Dear Neighbor, I am writing to share with you information about a great school located near you. A few months ago I enrolled my Child into Horizon Science Academy located in Cleveland Ohio on Columbus Road. I believe that I may have found the best school for my Child. The curriculum focuses on Science, technology, math, and foreign language such as Spanish and Turkish. Horizon Science Academy has a wonderful design as well as a good system within the establishment. The Teachers are polite, smart, and dutiful. I have spent some time inside of my Childs classroom and her Kindergarten room is designed brilliantly for a Childs education. The classroom has so much space and there are many books to read. The Teachers use new technology that not all schools have available to the students. As I have explored the halls I noticed that the Principle, Vice Principle, and Teachers all pay close attention and give the Children the practical attention and directions needed for the real world. Horizon Science academy offers Kindergarten classes up to fifth grade. The classes are small and not overcrowded. All of the Children smile as they come and go from school it is proof of the positive energy I have witnessed. When I ask my Child what she learns she has an endless conversation all the way home. The location is convenient and Horizon Science academy has competitive prices for parents of all types. All of the materials as well as the uniform are affordable and simple enough to keep the Children more involved with learning and real world preparation. The Gym is large and the school offers basketball as well as tutoring and before and after day care for hard working Parents. Horizon Science Academy has offered many activities thus far such as book fairs, animal shows, and I am ecstatic as to what comes next. Not only has this school changed my idea of a Cleveland Schools but has also raised my hopes for my Childs future as a student. You’re Neighbor, Jacinda Cangemi

Dear Neighbor, I want to tell you about the school I found for my son, it is a great place and I know God is there. Last year my son was in a public school and it was terrible for him. Everyday he would come home crying that he hated school, he would not want to get out of bed in the morning to go. Over the summer I heard about Horizon Science Academy Denison Elementary and decided to give it a try. The difference has been unbelievable. My son likes going to school and his behavior has changed so much. I kept all of the notes I got from his kindergarten and first grade teacher, there were notes everyday about how bad his behavior was. I cry to think about how hard the past two years were for our family. I was so stressed I could not even have a job. My anxiety was so high, I would have to go into the school with him everyday and spend time in the classroom praying with him so he would stay. After a little bit the teachers at the last school told me I could not come into the classroom anymore, it broke my heart. My son had such a terrible time at that school, I was thinking that maybe my only choice would be to homeschool him. I talked with my husband and we both agreed that we did not want that for our son. He needs to be around other kids and he needs to learn to follow directions from adults besides us. This year, in Miss Sawicki’s classroom, he is like a new boy. He has made friends- his behavior and grades are going so much better. I thank God everyday that we found this school, Horizon Science Academy, and that my son is a happy and joyful child for the first time in his school career. Sincerely, Liz Colon

Dear Neighbor, My children were in Cleveland Public Schools for three years. At the first school there were boys who continuously hit and picked on my son. I told the principal and nothing was done about it. I heard a teacher tell a student to shut up because she was “just a crackhead anyway.” I was offended by this and told the teacher he was an adult and he was speaking to a child. He said “I was only playing and she knows she’s a crackhead.” I searched for a school to change my kids to and I found another Cleveland Public School and enrolled the children in this school. In this second school the issues only grew worse. My son was afraid to go to school due to a child bullying him. Two boys were holding him down and a third was hitting and kicking him. I went to the principal three times in that year and nothing was being done. I finally told them that if someone touched my son again I was going to call the cops. They finally switched the boy who was a bully to a different class, but this was 3 weeks before school was over. My son went from loving school and getting straight a’s and b’s to getting c’s and hating school. I knew that I had to make a change for him. I searched other schools and I knew that the Cleveland Public Schools were not the answer. I found Horizon Science Acadamy and talked to many different people about what they thought of this school. The answer was always the same- the school is very successful with teaching our children and they genuinely seem to care about the welfare of how they grow. I enrolled them and since coming to this school the children have changed to genuinely love to come to school. They are eager to learn and have done so much better than at previous school. I would recommend Horizon Science Academy to anyone who cares about their childrens’ education. I would like my children to stay in this school until they graduate. I think that their education is important and so does Horizon Science Academy Denison Elementary. With all the cuts that Cleveland Public School system is doing and all the impressions those teachers are leaving on our children it is refreshing to see a teacher actually be happy that you call to check on your child and are eager to give you feed back on how to help them learn better. You should send your child to this school too. Sincerely, Charlotte Goodgame

I am parent to a child who attends this school. It is by far the best school I have ever had the pleasure of having a child attend. I am very pleased with the curriculum they use and the way they treat and handle the children and situations. They are very caring and compassionate at the same time very focused on our children and their future in education. I couldn’t have asked for a better school for my child to attend. Thank you for your time in reading this. I look forward to future events and years to come with this school.

I am really impressed with Horizon. I always wanted my children to have quality education and to be in a class that wasn’t overcrowded and where they could get the assistance they needed, when needed. I really like that I can keep up with my child’s grade online from home and am aware of all assignments, tests, and any discipline problems that he may have. I have told a lot of my friends about Horizon in hopes that they will give their child a chance at a quality education.

I feel that HSADE is a great school and have a lot of wonderful programs and has been very beneficial to my son and it means a lot to see that this school takes so much pride in children and give them better opportunities then the public school system they are very organized and i would recommend others to attend they work with you and your schedule I haven’t had any problems and they make to where u can see that your kids can make progress and grow I’m glad that they are making sure that kids get to enjoy sports and are really benefiting from the exercise that they provide and the other activities if anything i think they should probably add a music program to.

This school has small class sizes that allow more one on one time for the students and the teachers. I appreciate the feed back that I get from all of the teachers and the staff. They also provide after school activities four days a week that help cater to the favorite subjects for the kids. I really appreciate this school and will re-enroll soon.

My son is a kindergarten student at HSADE. We enrolled him in the middle of the school year after being extremely dissatisfied with the public school that he was attending. HSADE has made a world of difference in the way that my son is learning and even his attitude about school in general. It is truly a tight-knit community of involved parents and teachers as well as a fantastic and caring principal and vice principal. We are incredibly happy with the choice we have made!

My daughter is in her first year here. I enjoy the special attention the staff gives the students and the parents. She enjoys her teachers and is happy to attend school. The one thing I wish there was more of is a celebration of holidays. MLK day was observed not celebrated. The kids were off but may not have known why. Also I didn’t see anything for President’s day or Black History month.
