Students who excel in all academic areas and who achieve above and beyond the levels of their peers are candidates for Unlimited Horizons. Unlimited Horizons students have self-motivation, leadership ability, and the potential for exceptional intellectual and creative output. Each class in the â€œUnlimited Horizons Programâ€ follows an accelerated-pathways, honors-prep program which involves the students in curriculum work advanced by one year.
Kindergartners, for example, follow a strong 1st grade curriculum. Sixth graders are better prepared to go into 7th Grade Honors classes at the junior high school. This program is not designed for every child. Strong parental involvement is a crucial requirement of the program. Some of the special features of the "Unlimited Horizons Program" include a class size of no more than 20 students; an emphasis on higher-order, critical-thinking skills and problem solving; the opportunity to work with a curriculum a grade level above; and teachers trained in strategies to reach, motivate and challenge the abilities of accelerated students.
