Echo Horizon School

Type: Elementary School, Private Elementary School


Echo Horizon is a visionary independent school fostering a joyful and engaged learning community. The school’s commitment to diversity is rooted in its Echo Center­, where 15 percent of students are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH). Offering a co-enrollment program, DHH students learn alongside their hearing peers using hearing aids and cochlear implant technology. A dynamic curriculum combines the best of both worlds: strong academic practices and a supportive, student-centered learning environment. The school’s commitment to JEDI work (Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) means that the multifaceted experiences individuals bring to the community are celebrated with the belief that embracing diversity leads to social/emotional and academic excellence. This pursuit prepares scholars for matriculation to top independent schools and graduates healthy empathetic leaders who positively impact the world.
