Welcome to Mount Horeb Intermediate School! Whether you have been a part of the Intermediate Center family for many years, or are new to us, I look forward to working with you throughout the year. Our school is a great place to be for many reasons. We are a neighborhood school with an enrollment of almost 600 students. Despite its size, our school truly creates a close family experience for staff and children, alike. I feel privileged to be a part of such a remarkable school community. Our curriculum is rigorous and challenging and will continue to be so and we are charged with the responsibility of ensuring that each child is prepared for college, career, and the community by the time he/she completes high school. The process begins in elementary school. Our goal is to teach students to read and think critically, solve problems, and communicate effectively orally and in print, and to utilize technology in relevant ways. We will give the children the tools to be thoughtful, responsible citizens who will be ready to take their place in the world.
Our children are given the tools to succeed academically. They also experience their instruction in an environment that promotes academic risk-taking and nurtures a love of learning. In order to be successful, students need support from both home and school. We are committed to working collaboratively with our parents to provide results oriented instruction that focuses on the growth and achievement of each student. We count on our parents to partner with us as we continue our mission to provide a world class education to each child. We encourage our parents to take an active role in the academic growth of the student and also expect that our parents will encourage children to persevere in the face of challenges and never give up.
We want our great school to be a place where the voices of the parents and community are heard. If you have ideas, thoughts, or concerns you’d like to share, we’d love to hear them. You are always welcome to visit the school.
