My School "Horace Mann Elementary School" Is a great school.I don't have a clue to why this school wouldn't be rated 5/5*. I go to this school matter a fact and it's been GREAT!!! Through out my life I wanted a school that can keep with my pace of ability.But when my mom & dad singed me up. I wondered "Does this school have what i need?" Then as the years went by,I got older and smarter.In conclusion I love Horace Mann Elementary School. -Sincerely Student Justin Sales

Absolutely a horrible school! The principal has no idea what she is doing! This school allows bullying in every shape and form! If you report the bullying the staff will outcast your child in every way possible! The staff protects themselves and does not protect your child! This school is a disgrace to the Bayonne school sytem. Dont bother reporting issues to the Board of Education, they all stick together in a nut shell! You will just make things worst for your child. Although my child had all high test scores in the 90's along with always completed HW, her report card showed 70's. WHY? I will tell you why, because I reported them numerous times to the board of ed.

This school protects it's teachers not the students. It is a mockery of the public school system and should be shut down for it's lack of concern for how it's students are treated. Look at the horrible test scores this school has produced. 5 out of 10 stars. I believe thats a failing score. Sounds like it's time to clean house.


Posted March 30, 2010

Coming from a larger city, I was expecting so much more at a school with a smaller student to teacher ratio. My child's first year was horrible. I found one teacher in particular, to be completely insensitive to my child's needs. She showed very little concern for both the academic and social well being of my child. While there are some quality and progressive minded teachers, there are a few still living in the 1960's with limited adaptabilty to minority students. Its either they are unaware or simply don't care about the damage they cause by belittling a child. Perhaps some sensitivity training is necessary. There is also a rigidity in the teaching of subjects which is never addressed, especially in the upper grades. What ever happened to allowing children to ask questions? More teachers in this school need to be held accountable for their actions.

A traditional, old-style K-8 elementary with a dedicated faculty. The teachers seem to care deeply about the students. The math department in the older grades is probably the weakest link in the school. Horace Mann's education gave my child everything he needed to compete in a competitive high school. I would recommend this school to any parent who is looking to enroll their child. It is probably the best of the Bayonne public elementary schools. They have a very active PTA group.
