Founded in 1996

Mission Statement: New Horizon School for the Performing Arts. We are an Elementary Kindergarten-6th Grade Public Charter School with a private school quality and no tuition. We will teach the core content areas of education and the performing arts in a safe, healthy, nurturing and drug-free environment. We strive to bring our students professional, high-quality performing arts instruction in the areas of voice, orchestra strings, drama, musical theatre and dance. We provide experiences that stimulate growth of the students so that they may lead lives that are personally fulfilling and that contribute to, and improve, the society in which they live.  We maintain an inclusive environment, which acknowledges and respects children from diverse family and cultural backgrounds. We are incorporated.  We are sponsored by the Arizona State Board of Charter Schools.

First-Rate Curriculum

Are you a beginner, expert, or somewhere in between? Not to worry! We offer a variety of high-quality courses designed to prepare you for your next step. We offer placement tests to help match you to your skill level in your education at our Charter School, Elementary School



The best reading support you can give your child is to read daily AND nightly. A suggested 20 minutes a day is great, more is even better.

GENERAL INFORMATION:     Many charter schools “rent” space in a facility. New Horizon is in complete ownership of the facility. The professional lighting and sound in the dance room (cultural hall) are quite extraordinary. The basket ball court outside is also a volleyball court. The park across the street (north) gives students room to stretch their legs and enjoy the outdoors at recess and at lunch time. Hot lunches are also part of the New Horizon School program. New Horizon is a certified "PUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL" sponsored by the Arizona Charter Board. The school was started in the Fall of 1996.

 Our Vision and Core Beliefs:

Provide student-centered educational programs that challenge all students to perform at highest potential.

Prepare and motivate students for a rapidly changing world by instilling a respect for core values of honesty, loyalty, tolerance, and compassion.


School Motto:  We pursue excellence in attendance, performance, respect, grooming, costume and integrity.

High-Speed Internet, 30 Station Computer Lab, Professional Lighting & Sound.  Computers in Every Classroom and much more.
