Mike first started at Horizon School in 2010, starting in our preschool program. In that time he has come a long way. We asked his current teacher Ms. Marie about him and she had this to say, “When Mike first started with us he had a lot of difficulty with the demands of school like sitting for structured activities, focusing on tasks, following directions, and interacting with peers. Mike is now in a Primary level class and has shown great improvements in all areas. Mike now loves to sit and work at the table and he is often the star of the group! Mike is now able to write his name and he is working on literacy, language, and number skills. He has made a lot of friends at school and enjoys helping them complete their work!”
In December, The Harlem Wizards visited the Horizon High School. The Wizards presented two interactive basketball shows with our students. Afterwards Horizon High School’s basketball team, The Huskies, got a chance to shoot some shots and learn some new tricks with the Wizards. It was an awesome presentation and everyone involved had a really great time!
