    "So many things I dislike about this school I would have to be on a rampage to list them all. Academically I am far from impressed to the point that my child exceeding from Middle School on Aims to failing two and meeting on the other two. Had to pay for two tutors for math and physics. Only a handful of teachers are any good or communicate. The school counselor pretty much non existent and they can't help either. Oh and you must email, wait 12-13 hours for a response and you can not call them, god forbid you call. And drugs yes there are drugs. And I can tell you this school doesn't want to handle the issue. Read the Yelp reviews too, not much different from my impression. So not what I expected. So glad my kid is done."

    "My daughter is a Senior this year, we started out at PVHS that was plauged with gangs,drugs that were rampent, and kids being bullied and or assalted almost daily.....we moved to Horizon High and honestly it was best thing we could have done. Daughter loves school now and is going to continue on with her education. NO school is perfect ,but Horizon comes close. Only wish everything was not ala-carte...."

    "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."

    "Although this high school seems to have high academic standards for the college-bound student, it is greatly lacking in high expectations for it special education young adults. I was extremely disappointed when my high functioning autistic daughter had ninth grade teachers that refused to follow her I.E.P. or made a big deal of asking her if she wanted to go to the testing center in front of the whole class. I am a former teacher in the state, and I would not treat a special needs student in this manner no matter what his/her age may be. It appeared to me that most of the teachers did not want to invest the extra time to make my daughter feel welcomed to Horizon High School during her freshman year. The Special Education Department needs to address implementation of I.E.P.s and speak directly to the teachers that refusing to invest the extra effort, attention, and fortitude for the uniquely gifted population at Horizon High School. Our society cannot afford for teachers to give up on students needing extra accommodations to be successful."
