This school has everything a parent can wish for! Incredibly dedicated teachers that are well educated and understanding to each students needs. A devoted principal who has put her heart into this school, and her devotion shows through her motivated team of incredible teachers and staff. A PTO that will put hard work into helping the schools fundraising projects, baking sales and yearly events. It's truly warming to see so many parents take part of the schools regular activities. We feel that we are all part of a big family, the school has opened up its arms to us and welcomed us to be part of its amazing and nourishing environment. We feel blessed to have our children attend this school and we look forward to seeing them graduate from here. We are part of the New Horizon School in Pasadena, a Blue Ribbon school, that will surely continue to grow and provide the high quality education it's known for. Our hearts are voting for you, even though we are truly winners already! Thank you for helping us raise our children to become the best that they can be!

Excellent academics in a warm and caring environment. Really, we couldn't be happier with the school. Our eight-year-old has been there four years and he loves it.

Weve been at New Horizon School for 7 years now. My son started from pre-school and now he is in 4th grade. Its a great school their academic programe is so strong and always updated with the best tools to help our kide excelerate. It has a wonderfull music program ,and the music teacher is the best . There are 2 concerts a year preformed by students from pre-school throug 8th grade in the auditorium . What makes this school special is the parent involvement and because its not a big school in size everyone knows everybody. We personly meet our best friends through the school .For us this school has met all what we need in our childs education and we are so happy with it and we wish them all the best.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
