Horizon Academy at Marion Oaks is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) magnet school, located in the heart of the Marion Oaks. Unlike most middle schools, we also have 5th grade classes, which allow upper elementary students to better adapt to team teaching, middle school behavior and academic standards.
Horizon is a Title I school, which means additional funding to supplement classrooms, provide technology to students and classrooms, and provide professional development for our staff and additional opportunities for all of our students. All of our students may join the community center, which provides computer access, games, social activities and more to the entire Marion Oaks community.
Horizon Academy is a unique school with unique academic offerings. Student clubs include the FFA, FBLA, SAVE Promise Club, Band, Relay for Life, NJHS, Drama and more. We also have competitive athletics programs in cross-country, volleyball, basketball, and track. It is our goal to ensure all students are prepared for high school and beyond. Our students understand that, “Good is Not Enough, when Better is Possible – and Better is a Never-Ending Quest!
