Not happy! Wish I would have listened to my child and not forced him to go here. I don't find the work challenging and I have only seen a handful of teachers that really care. I am not impressed at all. My younger son will not be attending this school.

Being a current freshman, I have been able to identify with a variety ...  Read more

Of all the high schools in the district, Horizon has to be the best. The curriculum is challenging, as it pushes students to perform at their best, all the time. The choir program is definitely the best in the state, with their advanced ensembles placing first in all categories at a recent out-of-state ...  Read more

I am a current student attending Horizon and I feel insulted by all of these previous reviews, and obviously no new students such as freshmen or sophomores are going to feel comfortable with in the first two years. However, Horizon is the outlier of the other schools in the metropolitan area regarding ...  Read more
