We have enrolled all three of our kids at Horizon Christian School. We could not be more thrilled with the experience they have had thus far. Our kids have come out of a great public school environment that was rich with opportunity. While our kids did well in that environment, the piece that was missing for us was a Christ-centered foundation and class sizes that enabled our kids to be supported. Our kids are thriving in their new environment academically, socially, athletically, and most importantly, spiritually. I can certainly understand where some of the negative feedback may come from, however, I have yet to find a perfect school that meets every need perfectly. We are grateful for the experience our kids are having and will continue to work to do our part as supportive parents.
Our kids have not experienced bullying at Horizon Christian, but we have seen a hands-on approach to teach groups of young boys and groups of young girls how to interact with one another. This has been particularly apparent in the Middle School at Horizon. While there seems to always be a bit of middle school drama that exists in any school, I applaud Horizon for taking the steps to talk about it and how students can work to treat one another with dignity and respect.
While every school can do better to support children with learning difficulties, Horizon Christian seems to have stepped up to the plate. At the Elementary and Middle School level I am told they have resources for kids struggling with dyslexia and ADHD. Additionally, the school started a program this past fall called Arrowsmith. It is a program that focuses on re-training the brain with different techniques and drills. I checked out the Arrowsmith website and it seems like a pretty incredible program in a time where too many kids are merely being shuffled through accommodations and are not appropriately supported.
Horizon has some phenomenal teachers and administrators who are truly dedicated to shaping and encouraging young people who will both add value to any environment to which they enter and be a great blessing to those they encounter.
Because of Horizon Christian's biblical foundation students are challenged to grow in their journey of spirituality while being encouraged to show respect and care for the students and teachers around them.
Each of the teachers at Horizon Christian display a true care for each student and family. There is an investment in our students that is tough to find in a day where many schools are busting at the seams due to overcrowding.
This school provides an extremely toxic environment for any child who is very smart, independent thinker, and has natural leadership abilities. The teachers we are dealing with are unfit and unable to communicate with parents at all!!! The principal and admin staff treat children and parents very disrespectfully!!! Unless your child is a robot who obeys blindly without any kind of an independent thought process, who doesn't mind being disrespected and emotionally damaged, DON'T send your child to this school!!!!!!!! We are taking our child out of this school!
If sports is more important to you then education the horizon is the place for you. I attended horizon and at first loved it but then realized that they took at least 10 mins out of each class to talk about sports not a good education!!!! I came here to get a better education. Also they only have 12 computer and not enough desks for every student. I suggest to you do. Or go her!
