HSI-SA High School Transition Parent Night

HSI-SA High School Transition Parent Night

Dear 8th Grade Harmony Parents,

You are invited to our High School Transition Parent Night.  All 8th-grade parents are encouraged to attend at least one of the evenings.

We will host an in-person 8th-grade parent night on Thursday, March 3rd, at 5:30 pm in the 3rd-floor cafeteria.  The virtual parent night was held on Thursday, December 2nd, at 5:30 pm.

For both parent nights, counselors from our feeder school (Harmony Science Academy) will be talking about what to expect as your student gets ready to enter high school.  You will also have the pleasure of hearing from one of our very own HSI graduates about his high school experiences.  During the in-person night, parents/guardians will also be given a folder that contains some work samples from their College & Career Counseling class along with information about high school courses, etc.

Thank you and we hope to see you there!

Classroom Group Picture Day is on Thursday, February 24th.  Students will wear their uniforms.  You may order your pictures online at with the code EVTK2J2JD.

Staff will have their group picture at 7 am in the gym.

Each school year, thousands of families submit their application to become a part of Harmony Public Schools.

Here’s how we select applicants for enrollment each year to make sure each applicant has an equal opportunity to become our next high-achieving Harmony scholar.


Each January, we ask current families to let us know if they’ll be coming back to Harmony next year. This is called “Re-Enrollment.”


Based on the number of students returning next year and the number of classes in each grade level, we determine how many open spots we will have for new students.


Meanwhile, new families are submitting their applications during our annual Open Enrollment season, which runs from November 1 through February 10 each year.


After February 10, if the number of new applicants is greater than the number of available spots we have, Harmony holds a “blind lottery” to make sure all applicants have a fair opportunity to be seated.


Families of students selected for enrollment are notified. Those not selected are put on a “waitlist” and contacted as soon as a spot opens up.

… and that’s it!

Here are some answers to our applicants’ most frequently asked questions.


Not always, but often.

Whether a lottery is needed is determined by the number of spots available at each grade level and the number of eligible applicants interested in them.


Most importantly, we need you to officially accept the spot (a link will be provided on the acceptance letter). Then, between now and next fall, you’ll need to officially register your child and provide a few documents verifying their identity and home address.

After that, we’ll see you on the first day of school!

(Note: If you were accepted by more than one campus, please register at your preferred campus and decline the invitation of any others. This will allow us to offer those spots to another prospective Harmony family.)


Absolutely – so don’t give up hope! Students initially placed on a waitlist are given the opportunity to enroll all the time at Harmony, often for one of the following reasons:

  • A student who was initially selected in the lottery didn’t completion registration by the deadline.
  • A student who was initially selected in the lottery moved away.
  • A student was selected by two schools in the lottery, but of course could only register at one.
  • We added an an extra class at the grade level for which you applied.
  • One of our nearby campuses had an opening,
    and reached out to see if you were interested in attending there.
