This is a great school for my child academically. The school started off small but it is growing every year. The communication with the parents is quite high and you are always welcome in the classroom. The only negatives are the class sizes, they run about 50 kids to a room with two teachers. Another negative is no serious sports program and no clubs. The fundraising is constant, it is a public school yet it is run like a private school when it comes to fundraising. You need to be financially secure to send you children to this school, or they will feel left out.
This was a good choice for my daughter for 5th, 6th and 7th grade, coming from a small rural CO school to the BIG Kyrene school district of Phoenix. She was a little fish in a big pond. She has blossomed at Horizon. Hands Across the Border Program to Mexico (Spanish exchange) has been awesome! The weekly stats sent home really help identify any deficiencies/problems before they get huge, and the dress code takes the burden off me! I like the almost year roung format as well. Academically I am fairly well satified but the limited sports programs (as well as the constant fund raising efforts) at Horizon are tempting me to transfer her to Centennial MS for 8th grade.
Safe school, great learning environment, but school is in dire need for more of the major sports. This would make the school more appealing to student-athletes. The competetive edge is missing as the sports is open to all almost like a little league team. Not to mention the donations asked for are quite high.
