Horace Mann School Reviews

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.]
Horace Mann gave me an experience that was more than just academics. The institution prioritizes life of the mind, which is pushing yourself to think beyond tests and quizzes. Horace Mann offers a wide variety of extra curricular activities that captures any passion or interest a teen may have. The school has varsity sports from golf to skiing, performing arts like steel drums and theatre, robotics team, visual arts like ceramics and photography, and so many student run clubs/publications.
