This school is the worse, the office staff knows nothing! the school is run by the clerical assistant. The principal never shows her face.

This is my sons first year at this school and it has been a positive experience for him and I. He has improved 100%. The staff takes the rime toensure that the student succeeds through their behavior and grades. I would recommend this school to everyone. A very pleased person.

My children attend this school but I am very disappointed by the front office staff. They are very unorganized and unprofessional. The Principal and Assistant Principal do not return phone calls or seem to be involved with the success of students.

my daughter has been going to this school for 2 years. her teachers have been very good but the office administration is lacking. The principal and assistant principal are never seen and when i call to speak with one of them 'they are busy and will return my call' they have not returned my call yet. Horizon would do better if they had better administration.

Too much chaos at the school and no one knows what is going on. I was treated very rudely by the assistant principal when went there.

I have 2 girls that attend Horizon. I can not belive the lack of responsiblity from the office staff. I have seen the principle one time in the 4 years we have been there. The police is there onece every week. The assistance principle is doing her job and the principles too. We have two securities there that are not doing there job. I have been to the office to talk to someone and no one is available to talkl to me. I have had to sitt in the lobby for up to 2hrs to see someone and I never have had anything resolved. All I get is we will look in to it and give you a call. I have called back and they are always busy. Some one need to checking them to make sure they are doing there job.

I don't think the administration listens to concerns. There is a lot of confusion at the school.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 8, 2007

The Administration, Parent-Teacher Organization, and Governance Council operate independently without consistency in communication to parents or students. The buildings are in dire need of repair and maintenance. The school was closed for one week without advanced notice to parents or students (administration hung a 'closed' sign on the front door early one Monday morning). Students use out-dated editions of science and math texts.

I think Horizon Academy is a great school. They have had problems in thepast but they are moving forward with getting the school situated and the stability of things being put into place. Thank you guys for your hard work and dedication to making this a great school!

I'm very disappointed with Horizon. We have been here since the beginning, my son started kindergarten when this school first opened. He has had great teachers for the past 4 years. But the administive staff is lacking. We were promised so much before the school opened and we have yet to see it. The play area is shameful, the student to teacher ratio is too high, there is not enough afterschool extracurricular activites. Since the high school merged with the elementary the office staff seems not to care about the little kids anymore, their to busy with the bigger kids always getting in trouble. I'm sadden by the fact that my son will no longer be attending horizon, only for the fact that he will miss the friends he has made over the past 4 years. Anna Zaragoza

I don't think the principals or staff at Horizon are interested in parent concerns. Their response to parent concerns are: 'Fill out a form.' I have yet to receive feedback on forms filled out over the past four months. Their concerns with children are not academic but who is throwing a snowball. They suspend children for throwing a snowball at a fence and tell parents this is aggravated battery in their dictionary. They are seriouisly lacking in knowledge of what their own policies are and cannot show parents their policies when asked. Horizon Academy is not a good school.

I have had both of my sons enrolled in this school since the school opened. Overall, I have been happy with the school. It does have some problems, but compared to the area schools where my sons were enrolled, it was a positive move. In time I belive this school will be a great school. I have never regretted the decision to keep my children in this charter school and out of a regular APS school.

I know it is a good school. I also know that they complain that the school doesn't fuffil there promises. I think they shouldn't complain cause they don't help raise the money to help fuffil the promises.I would know cuase I go to this school. Soon to be 6th grader.

Horizon Academy South has been a beacon of hope compared to the other public schools in the area. Our son is thriving in his classroom and has completely benefitted from the low student to staff ratio and he has a teacher aid in the classroom. A 1:9 ratio with the teacher aid. There have been multiple monthly opportunities for parent involvement; it is up to the parent(s) to be involved in school and with follow up at home with the homework. I have been welcomed by the teacher to visit the classroom at any time and have done so. I appreciate that he is exposed to art and various methods of hands on teaching.

Very disapointed. Horizon promised to be a great school. But is not. Staff changes every year. The principles and teachers care more about analyzing the kids instead of teaching. They make a parent very frustrated and unwelcomed. My daughter had great teachers this year. But my son did not. The school did nothing to help. They really need to get their act together. To many promises not enough kept. We were there since day one, but no more.

I think Horizon is an improvememt over the other schools in the area. The discipline is very strict. The teachers are all very professional, and very willing to help any student that is struggling. My children love the school and are excited to go to school everyday. The school has lots of workshops for the parents to become involved in their childs education. Horizon has been wonderful for our childrens education.

I am disappointed that alot of things promised by the school the first year never came through. The teacher to student ratio was suppose to be know more that 22 students per teacher now some of my sons classes have up to 30 students in them. This is disappointing, it makes me ask why am I driving an hour round trip every day? Not to mention that the classes don't even have teacher aides. Overall I am not happy with the school right now. I am currently looking at other school options and trying to get something accomplished at this school.

I think Horizen Academy south is a overall good school. My ten year old son has some problems with the older boys. I don't like the expanion of the school is a bad idea. This disappoints me. It will cause some problems in the near future.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted September 27, 2004

This school is a ok school. I just don't think the teachers have enough one on one interaction with the students. My daughter comes home not understanding her homework. I really think there should be more parent involvement. I am really disappointed with the overall quality this year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Mexico used the New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA) to test students in grades 3 through 8, 10 and 11 in Reading and Math, and grades 4, 7 and 11 in Science. The NMSBA did not report Science results in 2012. As of 2012, New Mexico no longer uses the New Mexico High School Standards Assessment (NMHSSA) to test high school students, and instead uses the NMSBA to test high school students. The NMSBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Mexico. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

In 2012-2013 New Mexico used the New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA) to test students in grades 3 through 8, 10 and 11 in Reading and Math, and grades 4, 7 and 11 in Science. The NMSBA did not report Science results in 2012. As of 2012, New Mexico no longer uses the New Mexico High School Standards Assessment (NMHSSA) to test high school students, and instead uses the NMSBA to test high school students. The NMSBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Mexico. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

The different student groups are identified by the New Mexico Public Education Department. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
