At Echo Horizon, we prioritize the elementary school experience by creating a safe, inclusive community where children don’t have to grow up too quickly. With 180 students in grades Pre-K–6, our intentionally small community allows us to get to know one another beyond the surface. Echo’s diverse scholars come from 49 different zip codes within Los Angeles County and approximately 50 percent of our students identify as people of color.
Children thrive in our kind, connected community, one where they are free to explore, question, and imagine. Fifteen percent of our students are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH). Our DHH students use hearing technology and grow up alongside their hearing peers. The advantage of this unique educational model to both hearing and non-hearing students is invaluable: children develop empathy, an appreciation of difference, and essential communication skills.
Above all, education at Echo Horizon is joyful: our students go out into the world with exuberance, confidence, and resilience. Echo’s graduates go on to the top secondary schools in Los Angeles and our alumni are changemakers, scientists, athletes, and artists. Our purpose is to empower children with the empathy, intellectual curiosity, resourcefulness, and courage they need to change the world for future generations.
