Horton Middle School Reviews

I found my experience at Horton to be terribly stressful and isolating. While middle school years are usually difficult for most American public school students, Horton's teachers, administration, and students did not make it any easier. I found the administration to be biased or absent. The teachers were patronizing to students and their families, which in turn caused students to disrespect the school's staff and faculty and their peers. The drama was so disruptive I found that it took away from my education. The available electives in the arts, language, and other career skills were seriously lacking or non existent. I do not blame any single person for the reputation Horton has as the lesser of the Chatham County middle schools, but rather the community as a whole who did not prioritize the children's education to come first. There were some great teachers that I'll never forget, but unfortunately this does not make up for my personal misfortunes there.

This place will make your kid sad. Find somewhere else. Teachers are condescending and have zero respect for the feelings of any of the humans they teach. It's ridiculous, and it will break your heart as a parent. But things change over time, so maybe things will change here also-- until then, I'd stay away.
