First year students, upperclassman are your biggest tools and they love helping you figure out where your classes are and the best ways to study! So many club opportunities as well as the option to create your own club. High school teachers are extremely helpful with both their and college courses. The San Jacinto South campus is so diverse, fun, and over the top filled with different resources to help you succeed. Absolute 5 out of 5 stars. My experience there was amazing and I wish everyday I could go back and re-enjoy my high school career.

Clear Horizons Early College High School is a great financial choice for high school students who are planning to go to college. It offers a high school curriculum that is fused with college classes throughout a four-year period allowing the student to graduate with an associate degree. All of this is paid back in the form of volunteering hours in which 20 hours are required every year from students attending. Each grade 9-12th is relatively small with around 125 students max so it’s easy to get to know all your classmates. The only downside with Clear Horizons is the extracurriculars that are offered. Sports are not offered from the high school and it is lacking in the club department. Overall, this high school offers a great trade off, having 20 hours of volunteering a year for an associate degree, however it lacks the extracurricular life of a regular high school.
My first two years being at Horizons were fantastic. The principle and vice principle set a golden standard and had clear expectations of how we were suppose to act as guests on a college campus. They knew the names of everyone by face and it provided a certain accountability that helped keep students preforming at a high standard. Since they have left upper management no longer has the before mentioned qualities. I'm in my senior year so I live on the college side of campus more, having only one high school class. My teacher is awesome, but I've noticed when walking though the halls underclassmen are not behaving as was once expected and no repercussions are befalling them. I'm hoping that the problem is temporary. After all I'd say a 1/3rd of the office staff have turned over, once they get on their feet ideally Horizons will go back to being what it was my freshman year.
