This is the absolute worst facility I've ever come across, the only goal they have is hindering your childs education. I've repeatedly been told to let my child acquire a GED...I had hoped they would help me show my child how important education was, not push him away from it~ In my opinion, they should fire most of the Office & rehire to try again. I pray other children have families that will come to bat to defend them as my child does. Good luck...no, really, you'll need it!!!

Horizon Center is very rpoductive in getting students back on the right path. Some students continue education, some have graduated and gone to college,and the service. Some students have even started their own businesses

Horizon Center's core curriculum is 'behavior modification'. The school is for the county's public school students who have been either removed from the traditional setting for behavior reasons or who are on other city/state mandated probations. The students are not well monitored, the campus is unsafe.
