Campus Goals

Horne Elementary provides appropriately challenging learning experiences for all students. Emphasis is placed on developing problem-solving, critical, and creative thinking skills. Citizenship and self-responsibility are key objectives in the social / emotional development of our students. Parents, as partners in their child’s education, are vital for our continued success.
