I really love this school my daughter has learned so much in so many ways from education to being considerate, respectful and knowing how to take accountability for her actions. I love this school and their teachers
Student Parent
Our daughters have attended HAW throughout their preschool and elementary years. Our experience with HAW staff has been very positive and they (teachers and staff) truly have our kids' best interests at heart. In addition, our daughters have thrived academically and are performing above their grade levels in reading, writing and math. We were thrilled when our oldest transitioned to middle school with above-average academic performance across all academic areas. Socially, the school holds many family functions that brings our community together. Love, Love, Love Horizon Academy West!
