    "This school has changed my daughter in so many ways. I am grateful to be part of such an amazing community"

    "Horizons proved disastrous for our child, who attended all through elementary (K-5th). Lack of organization, no teacher accountability -always blaming students for lack of preparation and follow-up. Homework was not properly assigned, and when it was, it was poorly explained to the children. They were lost and did not know what they were supposed to be doing. It is filthy and disorganized. Do not send your child to this school unless you are willing to hire private tutors to do the work the teachers don't do."

    "Do not recommend this school. It came highly recommended, and I also liked the test scores. My son struggled in this school, he was bored and not at all challenged. Mixing grades also seemed to exacerbate the disorganization in the classroom and with parent-teacher communications. There were definitely more bumps in the road than anything else. We changed schools."

    "There is no way to express our love and appreciation for this school! My son has high-functioning autism and is in his fourth year of attendance (he attended one year at a district elementary school and that was a terrible experience). Teachers and staff have gone out of their way to not only modify content and teaching style to accommodate his needs, but to truly understand and embrace him as an individual. Teaching to a child's strengths is common place here, as is the celebration of each person's uniqueness. The low teacher to student ration and multi-age classes allow for teachers to really get to know their students and tailor learning that is just not possible at other schools. There have been some bumps in the road, but even those have been positive experiences. Staff has been more than willing to meet in a very timely manner to discuss what is in the best interest of my child, and then follow through with those changes immediately. At Horizons the parents are seen as a valuable part of the team. My child feels valued and respected here, as do I."

    "I wish that all children had the chance to attend a school like Horizons. Two of my three kids have attended, one who is twice exceptional (and not well served at his previous school), and one who started kindergarten here and has no particular learning challenges. Both thrived in this environment. The small class sizes, dedicated, creative staff, and involved parents make this a very unique place. The academics here are top notch, but more important are the lessons on communication, compassion, service, and exploration. Highlights include "dream homework" projects, outdoor education, service work at Community Table, the plays/musicals, and student-led conferences. This type of education on a BVSD budget requires some creativity on the part of the school, and some sweat equity from the families. How do we get small class sizes with the same (or lower) per pupil funding? Parents are expected to clean classrooms and volunteer in a variety of ways. This ranges from being on committees or in the classroom, to writing grants and making costumes. We do a lot of fundraising. The extra effort is well worth the rewards."
