About Our School
HAW is committed to providing a vigorous learning environment where all students will be challenged and encouraged to reach their potential. We are a free, public charter school serving Pre-K through Fifth Grade students in Albuquerque, NM.
Our Learning Model
Horizon Academy West is currently participating in a remote learning model following the guidelines from the NM PED and Department of Health. Students are assigned to a teacher in a virtual classroom away from school campus and learning through online classrooms and resources along with curriculum materials distributed to families. The school continues to work at meeting all guidelines to reopen in a hybrid model in the future while maintaining a safe and secure environment for our students, staff, and community.
Trusted by Our Community
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
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!
