    "I would like to address this school with a very loud and angry note, but I can't find one that would put Auburn HCS to justice. (I have not been to the other sites, just Auburn). For starters, I wasted 1 1/2 years of my high school carreer here and I really would that back. It's a disaster. The school's teachers and staff are poorly paid, the entire system is extremely unorganized, they're located in an office building in the middle of a parking lot, little discipline, no classroom challege for even the most average student, students may very from being friendly and close to chaotically immature and ignorantly disrespectful. There is no work to be done but busywork and school is only in attendance 2-3 days a week (which is nice but is not implimented to make the most of things). I frankly recall my mother accusing my Spanish teacher of going deaf, and my biology teacher announced himself as an extremeist christan and refused to teach evolution at the beginning of the year. They recieved a grant of 1000$, and used it to buy several widescreen TV's that they installed in the hallways. They're not even used. And they don't even have a yearbook anymore either. (submitted by student)"

    "This charter school pays less than most of the other charter schools in the area. I've also heard their teachers are paid less than most of the other charter schools."

    "This will be our 5th year with Horizon Charter. We really love our ST, but the school itself is laughably - and frustratingly - unorganized a lot of the time. We do the 100% homeschooling program, so we are less affected by that than I suppose we would be if we utilized any of the core classes. I have never found a good reason to trust my children's core subjects to the Auburn site - I'll leave it at that. We have, in the past, utilized Friday enrichment classes there (which dwindle down every year - this year there is only one, and currently it shows as merely "tentative"), which were OK, though I must admit I was annoyed that the teachers offered my kids soda, candy, and/or other junk food every single week. My kids refused the soda upfront, but eventually I had to tell them to quit taking the candy as well. Heavy pressure to teach-to-the-test, even in the 100% Homeschooling program. We may quit soon. The school seems able to offer us less and less of anything educationally valuable or useful (there isn't a single enrichment class left for my youngest child, now a 4th grader, for the second year in a row). School gets worse every year, IMHO."

    "I have been going to Horizon since 7th grade and I am currently in 11th. The school is very laid back, and mostly all the kids in my class have always been close. This is a great school if you want your kid to feel comfortable and avoid getting bullied, but the education isn't the best. Everything has always been very easy, and when it comes to the state testing everyone always looks confused a bit. I enjoyed my time here and met some of the greatest people I wouldn't have met elsewhere. --a student"

    "We love this school, this will be my fifth year. My children are educated at home and they attend the Friday classes at the Roseville site. My oldest daughter has special needs and their Special Education dept. is the best! She attends once a week: OT, speech and resource. The teachers and therapists are awesome. Received my curriculum early this year - I'm ready before school starts. Awesome school library - lots of support in however you choose to educate at home. My Supervising Teacher is wonderful, my kids love her."
