What do you think makes working at Horizon High School unique?


“What we do at Horizon is what makes us unique. We see teens with little to no self-esteem. Most feel they are ‘broken’ and feel like completely hopeless. We build them up, figure out what brings them happiness, and help them learn what they are good at. Then a transformation happens. They start to develop skills, knowledge and self-esteem. We save lives at Horizon and there really are no words to describe how that feels! It just keeps me coming back year after year! I have seen changes in teenagers that are so incredible; the things they overcome are amazing. I also work with people that have the same passion and desire to help teens that struggle to stay sober everyday. My co-workers are incredible!”

Horizon High School is unique because the students are truly kind hearted. They support each other no matter what. They are forgiving, they are compassionate, and once you spend time with them, they are interested in learning who you are as a true person. There's nothing superficial about this school. You get the real deal from each and every student whether you are expecting it or not. This is amazing and unique because the students are who they are and care for each other a great deal.

What do you like most about working about Horizon?


The students make Horizon unique. Horizon is more than a school, it's a community that these students have created for themselves. Each student is incredibly resilient, compassionate, and authentic- I am constantly inspired by their ability to overcome challenges, bounce back, and support each other. Because Horizon is a community, the staff and I are privileged to get to know each of the students and see them grow, not just academically, but personally as well. A student once said "the past does not define who we are, it's what we learn from our past and choose to do next that matters," and Horizon is a place where students can be real with each other, support each other, and learn to make positive changes together.
