Horace Mann Elementary - 21
*This school is rated about average based on how its students perform ... More on state tests compared with other schools in the state. However, test scores are only one aspect of school quality.

In most states, we show a Summary Rating which is based on multiple measures, including information like college readiness, student progress, advanced coursework, and how well a school is serving students from all racial/ethnic and socioeconomic groups.

This state does not have sufficient information for us to generate a Summary Rating, which is why we instead display the school’s Test Score Rating.
