Parents interested in Wider Horizons School for their children need to call the office at 352.686.1934 to set up an appointment for a personal interview. This interview includes parents, the child or children, and administrators of WHS.
Wider Horizons School is located in a quiet residential area on five fully fenced and treed acres. There are two classroom buildings joined by a covered walkway.
WHS is dedicated to teaching children the learning skills necessary for success in life including a love of work, the ability to concentrate and self-discipline.
Field trips at Wider Horizons are always educational and generally local. These field trips help students understand certain concepts better and make learning more fun.
WHS celebrates holidays like Constitution Day on September 17 where students memorize parts of the Constitution of the United States to recite with classmates or to other classes.
About Us !
Since 1983 Wider Horizons School has evolved into a college preparatory academic program that believes character development is the basis of a quality education. Self-discipline, responsible actions and respect for self and others are the building blocks of character.
The professional staff at WHS is comprised of dedicated, caring people. They facilitate student’s independent learning, build self-competence, and the willingness to take responsibility for personal choices. All teachers have at least four-year degrees and those working in the Montessori levels have Montessori training. WHS has a low student-teacher ratio that encourages individualized learning. Students
are encouraged to work at their optimal level and master the material. Every student’s program is individualized allowing them to work years ahead of their chronological age or to catch up on areas they are lacking.
