The Bronx and New York City
Our community relations with the
Bronx and the rest of New York City are comparable to and an extension of our
relationship with the Riverdale community. Horace Mann School is the location
and supporting institution for Summer on the Hill, an academic enrichment program for
public school students in New York City. This program uses our space and
facilities and is provided with a number of supporting services. Horace Mann
hosts a holiday dinner for residents from a local battered women’s shelter and
their children. Horace Mann hosted the DAIS (Diversity Awareness in Schools)
conference. Students from other schools are able to take the
SAT and ACT exams at Horace Mann.
School has a collaborative relationship with The Bronx Center for Science
and Mathematics. From establishing connections between Horace Mann and BCSM
teachers and administrators, sharing of books, lessons, and college counseling
information, the two schools grew together as its first class of scholars
progressed toward graduation. HM teachers visited BCSM and some
BCSM students attended a week-long seminar at HM. On June 27, 2009, BCSM held its first commencement exercises in the
Gross Theatre at Horace Mann School. We will continue to host the event as long as our friends need us.
The School's resources are also shared with our colleagues and friends at KIPP Academy and De La Salle Academy.
