8-12 week gains come from exceptional instruction in small classes (with a 5:1 student-teacher ratio), and from Horizons National’s signature Leveraged Learning Initiative. As part of this program, teachers are trained on student assessments, and provided with the support of a Reading Specialist to determine the best way to help each student. Reading Specialists evaluate students, provide high-quality individualized and small-group instruction, and help teachers implement differentiated classroom instruction. Horizons high school students boast a 97% graduation rate (compared to a 50% graduation rate among their peers), and, of these Horizons graduates, 91% go on to college or some form of post-secondary training.
