Dear parents and students,
Harmony School of Innovation Sugar Land is providing TSI Testing one more time for this Academic year. In order for students to take a TSI test, the registration form must be completed and submitted by the Thursday, March 22 at 4:00 pm prior to the selected testing date. Harmony email account is required to complete the form. Students must preregister.
Walk-ins will not be allowed to test.
We hosted a School Safety Information Night for our parents and staff members with the participation of Sergeant Aldridge of the local SWAT team, and SLPD Crime Prevention Officer Johnston! We reviewed some of our current security measures and procedures already established, as well as discussed plans to further enhance security on campus.
Summer Dual Credit registration has started.
Dual Credit courses are courses offered for dual credit from agreements between high schools, universities and community colleges whereby a high school student enrolls in a college course and simultaneously earns college credit and high school credit for the course.
To ensure that students are taking meaningful dual credit courses, they need to be aware of the requirements and degree/certification requirements in their field of interest as well as their two-year college and their future four-year college. By tracking students’ college coursework along with their high school graduation plan, students should be aware of their progress toward the college goals. We have been seeing and helping students during our course selection one-on-one meetings and Summer Dual Credit courses for the last three weeks.
We have an agreement with both HCC and Lone Star. A student can take the Dual Credit from both colleges as long as they apply online and create an account.
HCC is free for all students and more convenient for in-person classes. You need to complete and turn in HCC Dual Credit Forms, Meningitis Shot Record and Test scores (SAT, ACT, or TSI).
Lone Star charges only service fee based on the number of credits and is more convenient for Online classes. You need to turn in LSCC Exceptional Admission Form, LSCC Parental Consent Form and Test Scores (SAT, ACT, or TSI).
I attached both of the colleges’ registration forms. Please fill out the forms and turn them into your assigned counselor or Mrs. Dok by this coming Friday, March 9 at 4:00 pm. All courses will be approved based on the College Core Curriculum.
Here are the Summer Dual Credit eligibility criteria for your reference.
Please Join Us!
We are proud to announce and invite you and your family to join us for the annual language and culture competition final.

The safety and security of our students is always the absolute highest priority at Harmony School of Innovation – Sugar Land. We take this responsibility with extreme seriousness and are constantly reevaluating existing procedures, equipment, and ideas to further enhance security on our campus. As recent events have heightened school security concerns across the country, we would like to invite our parents, students, staff, and community members to attend a School Safety Night with the participation of Sugar Land Police Department’s SWAT representatives.
Please join us in the 3rd Floor Multi-Purpose room on Tuesday, March 6th at 6:00pm. During this event, we will review current procedures, discuss plans for improvements, answer questions, and encourage feedback from attendees.
At Harmony School of Innovation-Sugar Land, student success is our priority. The selection of classes for the upcoming school year is a large component of student success for high school and beyond. We know that there are many options for students with regards to course selection. Please set up an appointment with the assigned counselor and take time during the course selection and registration timeframe to select classes carefully.
We would like parents and students to know that during the course selection process, all students will receive a credit check and course selection forms during the course selection meetings. Through the Individual Student Planning (ISP) Meetings, students will see a course selection presentation prepared by the counselors. They will have a chance to ask questions at that time. From this point, students are asked to complete their course selection process during meetings. Throughout February, counselors will meet with every student to continue the guidance process and ensure that students have selected appropriate courses for graduation and for their post-secondary plans.
- In order to schedule individual course selection meetings, please update your contact information with our front office. Otherwise, we will not be able to schedule the meetings.
- All 8th-grade students/parents are REQUIRED to schedule a course selection meeting with his/her counselor for the next year. For more information, please contact our head counselor, Mr. Alper Ciftci, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Course Selection Forms: Must be signed and returned to your counselor during your course selection meetings will be held on February 8th-March 9th.
