According to the release, Harmony Science Academy-City Place is the first of multiple Harmony Public School campuses planned to open on a 28-acre plot of land in north Spring over the next few years.

Scheduled to open for the 2025-26 school year, Harmony Science Academy-City Place will serve approximately 600 students in grades K-5 with a focus on science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, curriculum.

What parents should know

Harmony Public Schools is a Texas-based public charter school system with curriculum that focuses heavily on STEM skills, character education, project-based learning and college readiness. While charter schools are free of tuition, students must apply to attend the school and are selected through a lottery system if there are more students who apply than spots are available.

What's next?

Sally Magnuson, who serves as director of communications for Harmony Public Schools Houston North District, said a combined middle and high school campus is planned to open on the same property in 2027.
