    This is a great school! We have had the best teachers and principal I have ever experienced. I have nothing but good things to say about this school. I am so glad that we chose to live on the north side of town because of Horace Mann. Just a very caring place for children! Principal Missy you Rock!

    There seems to be a lot of parental involvement with activities at school. Also the principal Ms.Carson-Rourke offers her time and makes herself available for questions or concerns.
