Horizon Academy provides individualized instruction in a calm, respectful environment. It is not unusual to see a child working on eighth grade math next to a child working on third grade math. Access to current curriculum and technology make this possible. Social skills and responsibility are taught and emphasized across the curriculum every day. The staff are highly qualified and do a great job of modeling respect. Each child is encouraged to develop and reach their personal goals. It is a relief to send our child to a school that understands and respects his differences and does everything they can to help him achieve his personal best.
Horizon is a school for students with specific learning disabilities, high-functioning autism, ADHD, and other mild/moderate disabilities. The teachers do a good job of individualizing instruction. Students manage their learning needs with strategies focusing on information processing and strategic instruction.
My 4th grade son with a high functioning autism was struggling in the Blue Valley School District. (academically & socially) We decided to send him to Horizon Academy for their summer program & had no intentions of sending him there all year. That all changed once my son went to Horizon over the summer. He loved the teachers, the low student to teacher ratio & all the kids too. He literally begged to go there full time. He has now attended two full summers & is finishing up his second full school year there. He has friends & is making more academic progress than he did in the Blue Valley School District. Horizon Academy is a warm, loving environment for kids with learning disabilities. It has literally changed our son's life in so many positive ways.
Horizon Academy offers a multisensory approach to learning where each student's educational program is individualized according to his or her own needs. Each student learns at his or her own rate in a nurturing environment that understands the way a student with learning disabilities learns.
I wish Horizon Academy had been here for my sisters 20 years ago! The teachers and staff do a superior job preparing students to learn in a traditional school setting.
Superior school, individualizes to every student and provides direct, diagnostic teaching to their specific needs so they can return to a traditional setting with significantly increased opportunities for success.
Horizon Academy is a terrific place to work with a safe, caring atmosphere and the utmost focus on the kids. I love it here!
Horizon Academy is a wonderful place to work. Our staff is very supportive and caring of the students and each other. We teach the whole child and always help them strive to show their personal best in all areas. I love working here!
Horizon Academy is a community of dedicated and compassionate (and passionate) teachers, administrators and staff, board members, parents, and most importantly students. We share one common goal...to provide families a carring and respectful learning environment for children struggling with learning disabilities. Students who attend Horizon have the oppotunity to achieve their highest potential. I am inspired everyday by the students I teach and by their families' commitment to our school.
I work at Horizon Academy and have never been associated with such wonderful professionals that have great knowledge in special education and superb heart for their students.
I observed Horizon Academy for 3 months. What a wonderful school! Everyone was exceptional: Ms. Kennedy, Mrs. Asher, Mr. Knight and Coach Richmond all were wonderful! Keep up the great work!
My daughter has made amazing changes since coming to Horizon. The staff is loving and talented and very patient! We love this school and the other families who attend.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! This school is very well run and full of compassion. The teachers are great and the kids feel confident and excel in their learning. Best move we ever made!
