New Horizons has a challenging academic program. High school students all experience the same course of study. Their fully bilingual English and Spanish programs include language arts, literature, history, geography, economics, French as a third language, science, arts and music, as well as advanced placement courses in mathematics and computing. At the end of their sophomore year in high school, students may choose between a General Studies or Technical Computer program. This will determine the courses they will take during their junior and senior years. The former is designed for those who show interest in social studies, literature, and arts. The latter is intended for those who have a special interest in engineering and computer science. In either of these programs, students may complete their grade, upon passing the required evaluations, as Certified Technicians by Microsoft, which enhances their marketability during and after college.
The curriculum is well balanced between the classes offered in English and those offered in Spanish. In each case, teachers evaluate their students periodically in the language of instruction. Furthermore, they are also expected to pass standardized examinations in language arts and math in both languages. Students that complete their schooling in our program will be able to fluently communicate in written and oral form in two languages; Spanish and English. French is taught as a foreign language from grades five to twelve. The weekly class schedule for each grade level includes two or three hours of French instruction. In this manner, students progress through eight levels of French. A special effort is placed on hiring highly qualified instructors who have at least a native proficiency in each language.
