I absolutely love Horace Mann. There has been many of my family generations to promote from this school and get a education that is deserved. I love the Teachers. Ms. Manning, Ms. Haynes, and the Principles and vice principle Ms. Lim and Ms. Shennan
Far out! Horace Mann students have met all No Child Left Behind requirements for all sub-groups for the last two years. And, 75% of the students are proficient or advanced in math! The sky's the limit with the great faculty and programs at Horace Mann.
I really like this school, there is good energy going on here. Children are learning, and parents are welcomed to be apart.
We are neighbors of the school and we volunteer to help take care of it. We have had the pleasure to work with the teachers and the Vice Principal Patty who volunteer on weekends to come to the school and do community activites with the school children and their families. They are very nice people and the kids love them. The grow their own 'salad bowl' vegetables in the kiindegarten area, so the kids have hands on expeirence with gardening and then eating the vegetables. It's a great school that just recently had a $6 million dollar upgrade so it looks great!
I have been at Horace Mann for three years and I am proud to be a part of the Horace Mann group. Our school has changed greatly do to the help and hardwork of everyone in the neighborhood and the staff and faculty. We have increased our test scores because of the teacher's dedication to their students and because of the student's hardwork and effort. This year we have a great after school program where the students learn how to utilize computer systems and to use art as a way to express themselves. We are a school that is setting goals and achieving them one step at a time. And we will continue to work hard and acheive those goals. Horace Mann is the school to be at.
Horace Mann has really changed. After 10 years the modernization finally happened, and the school is transformed. The neighborhood really came together to help and it's' become a beautiful school with bright colors and lovely gardens. The new teachers (after NCLB restructuring in 2005/06) are young and energetic. Teachers still face the reality of having failing and/or troubled students transfered into their classrooms through the school year (neighborhood support would help stabilize school), but put 150% into teaching and students who do their work succeed. Lots of programs here to try to help failing students, and I've seen those with support from home really turn it around. The school could use a lot more parent involvement. Teachers do wonderful programs on diversity etc and there's a great new art teacher.
Good programs. kids enjoy going to this school very much. teachers that care about their students.
This school needs serious improvement. The community is actively trying to help. We have planted trees and cleaned up, but there is a lot more that is required. Few of the neighborhood children actually attend. Those who do tend to have less resources.
Most of the good teachers left, the yard has buildings on it. Just a mess of a school
This is an interesting school because the demographics of the surrounding area has changed drastically in the past 6 years. There are many more solidly middle class families who are college educated. However, the majority of these folks fail to enroll their students in this local public school. Were these children to enroll in Melrose elementary, there would likely be a vast change in the test scores of this school.
School is troubled. Overcrowding a concern. Intermitten construction on the school ground. Staff turnover a major concern.
