We love this school. Much smaller than most schools in Salem and a very friendly and respectful atmosphere throughout the school. A strong, dedicated teaching staff. The academics are strong; my son is reading two grades above his grade level.
This is a wonderful school where the principal knows the name of every child, the teachers go over and above to nurture each child individually and the children learn a sense of pride in their community.
Horace Mann is is a great location, perfect spot for students of all neighborhoods. Also, Horace Mann has great teachers, staff and a great learning Program. Anything that goes on parents are aware of and there are many learning oppurtunities that are offered at Horace Mann Laboratory.
The teachers are phenomonal, and there's just such a warm, welcoming atmosphere to the school. It's been around for over a hundred years, with the focus on the most innovative teaching techniques. This school truly deserves to be named for the father of education.
What lies within the walls of Horace Mann Lab school is nothing short of incredible, the teachers and staff are the guts and the Awesomeness of HMLS. It's not about how a school looks in appearance it is about what lies within it. I am proud to send my children there. I love Horace Mann Lab school.
