The Facility

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.

There is a large playing field, a smaller field for games, a volleyball court, a playground with physical fitness challenge equipment and a climbing gym. There is a Gaga pit and a basketball, tennis court for the older students. Also, there is a map of the United States painted on one corner of the parking lot for geography games.

Younger students have their own playground with covered play spaces and climbing chalet with slide. They have access to a large play area for games.

The buildings surround a beautiful garden with trees, shrubs, herbs, and flowers. The lower elementary classes are in charge of keeping the garden looking good. Around the garden are large picnic tables for snack time and eating lunch. In sunny Florida, lunch can be eaten outside nearly every day.

There are two large gazeboes used by different classes who want to be outdoors for awhile.
Even in winter, it is usually warm enough to use the gazebos. The gazebos have had
an added feature of a small resident owl living inside for the past few years.

The parking lot leads directly to the front office for security. The entire property is surrounded by a chain-linked fence and is closed with a large gate.
