  • When is Horizon Middle School going to fix their track? My child is afraid to walk on it because the weeds are so high.

  • When I first went to this school I have say that it was an amazing time for me! I have teachers that cared and worked hard. I remember Coach Worner who coached the girls' volleyball, basketball and track team. She was always pushing me to do my best! Mr. Disney who taught science, he made it fun and interesting to learn. Mr. Anderson also did science and even though he was missing a finger that never stopped him from anything. I loved my middle school years at Horizon Middle School! Sometimes I wish I can turn back the hands of time and relive it all over again!
