Horton Township Reviews

2 reviews
The Elk county region that i live in has a friendly atmosphere where everybody knows each other and are willing to help each other out when we need the help. There's lots of opportunity for the students to figure out they want to do as a career and the teachers in the Ridgway High School will help the students outside of the classroom.
