Buena Vista Horace Mann K-8 Reviews

What’s puzzling about this school is that it has been around for quite some time but lacks basic systems to ensure student success. There’s little to no support for academic mastery but the school will have a homeless shelter for the 8% of families experiencing homelessness. Parent engagement is dwindling and the best schools in sf have high parent participation. This school reflects many of the difficult challenges facing the school district as a whole: teacher turn over due to cost of living, impoverished families whose main priority isn’t necessarily getting an education. The school is a great choice if you’re not so concerned with getting a high quality education but want more social emotional support for your child. Emphasis on social emotional support seems to be the primary emphasis in California schools.

The dirty secret of BVHM is that it is no longer a premiere Spanish Immersion school but a school with students with so many problems, little learning is happening. About 1/3 of the school is homeless or experiencing trauma the school district is creating a homeless shelter on site to support families.Teachers and the administration spend most of their time managing these “problem students” that there is very little left for fostering an environment of learning and parents are leaving the school.
There are some ok teachers and great kids, but the previous principal left the school in shambles and the current one is willing to stand out on her own up against a few people and change things.
