STUDENT SECTION
  • Order your transcript this month to be sent to the college you will be attending. Go to Parchment.com to order the transcript. Be sure to choose the "Hold for Grades" button so the transcript will be sent after your final grades are posted in June. (You will not need to order your transcript through Parchment if Common Application, Send Edu or Coalition was used with your college application -- those transcripts will be automatically sent upon graduation)
  • South Mountain transcripts can be ordered through the student login portal at my.maricopa.edu. The final grades won't be posted until the week of July 14th. You can download an unofficial copy to make sure the final grades are on your transcript before paying to have them sent to your intended college.
  • If you did not submit a copy of your community service hours the deadline has been extended to Monday, May 24th. This is the only extension that will be given. Forms will not be accepted after the cut off date. You can submit a copy or take a picture of your service log and email it to Mrs.Collins at Erin.Collins@horizonhonors.org. Be sure to tally your total hours and write the grade level to apply the hours to at the top of the page.

UPDATE POLICY AS OF 4/28/21 --

Use of face coverings for STUDENTS and STAFF will be optional during the following activities:
  • Outdoor Physical Education classes

  • Outdoor lunch breaks (beyond when students are not eating)

Use of face coverings for STAFF will be optional during the following activities:

Please note that face coverings are still required for all community members during pick up, drop off, and during class transition times when students may be walking outside. Also, face coverings will continue to be required inside campus buildings until further notice.

  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the wide of the face and under the chin.
  • Remain affixed in place without the use of one’s hands.
  • Not have holes except for band-style masks when actively playing an instrument.
