WACO, TX — Harmony Science Academy in Waco has been growing throughout the school year, but not through its student enrollment.

Since June of 2018, 14 women on the staff at the school have welcomed a baby or are expecting.

The school said baby boom can’t be explained and the number of pregnancies is just coincidental. The teachers are taking this unique experience and using it to help bring the staff closer together.

“So, it’s a neat opportunity to get to share not only in the work that we do and the way that we teach our students and care for them but also talk with the moms about how are you feeling today, are you experiencing this, is this normal for those first-time moms who aren’t familiar with pregnancy and birth,” said Madison Ramoin, who teaches first grade at Harmony. “With so many new teachers having come in, we kept telling them 'don’t drink the water, don’t drink the water,' and, sure enough as the year has progressed we’ve gotten more and more people [expecting].”

The Harmony Science Academy campus in Waco teaches approximately 680 students in pre-k through sixth grade.
