The teachers try very hard to give the kids the best instruction, but it is really hard with VERY little support from the administration. Also, no follow through with policies that are in the student/parent handbook and very little communication from the office staff.
Worst school ever! Teachers be little the kids and don't listen to the kids. Staff doesn't know anything. Last year teachers were bullying the students, for proof search el camino real academy under local news online. So many bad things to say about this school
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.
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.
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.
