Extremely well rounded institution. The program is challenging, and those not up to the task may find a better fit elsewhere, but for those who can handle the work, it's a great experience.

Horace Mann has been a blessing for our family. My son and daughter love it there. Their friends are delightful, there is plenty of diversity in ethnicity, curriculum, and activities. I don't think that I could criticize this school in any way. Sadly , there is a misconception that Horace Mann a high pressure and stressful place, but I haven't seen that at all.

This school has made my life so much easier. They really prepare you for high school and make the transition from Lower School to HM Middle School and Upper School a real breeze. This school is tougher than most and cater to children and families, who value work, intelligence, and motivation.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
