Statement of Purpose

Horizon School is dedicated to the academic, social, and emotional growth of our students.  Each of our students is unique, and each one can succeed if provided with good instruction in a productive environment.  Such an environment is characterized by high expectations, positive attitudes, firm but fair discipline, and cooperation between home and school.
