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 and care deeply for young people, creating 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 to be their authentic selves. At Echo Horizon, kids can be kids. Students feel safe to take risks and 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 each child is understood, seen, heard, and supported to reach his/her/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.
I thought it would be helpful to launch a blog in order for you to get to know me better. I'll be updating it throughout the year. You can also click here to read my bio and philosophy statement and to learn more about my dual roles as Echo Horizon Head of School and proud parent.
Should you have any questions about our beautiful school, please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to sharing our magic with each and every one of you.
