    What People Are Saying

    Real thoughts about our charter experience.

    Kristi K.

    Our daughter, Hannah, is in 10th grade and has been attending Horizon since 5th grade. Hanna's goal is to become a professional rider and trainer, competing at the Grand Prix level. Attending Horizon has allowed her to be able to maintain a rigorous riding and training schedule that a traditional school schedule would not allow.

    We  appreciate how thoughtful, caring, and responsive the teachers and staff are at Horizon and it has meant so much to us to have that support...Your caring and patience reflect how much your top priority is for students to learn. Once again, thank you! We have been very  happy with Horizon Charter and the attention the teachers give their students. I want you to know how much you, especially, are appreciated for your expertise and awesome student rapport.

    My child is at the Auburn location and we have had nothing but a great experience. He is a child with special needs, and IEP and everything has been accommodated that he needed. When there has been a problem the teachers have been more than happy to talk with me and adjust what needed to be adjusted. My son will be graduating early with AP courses and doing dual enrollment at Sierra College next year his Junior year. We have experienced public school system and another charter and by far Horizon has been the best experience for us. He has become more social, self-confident, and a happier student at Horizon.

    Enjoying that WE choose what our children learn, HOW they learn it and WHEN. HCS allows us the flexibility to tailor our kids education to fit their needs.
