Horace Mann School is a K-5 neighborhood school nestled in St. Paul's Highland Park community and is known for academic excellence & personal development focused on individual students. Our school is filled with students who are excited to be here – taught by teachers who transform excitement into achievement. Expectations are high from the first day of kindergarten. Our youngest students learn from positive examples set by the older students, who become leaders within our school. A high level of parent and community involvement is reflected in everything from helping teachers and tutoring to raising funds for artist residencies, field trips and many other special activities.
To provide a safe, respectful school community that builds upon our tradition of high expectations for all students; nurtures the uniqueness of each child; and ensures that families are connected, informed, and involved.
Imagine every student making a year’s growth or more academically, socially, and emotionally.
Imagine every student prepared for the next academic year, middle school, and beyond—learning how to learn and how to create achievement through effort.
Imagine a supportive school community united, learning with and from each other, to achieve this vision.
The main image portrays a "dancing child" filled with joy and full of motion. The images which appear above the child -- a book, which stands for learning and is central to everything done at Mann; a heart, which stands for the "welcoming" community of caring parents, teachers and staff at Mann; and a star, which stands for the hope of a bright future for every student -- are simple, yet powerful, representations of what defines the school and its mission / vision.
