“New Horizons New Directions helped me out so much. I came to this school without a strong understanding of social studies and math. I am now leaving with a much better understanding and a High School Diploma. It really can’t get much better than that. I finished high school in May without a diploma because I failed to pass my State exam. I didn’t know how I would get my diploma until several of my friends told me about New Horizons New Directions. They all gave me great reviews on the school and I can truly say I am happy that I came to New Horizons New Directions, this school was truly a blessing for me. They also have an excellent staff willing to help give students a better understanding in the subjects that are not their strong points.”
