H.S.A. Waco ranks 275 out of 1900!

Waco Harmony Science Academy has been ranked as the 275th most challenging high school nationally according to the Washington Post. Washington Post education columnist Jay Mathews has been ranking the most challenging schools in the nation for 17 years. This year HSA Waco was ranked 275th out of over 1,900 schools on the list. Additionally, HSA Waco ranked 57th amongst schools in the state of Texas. We are proud to be the highest ranking high school in the Waco area.
We feel honored to receive such recognition for achieving such a high ranking in just our 8th year of operation. This is HSA Waco’s 7th year as a designated T-STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) academy. We would like to acknowledge and thank our wonderful students, parents and staff for this great accomplishment. Without our staff's dedication, it could never have happened.

Grade Promotion in 6th-8th Grade

As stated on pages 35-36 of the 2014-2015 Student/Parent Handbook, in order for students in grades 6-8 to be promoted to the next grade level, the following criteria must be met:

• Maintain a 70% average
• Maintain a 70% average in ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies
• Satisfy the minimum requirements of the STAAR tests
• Attend a sufficient number of classes

If one or more of these criteria are not met, students’ report cards will read “[Student] not promoted to next grade level due to [one or more of the reasons above].” Students will then take the corresponding Grade Placement Test(s) (testing dates TBA). Students who score a 70% or higher on the Grade Placement Test(s) will be promoted to the next grade level, and their report cards will be revised and resent to reflect the change.

The Grade Placement Committee, consisting of an administrator, teachers, and the parent, will meet if a student scores below a 70% on their Grade Placement Test(s). All committee members must agree that students should be placed in the next grade level. If the committee members do not agree, students will be retained in their current grade level.

Please contact H. Smith (hsmith@harmonytx.org) with any questions.
