Harmony DC PCS is in the midst of a self-assessment process that includes feedback and input from the full school community including students, their families, teachers, and other members of your school team.

Your participation in this survey is anonymous and the data from these surveys will be used by a committee at your school to determine the strengths of your school, as well as the areas that may need improvement. The results of the surveys will also be provided to a team of visitors that will visit your school to validate the self assessment your school has completed and determine if your school should be re-accredited by the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools.
The following survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. There are 7 pages of multiple choice questions and the survey ends with three narrative questions where you are encouraged to share written comments.

Detailed Test Results 

Celebrating Our Outstanding State Test Results!

Dear Harmony DC PCS Families,

I am thrilled to share some incredible news with all of you. The results of this year’s state tests are in, and I am overjoyed to announce that we have achieved remarkable success! Our staff, students, and parents’ dedication, hard work, and commitment have truly paid off, and I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve accomplished together.

Our students’ outstanding performance on these state tests is a testament to the unwavering support and guidance they receive every day from our talented educators and staff. It reflects the countless hours of preparation, the innovative teaching methods, and the nurturing environment that we have all worked diligently to create.

I am immensely proud to announce that we have not only reclaimed the ground lost during the COVID-19 pandemic, but we have also soared higher than ever before.

Here are some remarkable highlights from this year’s state test results:

21.15% of our students achieved proficiency (Level 4+) in Mathematics, surpassing our pre-COVID levels by 5 percentage points!

17.30% of our students achieved proficiency (Level 4+) in English Language Arts (ELA) Test, surpassing our pre-COVID levels by 3 percentage points!

However, let’s acknowledge that even as we celebrate, there is more to be done. Our journey towards educational excellence is ongoing, and our commitment to continuous improvement remains unwavering.

I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to each and every one of you, our teachers, staff, students, and parents. Your hard work, dedication, and belief in our shared mission are what make Harmony DC PCS the exceptional place it is.

Once again, congratulations on these outstanding results. Thank you for being an integral part of the Harmony DC PCS Family.

Warm regards,

Muhammet Turkay, Ed. D.
Chief Executive Officer
