[music directors aren't part of this] the teachers are here because they want to help but honestly they aren't really helping much.

Once a math teacher gave 3 pages of homework the day before humanities [that project included 4 parts], science, and language arts project was due. She also assigns at least one page a day.

Certain classes are great and make sure students have this branded into their heads others don't care.

I hate this school. Yes, some of the educators here are good or okay, but there are some educators that are only here for the money. For instance a teacher here will not clarify what they mean [math] and i know a student who had to drop out of honors math who has always been in all math honors classes possible through out the years and she still doesn't understand what the teacher is saying. The music part of the school is great though. The math teacher won't explain stuff in a different way even though lot's pf her students are struggling. Also there is a lot of misbehavior involving very strong language, drugs, bullying, and sex talk.[Some kids already lost their virginity]

The school lied and turned there backs on a very smart kid with autism this year. They would rather send them to a "special school" rather than educate themselves with kids with special needs. Also too many bullies here. Most of the staff is really new and afraid to say anything to the senior staff, and the senior staff loves being in that position. Less friction+ easier to do whatever they want.

Thank you to the teachers that helped, but no thanks to the teachers that gave up on my son because they just didn't have the time.

There are some teachers that are good, but most of the teachers I knew wont pick up the phone to let you know if your kid is doing bad.

Not at all. With so many bullies and victims running around in this school, how is the staff going to teach them this?

They could care less about kids with special needs, they care more about athletes and testing scores

Horizon is a good school with some excellent teachers. Also the administrators and front office staff are respectful and caring. I believe that my child is receiving a quality education. Unfortunately the parent involvement rate is not very high. It is also currently missing extras such as yearbook and student council. It would be beneficial if these activities would return. My experience has been that the staff here takes bullying very seriously and tries to address it appropriately. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a middle school in their area.
