Healthy Hearts for Horizons
Culinary FUNdraiser and 25th Anniversary Celebration
For more than 25 years, The Horizons School has been preparing young adults with learning difficulties for an independent life. Our curriculum, with the community as our classroom, provides students with the skills to live and work independently.
The Horizons School is not located in a secluded environment – we consider the city itself our campus. Our students learn to navigate a real-life community in a safe, supervised setting. The school building and residence are located in a quaint downtown neighborhood, which has all the amenities our students need within walking distance. In addition, our location gives our students easy access to the city’s public transportation system, which enables them to access all parts of the city and surrounding suburbs. We feel that using the real world as our classroom gives our students the opportunity to practice independence in the environment they will one day reside.
