I was a student of horace mann middke school. I was class of 2008...my best years was spent at that school. I wouldnt conceder the school as bad but the students sure have a way of expressing their feelings. The teachers are pretty cool and outgoing well the ones that i had. The only thing i really didnt like was that the principle treating everybody the same as little criminals. I was one of the good students but i got in trouble my first day cause i went to the wrong period.they're is a lot of discipline at that school. but you should try it out for yourself because everyone have a different experience and a different point of view.

I attended and graduated from Horace Mann. I will admit that Horace Mann is not the greatest schools around but it is not bad. Some people believe that no one that comes out of this school can achieve any thing, and I would like to say that they are 100% wrong. If a person wants to be something they have to strive to do their best. If you attend Horace Mann, do not believe that the teachers or administrators are going to do everything for you. You as a student have to work to get to where you want to be in the future. Believe me i know people that go to UC Berkeley, UC Riverside, UCLA, MIT, UC Santa Barbara and many more universities and they all came from Horace Mann. I even go to UCLA so keep the hope.

I am currently attending this school and would not recommend any parent send their child here. The students have poor behavior and disrupt the class any chance they get. Dispite it's horrible students, most of the techers are really great (ex. Mr.Amelio).

I am currently a student at horace mann in my thirdyear, class of 08. There are only a few teachers like Mr. Jenkins Mr. Amelio and Mrs. Millet that actually have a small sense of hope for the student there. Most (not all) the student see a school day at this particular school as a fun reckless 'whatever' day. The teacher have to teach student what is exactly goignt to be on a test and they pretty much set out all the answers for them, but because of the lack of respect for themselves and dicipline the kids really dont care. Horace Mann is a under achieving school at the moment who has AnY thing else in their mind but to learn. But then again there are those handful of students who attend the school that dont want to be the average judged and stereotyped kid. HMMS needs HELP

i am part of the graduating class of 2007. I do not recommend this school for any child. In most classes it was a constant struggle everyday for a teacher to gain control and respect of the kids. I was given alot of book work in 6th grade and we never did any hands on project. We never had the option of electives so i had to work as a service student for two years and i feel that we were not graded fairly most of the time. It all depended on how well you got along with the secretaries. I must admit that Horace Mann will always be the best three years of my life, but not because of the education but because of how much i had free time. I was stuck with bad teachers and im afraid that i will be behind in highschool.

As a former honor student of Horace Mann, I understand the varied views of the school's overall character. The atmosphere (to an outsider looking in) may seem intimidating, but as a student I found it rewarding. The challenges I faced at Mann prepared me for high school and the future. Yes, the teachers may be lazy at times and the students may be unruly, but where can you find a middle school (or any school for that matter) where that isn't the case? I appreciate the time and care I received at Mann and I appreciate the extra push I received from such teachers as Mr. Amelio and Ms. Vega.

I was a student at Horace Mann. The teachers were burned out. The children were disrepectful. The measures to insure safety to the students were lacking. I would not recommend sending my child to Horace Mann.

I'm not a parent, but a previous student of Horace Mann and I have to say that I would not trade those three years that I spent there for anything else. I graduated, about 3 years ago, as valedictorian with a 4.0 from this school and I am continuing to do well in High School. The teachers (for lack of a better word) were awesome. There were a few disruptive and out of hand students, but there was nothing wrong with anything else. The problem isn't the teachers, it isn't the principal, it isn't the curriculum, it isn't even the kids. The problem is the ignorance that no one seems to see. The haze over their eyes blocking out the truth that they are the problem. I didn't mean to write a whole speech, but it's the least I could do to show my appreciation for those three years.

Do not send your child to Mann if you can help it. The kids are unruly and direspectful.The teachers don't care and have no control the classrooms. It saddens me to know that I can't even send my kids to their community school. Its not safe. I hope things change for the better on day for Mann.

Overall, Horace Mann Middle School is a place where my child received a good education, just too many distractions among the students and some teachers should have retired or learned new ways of coping with students.

I believe H. Mann is a great school with a bad rap. The teachers, administration & parents care a great deal about the school and the success of the students. The administration & teachers communicated well with parents, and students seemed to be happy and learning. The science fair was very impressive! I would like to see more field trips, music, sports & 1 on 1 tutoring programs. I look forward to seeing higher test scores this year, as they continue to improve every year, just as the school does!

I am a student at Horace Mann Middle School and my personal opinion is that this school is not that bad to start with. I'm about to graduate and this school has given me the best education I could ever have. I am the top student in this class and in this school with a 4.00 as my G.P.A. So this school is very safe, very motivative, and has a very good administration.

horace mann is a horrible school but I must admit that all the percentage of the school is bad take rooms 201 and 203 rooms for gifted the teachers ms. K Harrison and G. Survine have all the kids under control. The children are learning. so those people who see only the pecentage of people that are bad need to look deeper.they need more extracirricular activities to keep kids of the streets.

My Son had a terrible 6th & 7th grade year at Mann. My husband and I were getting calls daily about his behavior. He had the 'When in Rome...' syndrome, meaning, his atmosphere was so chaotic, he found himself acting just like those around him. The students had no respect for their Teachers.They wouldn't even respect the fact that there were visiting parents in the classroom (My Husband & I). Instead, it gave them more reason to show off and disrespect. The children are totally in charge of the classrooms at Mann.
