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 of all abilities are challenged and supported within 70 minute reading classes using the principles of the Reader's Workshop. 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 Reading, students build upon their skills in the area of Language Arts, Science, Wellness Education, Art, and Social Studies. Students will also take a Computer Literacy class which focuses on helping students understand how to use hardware and software to learn and present information. Students can choose from the following musical opportunities: General Music, Choir, String Orchestra, and Band. For more information about our classes please visit our registration page.
