“Our experience with New Horizon School can only be described as a truly miraculous answer to a prayer.
“Our son, at age 17, was slowly but surely falling further behind every day, despite the beautiful, new, modern high school campus he attended. The faculty and administration seemed content, even willing, to allow him to fall through the cracks into abject failure.
“Contact with his teachers and guidance counselor proved fruitless. Our frequent pleas for testing were answered with refusals and excuses ranging from caseload to finances to limited time and staffing. Our boy’s attitude, confidence, and self esteem were being systematically destroyed, and the effects on our relationships and family life were truly heart wrenching.
“Out of frustration and desperation, we took him to New Horizon School for evaluation. Their tests revealed that he was far above average in intelligence, but suffered from a learning disability which adversely affected his ability to process information and convert it between written, spoken, and conceptual thought.
“The director of New Horizon accompanied us to a meeting with the administration of the high school and the hierarchy of the board of education, where we stated our case and insisted on their support to remedy the situation. As a result, the Board of Education paid our tuition at New Horizon, our boy flourished under their expert instruction, and he graduated from high school on time.
“He is a different young man now, self-confident and unfazed by the challenges of rigorous education. He completed the advanced electronic training program in the U.S. Air Force, and is now serving our country, maintaining the sophisticated navigational and guidance systems in some very complicated aircraft.
“His future is bright! Thank you New Horizon!"
