Unfriendly unwelcoming Principal and some staff members. Didn't like the environment here at all for my child.
I am a high schooler who graduated from New Horizon several years ago. Not only did New Horizon teach me about my faith, but it also taught me how to answer questions and represent Islam to others. The academics were challenging enough for me to face middle school without an issue. The extra-curricular activities, such as art and music, made me interested to take more of these kinds of classes in middle and high school. I still have all the friends that I had made while I was a student there. Even after graduating, I am still connected with the New Horizon community and participate in alumni activities!
As another parent once put it, New Horizon Elementary School Irvine is a gem in our community. The strong academic education is perfectly balanced with inspired character development. I believe this is the perfect training ground to help our children become proud American Muslims that will one day become leaders - professionally and personally.
New Horizon School has changed my vision on life in many different ways. My child is so lucky to go to this excellent School. I wish every Muslim American student can attend this school to have the balance between American culture & the Muslim identity. My older kids were disadvantaged to attend New Horizon School. Inshaa Allah my grandkids will be lucky enough to attend it.
New Horizon Preschool has done a great job in helping the children develop wonderful empathetic children that think with their hearts that when they come to Kindergarten, they are ready and willing to work with one another in class. It is exciting for me as a teacher to have children come into a classroom with the excitement to help one another, or compliment another classmate or even to go and help someone because they notice someone needs help!!!
I am so happy that I chose New Horizon for my children. It provides a perfect balance of Islamic values and having an American Muslim identity. The school builds leadership skills in its students and listens to parents' feedback.The teachers and staff are very professional and go out of their way to make sure children experience success. Class sizes are small and students are given the regular curriculum as public schools, but they also have music, art, P.E. as well as Arabic and Relgious Studies. The staff and students are diverse and come from a variety of backgrounds. I'm so glad we chose this school. It offers much more than the local public schools.
I have two children that have been attending New Horizon for the last 4 years. I am very happy with the professional teachers and staff. Academically, my children are well above their grade level. I really appreciate having such a wonderful school in the community.
I am really happy to have my child in New horizon. I feel that my child is blessed to be the part of New horizon school.She learned a lot that sometime i feel that my child is Scholar already.New horizon is the place where your child experience Positive discipline, Best learning environment and respect.

Best environment in the best Islamic school. I pray to Allah to extend this school to middle and high school.
I have 3 kids in this school.I love the friendly and professional atmosphere that is around them all the time.My kids love their teachers and all of the school staff.In fact,I feel we are like a one big family there.We all work together for the best of our children.
This school is the best kept secret in Irvine! The small student to teacher ratio can't be beat - and the teachers/staff are all so warm and loving. There is nowhere else I can imagine placing my child where she would get the academic challenge and caring environment that she gets at New Horizon!
The best decision I made is to put my son in New Horizon Elementary school, Irvine. excellent teachers. very small class size. very understanding administration and efficient and proffessional board members. Children get one on one personal attention from every one. way to go New Horizon. keep up the good work.
