Overall, Horizon High School is an amazing learning environment for a diverse range of students! There are not only more then enough academic opportunities for everyone who wishes to search for them, but there are also a plethora of clubs and extracurricular that they are more than sure to find their place in. Although each teacher employed here has their own style of teaching, there is no doubt in my mind that anyone who wishes to walk out of here with a new education, will have their chance to do so.

Horizon High School is a school with great techniques of study and teach. The environment in this area is excellent. Relation between teachers and students are professional. Teachers all time are available to talk to you about how you could you improve yourself. If you need help with personal problems, counselors are open to talk to you about whatever you need. Security staff are always waving you to make feel safe. If I will have to change, will be the food in the cafeteria. This is in small portions that this is not to bad, but the variety and distribution of this year, it is. Most of this year the variety of product (food) is most the same all week, the same type of sandwich. Other years the variety was every day different products and repeat a least three times at month, but now repeat twice weekly. The variety of food will be the thing that I like change. Take this theme out, all the reference to the academic education is fine and excellent.
I enjoy participating in the sports available at my campus. There are many clubs to choose from as well. The school’s music program is young but rapidly growing. I would love to see improvement in the overall attitude of faculty and staff towards their student’s success. Their encouragement and dedication to students is stunting the school’s overall academic performance. I would also like to see a greater number of more diverse programs and courses available to students throughout the entire year, including the summer.
