    "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."

    "We home schooled for four years. It was time to choose a regular school. From the start Doris is awesome her voice just makes me smile hearing it! Darlene and the rest of that staff cares they just do not ask why they say hope your child feels better. Dr. Mobley whom has gone above and beyond his job to help my family, Mr. Cady whom also goes above and beyond, Mr. O'Connor whom is a honorable man whom always does and says the right thing to make a bad situation good, his calming me during a bad day was amazing (all of the staff I have delt with has this in there voice and heart) Spencer and Dr. Downing made my child feel so special it was so nice to see two people whom love life and share that with everything they do, there impact on my child changed our lives forever!Last years front office woman whom now works for the Asst. Principal was amazing which is why she is where she is now. The Asst. Principal attending one of my childs iep meetings and smiled and never once made a comment like your not a teacher. Seriously, this school staff is amazing go meet them tell them I sent you. They know who I am even without you saying my name. Thank you Horizon, you changed us!"

    "As a parent with two kids in this school, I could not have asked for a better choice. The admin staff is awesome, the teachers are fair, and teach what these students need to succeed. There are many programs, sports and clubs to help the kids have a great experience. Kudos to the principal Dr. Courson for helping to make this school one that is top rated in the district, and the state! *my kids agree!"
