Elementary Education Program

New Horizon School proudly serves students in Grades 4-6 in our elementary program.  Students are placed in skill-based classes using Direct Instruction in the morning and peer grouped based classes in the afternoon, along with hands-on projects and field trips.

All elementary students have full participation in physical education and music programs.  As an added benefit, our elementary students participate in elective courses on a rotating basis, such as Dance Team, Drama Workshop, and Performance Lab.  Elementary students learn about leadership and represent their homeroom at the Associated Student Body meetings.
