Hello my name is Maria E Bonilla I'm a graduate from Horizon Science Academy in Lorain from the year 2016. Have been a student at Horizon Science Academy since my sophomore year of highs school. My experience with this school has been a bit of both great and not so great. While the they make a huge emphasis in education they lack the good quality nutrients to keep students engaged through the day. Their lunches are not the best quality. Good nutrition is very important to the quality of knowledge retained after lessons. the right source of nutrients helps a person keep students energized Overall, the school does an exceptional job at placing a huge importance in academics, supporting students, and maintaining a positive impression to all who visit the school.

This is a great school. I have been going here for 7 years, and I loved every aspect of it. The staff members truly care about their students, and they do everything in their power to help each child with whatever their needs are. The education is excellent, and the teachers want the kids to reach their full academic potential. There are a lot of different clubs and activities. Every child will find something they would like to do, and if not they can get help to create their own club activity. There is a great anti-bullying atmosphere, therefore making it a safe place to be for a student. Once a student gets to their junior and senior year in high school, Horizon takes their students on college visits, has college advisers come to the school, and also has career days to help each student find a way to make there dreams a reality. I recommend any child who wants to be on the path to success to go here.
I attended this school for 6 years. I have achieved what some believe is the absolute possible. I am proud to say I will be an alumnus of HSA- Lorain. This is a school where everyone knows everyone. The teachers and administrators can call out any student they want by first and last name. This school offers a loving, caring , and nurturing community.although sports are not an absolute focus like many schools in the area, I can say HSA is a school where dreams do come true.
