Wow this school gets 5 stars all the way...I was a student here, class of 2002. I miss everything about this school, it's staff and my old friends. Back then we had tracks, I was A track so I had certain teachers. My teachers were the best even though I didn't get along with them sometimes I just really loved them overall, I wanna take a moment and recognize my teachers in that school for the great work they did with me, I know most of them do not work there anymore but when I was there they made my school experience much better . mrs Lilly , mrs karine armen, mr jenks, mrs eleyjian, mrs beshlian, mrs whitehead/mrs dingo, one of my most kickbutt half teachers for language arts exchange mrs welch, and my 3rd grade teachers name I'm embarassed to say I forgot her name but she was awesome. I also remember some other staff members that were so awesome that ill never forget like Raul the custodian who gave us rides on his dolly every once in a whole and mrs anuoush from the office staff she was really nice. Overall this school made my childhood so perfect I loved it there were bad days but now more than 10 years later I look back and I remember what missed and wish I was back there.
Best school, amazing principal, wonderful teachers. My daughter and family love Horace Mann Elementary school. I wish it has 6th grade in it.
I had my daughter moved from this school because my daughter had so much potential to be challenged and seemed that the class was moving really slow in language arts and mathematic was great but they couldn't challenge her because some kids were slow in learning and wasn't able to catch up with some students that have accelerated in their learning progression.
I forgot to mention my daughter had a teacher in 2nd grade that was absent half of the year and you really have a hard time to have the principle involved, my daughter has been going to this school since Kinder and I have seen the principle in the school spirt or activities maybe twice out of my daughters whole life in school.
I have a daughter that attends this school since Kinder. She is in 3rd grade now and has had great teachers. She has always made the honor roll and has received all kinds of awards. The Teachers, Principal and staff are very involved with the students and parents. They motivate the students to do their best at all times. They keep you informed of everything going on. I love that my daughter goes to this school.
The Principal of this school is determined to give all students the opportunity to go to college. Her focus is that all students do their best every minute of the day and that all staff does their best too. This is a public school with a private school service.
Hello I love Horace Mann Elementary School it s the best school my two kids are going to that school and I'm very happy.
Its a very great school with high rating of teachers.Principal is very high level, very welcome and very responsible person.My older son is there and i took my younger to that school as well. Teachers are very developed, organized and very friendly as with students as with parents.I will rate 10 out of 10 for sure.
The staff is so great my children love them! They have an extremly well rounded curriculum my children have been given the edge they need because of Horace Mann.
I along with my two children attended Mann. Most teachers love their profession and the current principal is very enthusiastic about helping children do their best. All in all, I have been very satisfied with this school. Academics is the main focus. Music offered and now their is even an after school sports program for those wanting to attend.
Good public school. All of our four children went to Horace Mann and the results are not dissatisfying at all. The teachers (most of them, anyway) are committed and knowledgeable. Music program definitely prepared our older children for middle school band and orchestra. No competitive sports activities.
Academics are OK. Some children obviously slower than others due to language problem. Music class available.
The program in the school is genreally fair. I feel as a parent that more homework is needed as I don't see my child being challenged academically. They have music class which is really good for the children. There are also some extra after school activities that help supplement the children develop social skills (more needed). I feel that the school needs to improve the frequency in performing tests to classify and determine the student's improvement to provide them with better challenges. A big factor in the slower rise in API would be the cultural background of the student population which are mostly Armenian and Hispanic. As English is usually their second language at home and in a lot of cases, the parents are not fluent in English. I personally feel that there is a lot of room for improvement for this school and would not recommend it in general.
