New Horizons Country Day School, through a balanced program, strives to develop effective communicators, self-directed learners, complex thinkers, quality producers, collaborative workers and community contributors.
We do this by offering a warm, safe and familiar environment which promotes risk taking, exploration and experimentation.
In support of a holistic philosophy, we used a balanced literature-based interdisciplinary program where learning is kept whole, purposeful, social and meaningful.
Education concerns the growth of the whole person.
Cognitive, affective and psychomotor growth are all interrelated and each plays a vital role in the learning experiences of children.
