Good afternoon HSA Parents and Guardians,

I am Afreen Merchant, the Principal at Harmony Science Academy Sugar Land. On behalf of the faculty and staff I welcome you to a new academic year. We are honored to continue serving so many families and making a difference in the lives of our children. For those who have not met me, I have been with Harmony Public Schools for eleven years; serving as a teacher, dean of academics, dean of students and now principal. I have been the Principal at HSA SL for the past four years and I cannot thank you enough for your unwavering trust and tremendous support. I look forward to partnering with you in an effort to provide the best education possible to your child (ren).

My goal for this year as it has been in the past years is to ensure that each child grows academically but more importantly to have them grow to be healthy, happy and well-rounded citizens. At HSA SL we have certified teachers that utilize research based best practices to analyze academic data to help determine each student’s current skills in order to set goals for student improvement, growth and achievement.  We strive to equip every student with the best skillset to help them achieve their highest potential. Thank you for entrusting us with your most prized possession – Your children!

As excited as I am to welcome you through this letter, it is the face-to-face interactions that I value most. Here at HSA SL we have an open door policy, and I welcome the opportunity to meet with you. We look forward to collaborating with all our families in providing our children the best education as we ensure they grow to be productive citizens in society.

It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, students and staff care and support each other as we grow our learning community. Once again, welcome back and let’s make it another Fabulous Year!

Always for the Children! J


Afreen Merchant
