Welcome to the Dr. William H. Horton Elementary School website. It is our pleasure to share events happening at our school with all stakeholders who are helping to make a difference in the lives of approximately 850 students who are under our care. The information and activities found on our website are intended to serve as a tool for parents, students, teachers, and community members to gain greater insight into the wealth of programs being offered at our school. We also view this site as a vehicle to establish stronger communication among the school, home and community-at-large.

The Dr. William H. Horton family is working to identify and overcome areas of academic need, while continuing to support areas of academic strength. We feel that it is vital that we encourage respect for the individuality of each child. Every child has gifts and talents that must be explored and nurtured so that each child feels like a valued member of our school community. It is through collaboration and commitment that much can be accomplished. We believe in every student we teach, and we fully understand that students, staff, and community members encounter opportunities for learning everyday.

At Dr. Horton, we give hope to all who enter our doors and ignite dreams for future leaders.
