) to make final placement decisions.
The Grade Promotion Tests will be held the third week of June; the GPCs will meet the last week of June as needed.

Assistant Principal- Academics & Assessment
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: To whom does this apply?
A: This applies to students who fail at least one core content class as well as to students who do not meet standard on a STAAR test. It also applies to students with excessive absences.
Q: Who serves on the Grade Placement Committee?
A: A parent, an administrator, and the classroom teacher.
Q: What happens if the GPC cannot agree on a decision?
A: All members must agree on promotion for the student to move on to the next grade level. If parties cannot agree, the child is retained.
Q: My child needs extra help. Can I send them to another school or facility?
A: Yes. You may enroll him / her in another summer school program to prepare for the HGPT.
Q: I already made plans for the last two weeks of June. Can I have my child take the test early?
A: Yes. You may arrange to take the Grade Promotion Test early if you wish. We recommend that the student takes two weeks to review for the test, however.
Q: Who can I contact if I have additional questions / concerns?
A: Feel free to contact the AP of Academics for the grade level in question.
