Harmon School of Innovation- El Paso will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on February 1, 2018. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. It is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessment because it provides a common measure of student achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public. If your child is selected and you do NOT want them to test, please submit your request in writing to the front office.
Attention all 9-11 grade students:
HSI-El Paso is arranging a University of Arizona at Tucson trip for 9th, 10th and 11th graders. The trip will give students an early look at college life and the admissions process. The trip will also give our students the opportunity to bond as they are making their way through high school. It is one of the many opportunities that HSI offers in order to enrich educational value. Please see the permission slip for further details.
I attached the permission slip and picture to use for the website announcement.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Build a career at Harmony Public Schools
We are now accepting applications from certified ESL and Bilingual Teachers.
Dear Parents, Teachers and Staff,
In accordance with the 40 CFR Part 763 (enacted by Congress in 1986) of the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). Section 763.93 pertaining to the Asbestos in School Identification and Notification Rule, Harmony School of Innovation- El Paso hereby notifies all parties of the Asbestos Management Plan availability.
The Asbestos Management Plan is available for review at the administrative office during regular campus operating hours.
We would like to inform you that there are currently no asbestos-containing building materials at our campus.
For additional information about AHERA or any specific questions regarding the Asbestos Management Plan, you may contact the campus operations manager, Mrs. Vera Osborne at email@example.com.
Harmony School of Innovation-El Paso, Tx is seeking dedicated Bilingual and ESL teachers. Bachelor’s degree in a directly related field and Texas teacher certification are required. If interested, please email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Harmony staff, teachers, and administrators have spent countless of hours preparing our students for college and each year approximately 85% of our graduating class enrolled in a post-secondary institution.
But, despite these impressive enrollment numbers, far too many of our low income and first-time college students drop out as they hit financial and circumstantial barriers such as the cost of attending college, that has increased by 36% in the last 10 years. Harmony Public Schools has 5,033 graduates to date and is projected to have 11,686 graduates by 2020, current funding sources are unable to meet even the current demands of these programs. Clearly, additional financial support is required.
We are asking our Harmony community to consider going beyond educational efforts, providing even greater assistance to our graduates through generous Harmony Giving Day contributions to the Harmony College Fund. All your donations will go towards helping our Harmony graduates to complete their higher education dreams and achieve their career aspirations by providing additional scholarships and direct college and career support services.
Let’s come together to reach our target of raising $50,000 on our first ever giving day.
Thank you for your generosity.
