Harmony Florida is home to two community schools within our master-planned community. Both schools provide unique programs and clubs that encourage leadership skills and push students to be their very best. At our K-8 Harmony Community School, our "The Leader in Me" program promotes just that.

Living in a neighborhood that offers a school within walking distance has many benefits for kids and parents alike. Oftentimes, when looking for a place to call home, parents actually choose a community based on its schools. Picking a neighborhood with A-rated schools is important for a number of reasons.
There are many benefits of neighborhood schools vs non-neighborhood schools. Here are a few...
- Neighborhood schools are located close to home, making it easy for kids to walk or ride bikes to school. This is not only a fun alternative for kids who may have been used to riding the bus or car to school in years past, but a healthy one, too. Commute time is a big factor to think about, but one that may often be forgotten. If your kids have to ride a bus to school, they will have to wake up earlier and spend extra time traveling to and from school due to the stops along the way.
As a nation, we are split on our assessment of the quality of education, but many believe schools would benefit with greater community involvement and being a community with two schools in walking distance, we couldn't agree more!
