It is in the Socorro Independent School District.When it was built, it was a self-contained Kinder through 8th Grade with a student population of 400. Horizon Heights is now a Pre-Kinder through 5th Grade School that serves over 900 students. Horizon Heights is a year round school in the Socorro Independent School District. One of the many benefits of year-round education is the short breaks, called intersessions. During this intersession time, students are given the opportunity to attend extended learning classes.
