We extend a welcome to all students and parents who make up the Horton School Community. Our school is rich in achievement and tradition. Since the first Horton public school opened its doors in 1959, it has had a reputation for high academic standards and outstanding achievement in extra-curricular activities. Achievements such as these are the result of cooperation amongst all Horton Community members. Just as this has been the hallmark of our past, we are confident it will be the foundation of our future.
While we are proud of the academic achievements of many of our students, it is within the capability of all students to achieve the Nova Scotia High School Graduation Diploma. Students with learning challenges are able to have their programs adapted to meet their needs. Parents who want to know more about program adaptations should contact Student Services. Horton staff is committed to helping students succeed; putting students first is our priority. We hope that parents, if they have concerns, will feel free to contact the school. Education is a cooperative effort.
