We feel sending our son to Horizon was the best decision we could have ever made for him. His excitement for learning grows every day. The staff is loving and encouraging, creating an environment of engaged learning for all their students. They go beyond teaching the basics; also teaching their students problem solving, critical thinking, compassion, integrity and how to find balance. The entire staff is welcoming to parents and work with parents to ensure their child's academic success.
