Horizon Elementary School


Here at Horizon Elementary, we believe in the power of a child’s mind. With decades of educational experience as teachers, school administrators, and parents, we understand that a child’s capacity to learn and be innovative is unleashed when we engage them.

Our Innovation Learning Before and After School Program 

Before and after school programs offer a great opportunity for children to explore, learn, and grow beyond regular school hours. That’s why here at Horizon Elementary, we offer Innovation Learning before and after school programs that help our students reach their full potential. From discovery play, to TINKER challenges, to DEN time (Decompress, Engage, Nourish), our before and after school programs at Horizon Elementary strive to ensure every student thrives. For more information on our Innovation Learning programs, call us today! 

Why Choose Before and After School at Horizon Elementary

Our Innovation Learning program is designed to engage students to be active participants in their education, while allowing them to have more control over their learning. By offering the flexibility for students to choose what and how they learn, our students naturally become more engaged with their education. This engagement, coupled with the specialized training we provide to our staff, positions our Innovation Learning students within attainable success. Over decades as career educators, we have crafted the ideal framework that marries structured, research-based and skill-building methods with adaptable, creative frameworks that allow children to become curious and creative innovators.
