Why Our School

Horace Mann Elementary is the hub of the south end neighborhood, and continues to draw and keep families that are second, third or even fourth generation. Named after Horace Mann, an early statesman who promoted the concept of "public" schools for all; his name conveys the school's focus of educational opportunity for every student. Mann aims to uphold that same tradition and be a neighborhood school that is a "haven for learning."

Teacher collaboration builds a caring school community where the staff cares for the academic, social and emotional needs of every student. Represented through the support of the whole school community, Mann Elementary School is the "hope" and "anchor" of learning for all students.
