Horizons Independent Study School provides outstanding opportunities for students who (1) can't go to regular school because of other commitments (e.g., sports); (2) want to finish school faster; or (3) don't like going to regular school. Each student at Horizons gets an individual advisor who helps you through the year. Advisors are wonderful: very knowledgeable and caring! You get free help for math! Plus you can complete courses at the local community college earning college and high school credits at the same time. Love it.

I joined Independent Study my freshman year and I love all my teachers, they have helped me prosper in my high school career. You have one on one appointments with your teacher and this allows for an excellent learning experience. They allow you to take control of your learning and I have met some of my best friends here.
The teachers are dedicated to the students' success and offer as much support as they can. It is the responsibility of the student to succeed, but the school makes it easier. I like being independent and working at my own pace while still having the support of my teachers.
