    "As an Horizon alum, I would strongly advise you to think more than twice before enrolling students. I'm a Sun Devil now and in no way was I prepared for college. High School classes are not college prep, students are NOT well rounded and virtually no-one goes to an out of state selective college, reason being students arent good enough and the school does not prepare you well, may be OK for K-5, I only joined later, but heck you had better run fast to Desert Vista High School, if you want to be college prepped and have the chance to go OOS"

    "Great School, great teachers, great families. When you live in Arizona and you have young children, it's not always easy to find the right fit. I feel as an Ahwatukee resident, we are so fortunate to have so many outstanding choices in education. Horizon was the right fit for our family. We have a 1st and 2nd grader. They are both doing so well. They are challenged and assisted and cared for. The teachers are so hands on, so thoughtful and so wonderful at communicating and working with each child so they maximize their learning and development."

    "My child started at Horizon this year in the 9th grade and has had a very rough time with the student and the teacher being very rude to him, if your child need a little help with school work don't put your child in this school, all they are worried about his the student that will make the test score look good.Very bad school."

    "I am very surprised by the bad reviews especially considering the high school is ranked #17 in the state by U.S. News and World Report. Of the other High Schools in the area, Corona del Sol is #29 and Desert Vista is #33. Mountain Pointe wasn't in the top 50. When we decided to leave the Christian school we considered a lot of different schools for our three girls and Horizon came highly recommended by some teachers. So we packed up and moved to be closer to Horizon Honors. As is the case with every school it is not perfect so if that is your measuring stick you will need to look elsewhere, though I'm not sure there is a High School in Heaven. My girls are in 3rd, 5th and 8th grades. The two youngest our both in 5th grade math with different teachers. I appreciate how kids of different ages can be challenged in a way that is subtle yet encourages each student to succeed at whatever level they are at. For the most part the teachers and administration are doing a great job. Anytime I have needed to contact a teacher for any reason they have always been quick to response. I feel very strongly that you would be Blessed to have your kids at Horizon Honors. We are."

    "terrible. k-5 is just ok, but after that - put your kids in public school, they will accelerate like you won't believe. this school is definitely NOT geared towards junior high Or High school - teachers have favorites and everyone will know it. I had two kids there and my oldest graduated from there 8 years ago and he Still holds it against me. my other had so much trouble there - failing in most classes and the teachers were Not there to help, so I pulled her out and she went to Mtn Pointe and shot straight to A's and B's. I now wish I had sent both of my kids to mtn pointe for high school. trust me, if you love your kids and want the best for them and want them to be happy - get them out of horizon."
