History of Harmony School
Harmony School was
founded in 1938 with the consolidation of Rosewood, Rhonesboro, Union
(Little Mound), and Honey Creek. The name "Harmony" was selected because
of the ease of passage of the consolidation. Other schools who later
consolidated with Harmony included Grice, Peach, Enon, Soules Chapel,
Latch, and part of Kelsey. The campus is located on Highway 154 ten
miles west of Gilmer and nine miles northeast of Holly Lake Ranch
between the communities of Rosewood and Rhonesboro. Harmony ISD includes
the western part of Upshur County and the eastern part of Wood
County.Approximately 1,050 students attend Harmony ISD.
