Parents are an integral part of the
partnership between home and school. Parents reinforce lessons learned in
school relating not only to academic subjects, but also to character, values,
and behavior. The School supports values and cultural patterns that are learned
at home, endeavoring to balance the needs of individual students and families
with those of the School community.
Mann School strives to help parents to understand and participate appropriately
in the educational experience of their children. The commitment to parent education
begins in the admissions process and continues with mailings and electronic
communications, workshops, and activities in each division. These initiatives
contribute to smooth transition for students and families at entry levels and
between divisions. Once children are
enrolled, parents are kept informed of their child’s progress through
conferences and reports, and informational evenings and orientation sessions
introduce parents to administrators, faculty and staff. Various grade-level
programs help families to understand the School’s expectations of students and
The organization through which
parents contribute to the life of the School is the Horace Mann Parents
Association. All parents and/or guardians of current Horace Mann students are members
of the HMPA.
