School Colors: Red and White
Vision: Every student will learn in literacy rich classrooms to become independent problem solvers using a real world relevant curriculum. Horace Mann Middle School was converted into a 6th grade only school in 2008. In 2015, Horace Mann hosted its first group of 5th grade students in the Magnet GT program and will also host 4th grade students in the Magnet GT program beginning in 2016. Horace Mann educates 6th grade students using the house concept to create schools within the school. Horace Mann currently has four houses or teams: Argonauts, Navigators, Phoenix, and Voyagers. Each house has approximately 115 students and four teachers who teach Math, English Language Arts (ELA), Science, and Social Studies.

Academic Programs Horace Mann provides a diverse curriculum that focuses on providing students with a solid foundation for success in the real world. Literacy skills are a primary focus at Horace Mann where readers and writers of all abilities are challenged and supported within 70 minute ELA class periods. Students learn foundations of Math in differentiated classrooms based on the skills they demonstrate when they arrive at Horace Mann. In addition to Math and ELA, students build upon their skills in the area of Science, Wellness Education, Art, and Social Studies. Sixth grade students will also take a World Language class which focuses on learning about different cultures from around the world with an emphasis on the Spanish language. Fifth and sixth grade students can also choose from the following musical opportunities: Choir, String Orchestra, Band and General Music.
