The Horbelt School works to identify and support students with learning needs. Struggling learners are provided with interventions first at the classroom level, and then given interventions of increasing intensity to ensure student success.  Interventions are provided by general education teachers, special education educators and district specialists. An ESL teacher is also on staff to service ELL students. This year to further that support, RLHS has been strongly supported with online programs to help bolster students struggling in the areas of math and language arts. As part of this support, our school has been provided multiple resources to address student needs at the ground level. We also continue to provide multiple after school activities to provide our students with the opportunity to experience different kinds of learning. We proudly continue to offer students the opportunity for be involved in a play which will be presented at the end of the year

The Horbelt School has worked sedulously in the area of promoting literacy, and is proud to share its literacy themes. The entire school is yearly challenged to read thousands of books. Each child is awarded a certificate of achievement that can be redeemed at a local restaurant for ice cream sundaes. This is a home-school community cooperative relationship. In addition, we have aligned our writing program to the standards and made sure that each teacher, and each child in each grade is speaking the same writing language. Our school wide theme is One Small Thing Can Make A Difference. We are learning how to be kind to others as we live in community. Students are caught being “good” as “making a difference” and as we expect, practice, and enforce consistent behaviors, it creates a learning environment that is safe and predictable for the students. Students love coming to the Robert L Horbelt Elementary School.
