    Not sure I’d have him go here again honestly. Do your DD and note that if your kid is smart, he’ll do great regardless. So called “top” private schools are a little over rated and rich tiger parents all drive it up but reality kicks in after graduation. Parent who mention legacy spots at top ivy ‘s are taken is somewhat correct (but my other kids got into them from normal schools just fine) but do you really want that mentality and environment just for bragging rights. Focus on your kids happiness and he will be fine. Parent’s pride usually leads the must have to go to a ‘top’ private school mentality.

    Going to Horace Mann challenged me both mentally and emotionally. I had never experienced a curriculum as stimulating prior to me going to Horace Mann. Their facilities, resources and academic opportunities have allowed me to be both socially and politically conscious of the environment around me. The students that you meet strive for nothing less than perfection. But I will admit that this yearning for perfection can be emotionally and mentally taxing on students. It can be hard to be in a school where almost everyone is a perfectionist and where the school grooms you for college from the very beginning. It can be overwhelming and tiring to have such expectations placed on you. But without the pressure put on by teachers and administration, I would not be as ready for college as I am now. Horace Mann guided me every step of the way through the college process and helped tremendously with anything I needed financially. The challenge is worth it, and so is attending Horace Mann.
    I love HM! It is an amazing school with lots of opportunities to offer to both students and faculty. However, in terms of racial diversity, there is not a lot of representation for non-Asian POCs [Blacks, Latinx, Hispanic, etc.]
