Horizon Middle School is in its fifth year as an International Baccalaureate school. The goal of IB is to promote academic rigor and to teach students to look at the global perspective and to evaluate and communicate effectively. The program is centered on eight core subject groups that are related to the five areas of Interaction. Educators are committed to the rigor and quality offered through the IB program that will result in a well-rounded education for every student.

Students may receive additional literacy and math support through intervention classes and after-school programs designed to support academic needs. The school also offers study hall time during the day and after-school study hall for students needing additional time and assistance.
