    Good Day Horizon Families!

    I hope that all are healthy and are managing the day to day stresses that I know everyone is under at this point. Daily we hear and read about the suffering in our county, state, nation, and the world. We have all heard about the setbacks in the lives of workers, athletes and people in general. Many of you may be dealing with the many obstacles that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused. I know most will agree with me that this is also a terrible setback for our community, especially our students.


    If you need help with anything, food, rent, health questions, don’t hesitate to call 2-1-1 for assistance, or let one of us at Horizon know what you need. We will help you find the right person or agency for you. As for the New Normal and distance learning, I promise you that the teachers, support staff, and I will commit ourselves to helping our children and their families stay connected to school. Our plan is work through all courses in a distance learning format through every teacher’s web site. Please don’t hesitate to email any teacher or staff member regarding any issue – logins, downloading, instructions on assignments, ANYTHING that will help you and your student work through our New Normal and thrive in the instruction that I know teachers are planning and executing for all of our students right now. Please stay safe and stay connected with Horizon Academy, but most of all, stay safe and healthy and take care of each other. Only together will we be able to get through this terrible time in all of our lives!


    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!
