I really love this school! I have four children that have been through Horbelt and they have had a marvelous experience. My children aren't at the top of their class and much has been done to guide and support them while they are there. Not every teacher is perfect, but most of them are amazing! We feel so grateful that they have been at this school. They have made many wonderful friends, who have equally wonderful parents, so it's a blessing to have had the opportunity to be at this school that has the added benefit of a very supportive and inclusive PTA. Sure, I could list some minor complaints, but it's not worth it, the good far outweighs the less-than-perfect details. Good, openminded and supportive communication with teachers, aids, staff and the principal will always get you and your child exactly what you need to ensure the best education possible! Horbelt fosters a loving, motivating and caring environment!

I love most of the teachers at this School.. Some are very caring and are there to do what they love, TEACH. Dr. Saxton seems like a caring Principal, but the new office staff and nurse need a lot of tweeking. For one, their personalty and friendliness is lacking BIG TIME!!! As a parent, when I come into the office they should be greeting you, but instead you feel like your bothering them especially that new Sect'y up front don't know her name. My children's education is #1, so this would be an added bonus having a nice office staff..

This used to be a great school. Unfortunately the district decided numbers were more important than students. Since the new principal took over communication has been horrible. The principal hides in his office and whenever there is an issue it is always someone else's fault. The staff which used to be friendly has also adopted the new principals attitude and have become rude and uncaring. The only good thing about this school is the teachers. At least they still care for now.

This is an awesome school. The principle knows everyone and is very active with all activities (even programs and events after school and on weekends). The teachers are great and really have a wonderful communication system. There are lots of extracuricular activies; including a great music, band, chorus, drama department and teacher. They have consistant awards ceremonies to praise all the kids on their individual accomplishments. The mentor program is extremely helpful and encouraging for the kids. The academics programs make it fun and rewarding for the kids to learn.

I have two girls attending the Horbelt school. One is entering 4th grade and the other 2nd. The academics have been superb. The kids really get a ton of individual attention, the extracurriculars are wonderful and the school provides a safe and warm environment.
