Not only Home
“Horizon is not only home to my family but Horizon means home to my family.
In 2010 we moved here from Ohio not knowing a soul. And since then, Horizon has become our Oregon family. We have made friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime.
I say this because since the meet and greet at the middle school, everyone here, administrators, teachers, parents and students have treated my family and I like they have known us forever.
Carol Peterson was my “mentor” mom and that has made all the difference. If you know Carol and or the Peterson’s you know what I mean. She introduced us to her family and her friends and that first impression has lasted 8 years. Her genuine interest and friendliness was exemplified in the entire Horizon community.
The first thing I was told upon arriving on campus was “Welcome to Oregon, you’re going to love it here.”
The rest is history. I so much enjoyed the people and environment here that I decided to help out and work here as a study hall monitor. Getting to know the students and staff has been more rewarding than I could have imagined. The way the staff cares for each and every student is truly a gift.
We are blessed to be a part of such a caring & supportive community.”
