I am a Senior here at Horizon Science Academy, I've been here since 6th grade. Over the years it has changed a lot and made great changes. The changes I would love to see is high school getting their own building. Or they can improve the lunches as time goes on. That's all it's a very good school, all about keeping their students on track for a great future!

Very friendly environment. Teachers are very hands on with their students and like to build strong relationships. When you graduate from this school, most likely you will be ready for college. The school is also very cultural with a mix of Turkish and Spanish teachers offering many different events and activities after school and during. All in all this school is one school that I can officially say is very good academic wise and worth the years of effort to graduate from.
Horizon is a college ready school. It helps students get ready for the real world.It is a charter school so things are ran a little different but overall the school is very engaged in academics. Its like being in college in high school. All you hear in high school is the word COLLEGE over and over because teachers really care about your future. I absolutely recommend Horizon Science Academy to students in Lorain, Ohio.
