New Horizons High School (Alternative) Reviews

By a Parent on

I actually can't stand this school. My son has gone to New Horizon for 2 years now and the district will not let me transfer him to a regular high school where he wants more than 3 classes at once. He wants to learn without dealing with cops and hooligans all the time. The district made him transfer to this school for getting a truancy ticket for using the bathroom too long! I am furious the district will not let me put him in Century.

I have a niece and a daughter who went to New Horizons and I seen the difference it made in their grades and attitude toward school.  I think it is a good alternative and a good learning environment.

I graduated from this high school in 2005. I served 4 years active duty in the US Navy. Now I am going to DeVry university for a bachelor's in Computer Engineering Technology. Thank you New Horizon for making me a better person, and getting me through high school!

Well i think its not fair that we have to wear just jeans. I think we should be able to wear sweats! Not jammies but sweats.
