Horizon Science Academy Southwest Chicago is a very nice public charter school. The staff are friendly and dedicated to their students. The entire building is bright and colorful and most importantly, safe. The classrooms have a healthy level of learning "noise" and the teachers seem to make learning fun and challenging.

I enjoy the friendly environment Horizon Science Academy staff gives. They are beyond helpful and have shown that they want nothing but success for their students. I also enjoy knowing that students are not discriminated against due to their clothing since the school is a uniform school. They will not be distinguished on their looks but distinguished on their ability and intelligence. They also provide many services for the students such as after school activities, college trips, tutoring, etc.
I loved that the teachers care about the students, while at other schools they just seem to care or not at all. They also have a very welcoming environment.
