Horizons Exploratory Academy Reviews

In my alternate education highschool I was president of the leadership committee. The school was majorly led by the students planning and setting up events. With the help of other classmates and students, we were able to find ways to fund a prom, recycle local residents' electronics in an environmentally friendly way, compose a video to present our idea of a school to a school board meeting, and help create many more opportunities for everyone.

Horizons gave me so many "out of the box" educational opportunities and helped me achieve so many things that I never even considered to be possible. I was able to explore possible career options while gaining HS credits. I was able to become a part of the workforce without having to sacrifice my education. The teacher really felt like they were there to help me, not to grade me.
