Here at Harmony, going to college is something to celebrate and we do it in style! We hold College Acceptance Day Pep Rallies that are both celebratory for seniors and encouraging to the younger students. We dare you to watch this video of last year's pep rally in Houston and NOT get a tear in your eye! The most inspirational event of the entire year at Harmony Public Schools!
