Kings County events July 17

Published on July 16, 2014

At the end of the 2013-2014 school year, Horton High School graduated the first-ever students from its International Baccalaureate program. The 19 students spent the last two years in an accelerated, specialized program of study and in the process, earned an IB diploma. All 19 students, who wrote their final exams in May and received their diplomas along with the rest of the Horton graduates, are shown following a recognition evening at the school in early June. - John DeCoste,
