School Notes

  • At Harmony School, we feel each child’s unique qualities should be nurtured. We view each child as an individual with needs and abilities that differ from other children. Every child has his or her own learning style, special talents and unique gifts. We individualize instruction to address each child’s special qualities.

School Reviews

Overall an outstanding school - curriculum is unique blend of philosophies, kindergarten is well-above public school programs and the elementary school is one-of-a-kind with weekly field trips, hands-on learning experiences and fantastic experiential learning opportunities. Very small class provides one-on-one time with superb instructors.
