School Notes

  • Horizon Christian School has a current student body of nearly 200 students, Pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.  Our school serves communities from throughout the Columbia Gorge and is regionally accredited by AdvanceEd. Academic excellence at Horizon is characterized by small class sizes, low teacher-student rations, and individualized attention to help students achieve their goals.  Horizon teachers and staff are committed to creating a caring and safe learning environment.  We believe that relationships are key to that goal, so whether it`s teacher to student, student to student, or teacher to parent, positive relationships are stressed.  Students participate in a full range of classes and activities. The challenging academic program includes Advanced Placement classes, field trips, retreats, mentoring, fine arts, service projects, and extracurricular activities all of which provide a rounded and rich curriculum.  The Hawks soccer, volleyball, basketball, track & field, and golf teams are frequent contenders for division titles at the 1A-OSAA level.
