Welcome from the Head of School

  • Dear Echo Horizon community and prospective families,

     

    Thank you for being part of our special community or for taking the time to explore Echo Horizon School—a magical place with a rich history, strong foundation, and exciting future. Our dynamic, innovative, and caring leadership team and faculty are passionate about teaching. We care deeply for young people and create a phenomenal space where all students' needs are met academically and emotionally. 

     

    We believe in honoring the whole child and allowing children to feel comfortable being their authentic selves. At Echo Horizon, kids can be kids. Students feel safe to take risks, make mistakes, and ultimately respond with resiliency—prepared to dust themselves off, learn, grow, and give it another go. Our families and faculty work in partnership to ensure that children are understood, seen, heard, and supported in reaching their fullest potential.

     

    Our joyful, engaged learning environment includes hands-on learning, play, design thinking, technology integration, and diversity-responsive classrooms. Our Maker and STEAM spaces, Visual and Performing Arts studios, Technology Center, library, outdoor playgrounds, and diverse field trips and retreats extend experiential learning well beyond the classroom.

     

    As stated in our mission, we believe that a child's education should be both academically rigorous and developmentally appropriate. Becoming people of character—kind, strong, inclusive, and respectful citizens—matters as much as academic success. Our graduates leave Echo Horizon to attend the best middle and high schools in the city, well-prepared to take on any challenge they may encounter and to contribute positively as citizens and scholars. 

     

    While you're here, take a look at my blog for thoughts on education, our wonderful community, and more. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. As well as being the Head of School, I am a proud Echo Horizon parent, so I know first-hand how exceptional our school is. I look forward to sharing that with you! 

     

    Warmly,

     

    Peggy Signature
