Wonderful school, much better than Centennial. At least they have transportation, also, much more organized and friendlier staff and much better playground for the children! The principal at Centennial is a Crab in a half. I was not pleased with Centennial at all! I pulled my child out and tranfered her to Horizon, because we bought a home in the dist! thank God! Much happier now and so is my child.
I think Horizon is a great school. It is very diverse and includes Hard of Hearing and some Special needs students, as well as the Gifted Program. The diversity is wonderful for the kids, it represents the world today and I think prepares our kids for the future. The teachers are very dedicated and work hard to help all the kids succeed, not just the ones in their classroom. The Principal is very involved, she is outside when the kids arrive and again when they leave. She keeps the parents informed. She knows most of the kids by name. There is some parental involvement but more is always needed and appreciated. The test scores continue to rise and every effort is made to assist students that need extra help. Spanish and Sign Language classes are sometimes available for a fee as extracurricular activities. Basketball, track and choir are available.
The academic programs offered at Horizon are good. The teachers are wonderful! I see a satisfactory level of parent involvement. It would be nice to see more. It seems there are a handful of parents doing a lot and others not doing much at all. Overall, the school is good. If I could change one thing, it would be the strict guidelines of the district. It almost seems the school can not do anything without getting the district involved. More extracurricular activities for the children would be great and the landscaping and overall appearance of the school would be nice as well.
A wonderful learning enviroment. The educators are excellent. Our family has had children at this school for 10 years. With any school parent involvement is critical. The communication within the school is excellent also. I am very happy my children have been a part of this school and the district. Considering all of the hardships in the district, the parental support has been wonderful. Parents, get involved and stay involved. And parents i can't stress help your child read, it will open the doors to thier future education and llife skills. Read read read! a happy child is oone who can read!
