    Teachers are dedicated but the school needs a cleanup & makeover. Students are very much willing to learn!

    This school is one of the best DPS schools I have seen so far..I moved here from California and run my own business in the knowing I can afford to pay for my children's education I would rather them stay "rooted" and "never take anything for granted" with this said the principle is VERY dedicated to the school...mind you that I research the other schools around the area.. "charter school" and NOT ONE principle OR teachers stood out as well as Harms children's kindergarten teacher is a class A I have had all 4 of my children in her sons class has a grant that EVERY year the principle apples for and IS granted because THE SCHOOL is doing its job in PROPER children started to learn how to read in kinder and mind you that MOST schools and children do not learn OR know how to read until the middle of their 1st grade year..mind you not a lot of parents of active like My HusandNAND if your looking for a awesome school were the teachers as well as the principle will dedicate themselves to give your children a PROPER education with out the hassle of politics then look no further then HARMS...too bad it only goes up to the 5th grade...
