I am very impressed with Horizons especially the math. We have been using it for 6 years, however I am very disappointed that it does not continue past 6th grade. I received mixed information on transferring from the Horizons 6th grade to LifePac math.

Based on the article about the features of Horizons I am very much impressed especially in the math part wherein I consider the subject importance in developing and enhancing my children analytical abilities. I wish to transfer from lifepac to Horizons.

I am very impressed with Horizons curriculum. We have used Horizons for 2yrs. now. Our children, ages 7 (1st grade)and 5(preschool),are doing great and love the colorful workbooks and reading materials. The 7yr. old is reading 2nd and 3rd grade level books.He really enjoys reading his reading book and the questions at the end of the stories to me. He amazes me! The 5yr. old is reading Dick and Jane along with Go Pup Go (books from our own collection and the library).

We are getting ready to order for the 2010-2011 year. We really wish the Horizons went further in their curriculum with all of their subjects. We love the math, spelling and vocab. books along with the reading and phonics.It is disappointing that this will be our last year with a full curriculum with Horizons. Next year we'll have to find another reading and phonics curriculum. They are doing so well sounding out words that you wouldn't think a 1st gr. or a preschooler would know but they do.

Please consider adding onto your curriculum so parents and children can go clear through to 12th grade with Horizons. I'm sure we aren't the only parents who feel this way.

Thank you!

I agree. We would love to continue Horizons through 12th grade. My daughter started the kindergarten curriculum at 4 1/2 and is flying through the Math and Reading/Phonics. I'm sad that we have to find another curriculum for all the other subjects and for math after 6th grade.
