Horizon Middle School


In January 2001, the students and staff at Hughes Middle School moved north to a new building named Horizon Middle School. The name of the new school was submitted by Robert Schaible. Immediately after the move, contractors began working on the Hughes building to turn it into school district administrative space, as well as a home for the Adult Learning Center and South Central High School. The School Board renamed the building Hughes Educational Center.

As of 2014 Horizon had about 900 students and 120 full time and part time staff.


Horizon is thankful for their volunteers that help make a difference for their student’s each and every school day.  Please contact Horizon’s secretary at 701-323-4550 to find out more ways that you can become involved today!

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 School Re-entry plan, access within the building may be limited. 



Partner with the BPS District to empower every learner to thrive by enhancing the services and recognition of students and staff.
