Horizon science academy has been a really great school for me, they have always been on top of our stuff. Our school is a very friendly environment and helps us with anything that we need. Our school also has a lot of good programs, clubs and ect. This school has had this program called CYSP which is a program that helps a lot of students to complete their community service hours through out their high school year and other activities that will look good in your high school transcript, and that is one of the things that I liked most about this school that they prepare you for college.

This school is small. There are small classrooms, one on one interactions with students and teachers. The school also offers a lot of clubs and activities for the students to partake in. The schools learning material is easy and students have a different rang of classes, from AP courses to honors classes to regular classes. It is easy to keep up at this school and teachers are willing to work with students who are struggling and need extra help. Tutoring is provided for every class on a weekly bases.
Overall Horizon Science Academy Mckinley Park is a really great school! Teachers and students there have a bond and we can easily go to anyone there for help on almost everything. Only problem is that I wished it felt more like a high school for us older students there.
