Open Quote I went to Horizon Elementary School as a child in the 90's and now my daughter is attending this school. I also attending Pinetree at one point and have visited several other Kent Schools and I think Horizon in the best in Kent!! Kent schools in general are subpar. But Horizon has great leadership, encourages school pride and sets the bar high for the kids to reach. They also have a very positive message towards behavior control rather than a negative punishment system. We are renting at the moment and continue to look for real-estate in this school boundary just so we can continue to be apart of this schools community! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
