Since 1991, Horizons K-8 has offered a relationship-based and engaging program where students consistently meet or exceed rigorous academic and behavioral expectations. With a balanced focus on high academic expectations and individual attention to the whole child, our committed teachers guide students to become self-directed learners and community contributors in a respectful and caring environment. Student-led family conferences, portfolios, and performance based assessments keep learning relevant and authentic. Our high interest curriculum offers a variety of developmentally appropriate academic experiences both inside and outside the classroom, including outdoor education, service learning, performances, arts and sciences, and Spanish instruction school wide. In recognition of high academic achievement by students and the consistent hard work of an innovative and dynamic staff, Horizons has repeatedly been awarded the Colorado Department of Education John J. Irwin School of Excellence Award.
