New Horizons Country Day School

  • 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.
