Horizon an A+ School... again!

Horizon High School A+ School of Excellence

Horizon High School has earned the A+ School of Excellence™ Award from the Arizona Educational Foundation (AEF). Horizon was one of 39 Valley schools to receive this prestigious honor.

This is the second time that Horizon has received this honor. The school first earned the A+ designation in 2013.

According to the AEF website, schools are evaluated in the areas of student focus and support, school culture, active teaching and learning, curriculum, leadership, community and parent involvement and assessment. The selection panel includes award-winning principals, teachers and community leaders. Panel members conducted site visits to selected schools throughout the state in order to choose A+ School of Excellence™ award winners.

Each school will receive $500 and a banner designating it as an A+ School of Excellence™. All staff and faculty at the awarded schools are eligible for partial scholarships from Argosy University Phoenix.

Schools that earn the A+ School of Excellence™ designation retain their status for a 3-year period after which time they must reapply for the award.
