We moved to oldham county for the good schools but this was the worst experience ever. My son came with a detailed IEP with speech and motor skill delay and had been in school full time for 2 1/2 years prior. The kindergarten teacher they chose was strict and non loving. He did not respond well to this and reacted. She labeled him violent and severely behaviorally challenged. She had him doing completely different work in the class than the other students. They were doing math while he colored. We never had behavior problems before. The principal refused to take advice from his previous teacher on ways to work with him and could have cared less. I changed him to part time kindergarten and they shuffled him for 3 hours daily to the resource room and recess. His only goal was to be good and get good behavior stickers. He regressed. He wrote his name better before we went to harmony. To top it all off they refused to let him go on field trips because "he wasn't a student after 11am". Ridiculous! I could not imagine sending my other 2 children to this school so we moved. Terrible kindergarten teacher terrible principal terrible experience.

DISAPPOINTED!!! The administration specifically the principal and counselor seem to be more concerned with the ratings/statistics of the school than looking out for the best interests of the students. Parents beware if you have a child with special needs this school may not be the best fit.
My child has attended Harmony Elementary since it's inception. It is a top notch school with a great academic and administrative team. The principal is a caring listening and proactive administrator who puts the kids first. You could not ask for a better learning environment or more partcipating parent community to be involved in.
Harmony has a great school spirit. The kids seem to enjoy the school. The school also has monthly assemblies set on themes such as building character perseverance bullying etc. The teachers are caring and supportive.
