NHHSA does its utmost to serve the individual needs of each of its students, even disciplinary cases. However, for the welfare of all families concerned, there is always a reasonable line that must be drawn, and NHHSA does so with its policy on illicit drug use while attending the campus. No NHHSA student has ever been required to study off-campus except where illicit drug use or threat to the safety or well-being of other on-campus students is concerned. We are disappointed when we have to do so, but we must protect the integrity of our school and all students in our care. NHHSA does, however, appreciate your feedback.
This school changed my son's life! He was struggling just to get to school, every morning was a fight and we had multiple visits from the truancy officer. After several months of New Horizons, last year, he is disciplined, playing sports in public school, and brought his grades up from last year. I am happy to have found this school! The director is so involved in the education of students, she really does care. The teachers care and it made all the difference! I highly recommend both the classroom and the home study program.
I was so afraid to leave the public school system and thought that our son telling us every week that he's bored was just part of him being a kid. Not until we recently enrolled him in the NHHSA did we realize what it was like to witness your child absolutely blossom! He's respected for his individuality, stimulated creatively, nurtured socially and challenged academically. We are truly blessed to have found this hidden gem in El Paso. The independent learning infrastructure may not be for every child but wow when you take a GT child and let him or her push their capabilities rather than get sucked into the typical classroom routine where the bright kids are bored, unchallenged and unmotivated while the teacher is trying to get 33 other students to a level required to pass the STAARS test you see a complete transformation in their approach to learning and achieving academic success! We are truly grateful to the administrator and educators at NHHSA!
New Horizons Home School is the perfect fit for my nephew! Since enrolling this year, the personal attention and care Ms. Boyer and her staff have given Eddie has been invaluable. He is beginning to experience success for the first time in a long time. The care and attention the staff gives is an important element in the education process. Thank you New Horizons.

New Horizons has been a very big blessing for our family. Having searched high and low for the perfect school, we finally found everything that we were looking for at NHHSA. We not only found a great administrator and great instructors, but also a place that would allow my child to be himself. We are extremely happy with New Horizons Home School Academy. Thank Ms. Boyer and A.J. and all of the wonderful staff!!
I want the best possible education for my children. The New Horizons Home School Academy offers skilled, engaging, and compassionate teachers. They allow my children to grow. They allow them to be stimulated by new ideas and ways of thinking. They give them a sense of accomplishment and encourage team spirit. These are all excellent lessons they need to learn in order to be successful adults. I m very proud of the school my children attend. I would definitely recommend New Horizons Home School Academy.
I love the school. The staff is great and my son seems to be excelling more in all his work. Hes been going to this school for 4 years. He loves the staff... They treat him like family
Wonderful school! My kids have loved coming to this school and have just blossomed here. The teachers are great and give the individual attention needed, staff is friendly and always willing to help. My son had struggled with ADHD, in public school they simply put him in special ed and refused to work with him any further, but once I brought him here he shined! They came up with a program that has done wonders for him. Very happy to have found this school.
New Horizons changed my son's life. He has Asperger's and suffered from non-stop bullying in the public school system. New Horizons treats students with dignity and respect, and teaches the students not only academically, but behaviorally. They addressed the few problems I had immediately and with the utmost fairness to everyone involved. They are a shining example of how schools should be for the wellbeing of our children.
Honestly my experience with this school has been very wonderful!!! the staff is always very professional and very caring towards my son he is 9 going on ten and is very happy as a student there, i actually have a boy on the way and am excited to say that he will be attending this school as soon as he is potty trained =) i would recommend this school to any parent who is looking for a school that cares about a students academics and their individual personalities.
I love this school and what it has done for my family! My child has been going there for 5 years and I am very satisfied with the level of professioalism and its approach to education that I feel no other school does. Your child is not treated like a number or statistic they are treated with respect and with their success in mind. I would not take my child anywhere else.
My two kids have been attending New Horizons Home School for 6 years. I have found the school to be excellent academically, fair in disciplinary matters, and great in their sets of values and their ability to keep the needs of the kids in mind. I would take my children nowhere else! Where other schools have failed New Horizons has excelled, good job everybody!
I concur with the other parents on this so call school. I have been very displeased with my experience with New Horizons Home School Academy. As a parent I feel it is my right to ask questions and come to a resolution when it involves the education and well being of my child, but asking questions only seems to leads to problems. When dealing with an issue that concerns my child's education, I feel the school has handled my concerns unprofessionally and without a solution. This school is run more like a family business rather than a school for children. Sadly their priories and unprofessional ways of handling things has affected many children and their families.

When dealing with an issue that concerns my childs education, I feel the school has handled my concerns unprofessionally and without a solution. This school needs to learn to be a part of the solution rather than a part of the problem. In order for a school to be successful, the administration, teachers, parents, students and support staff must work as a team. Principals must work with the staff to make school a welcoming place for all students and their families, sadly this is not the case at New Horizons Home School Academy.
This school's method of working with students that have "disciplinary problems" as described on their website is to actually dismiss, expel or move the student to another program when they have a disciplinary issue at the parent's expense, without truly working with the student to improve his/her discipline. Also, students are given study material and are left to work on it on their own, while they are sitting in a warehouse with climate/temperature problems, turned into a "classroom" environment and the "teacher's" way of assisting a student is to refer to a book or the Internet and tell the student to read about the answer, without taking the time to really assist him/her.
Teachers are great here, they are very involved and actually seem to care not only about my daughters education, but for her well being and personal growth. I am always informed of my daughters progress and have a good relationship with educators as well. Since attending this school my daughter has found she actually likes school and the work she is doing! All around great programs tailored for each individual student. A delightful school, so happy to have found it!
