However, with the right support and resources, it can be a smooth and fulfilling experience. The Horizons School is dedicated to helping its students successfully make this transition, empowering them to lead fulfilling and independent lives.

Our team of experienced educators works closely with each student to develop an individualized plan that addresses their unique needs and goals. This includes providing support with finding employment, housing, and community resources.
