Ahwatukee’s Horizon Honors School Named Anti-Bullying School
Ahwatukee’s Horizon Honors Elementary School has been recognized as a “No Place for Hate” school by the Anti-Defamation League.
According to Ahwatukee Foothills News, the designation is given to a few select schools that meet the requirements of encouraging the inclusion of all students. To receive the designation the school had to form a coalition, adopt a resolution, and implement a number of projects promoting respect for differences–many of which the school had been doing for years, the newspaper said.
“It’s bigger than No Place For Hate for us,” Principal Laura Wanstreet told Ahwatukee Foothils News. “It’s really about our values and our beliefs and our community, so the program fits well for us.”
