    I believe that Horace Mann Middle School is great. There is caring teachers and staffs. Students will receive good education from the hands of wonderful teachers. In my years of going to Horace Mann I learned skills such as working with others and learning how the school function from having a class named office aid (student work in office as a class and get graded on how well they work parents and other office members).They also have a great computer magnet program.

    Worst school I've ever encountered. They use students to work in the office. They have outdated systems every time you go to the school they have a small desk at hallway entrance collecting your license # and you have to sign....what happened to the new systems implemented in other schools where they take your pic and ID once and they have it in the school system. This school is very outdated and under-staffed. When teachers are absent they send students to watch movies In the cafeteria. DO NOT send your child to this school please.

    Your student will do splendid at this school. If your son/daughter likes to stay active better place to be. This school contains drama classes dance and many other groups such as DFY IT. They have an excellent academic program which is the Magnet Program for Technology. The teachers are the ordinary an example to the student very hard-working.

    New principal new administration new staff new paint job. I have heard the speeches before in times past. Results speak louder than words. Preliminary indications are good but the jury is still out. Time will reveal all.
