Horace Mann School's Nursery Division Art Show Highlights Yearlong "Emergent Curriculum" Learning
Monday, May 01, 2017
As the students in Horace Mann School's Nursery Division walked into Class KA on Friday, April 21, 2017 their jaws dropped open in surprise. Overnight, apparently, the classroom had been transformed into a cave. The transformation, crafted by Class KA's teachers, reflected the transformative education the children had experienced in that room over the previous months as they applied their curricular studies to one subject that had seized their imaginations early in the school year. Class KA's exhibit, and the imaginative offerings in every other Nursery Division classroom, were part of the annual HM Nursery Division Art Show of student work characteristic of the "emergent curriculum" philosophy that HM's Nursery Division pursues.

Despite a drizzly start to the day the event saw children from neighboring Bronx schools, including PS 37, the AmPark Neighborhood School, and the afterschool programs of the Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC), spread out across HM's Middle and Upper Division campus for a full roster of fun and educational activities.

Wednesday, February 01, 2017
"Hidden Figures" a film about three African American women mathematicians who broke race and gender barriers to contribute vitally to U.S. efforts to launch an astronaut into space, has been inspiring audiences worldwide since its December 25, 2016 release. On January 22, 2017 about 275 members of the Horace Mann School community joined the millions of viewers engaged by the stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson who worked for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) before and during the height of the space race in the 1960s. Despite the significant contributions they made to this country's space program they were largely unknown until the 2016 publication of Margot Lee Shetterly's book Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race upon which the Twentieth Century Fox film is based. Horace Mann School students, faculty members, parents and alumni gathered to see the film at NYC's AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9 movie theater at the invitation of HM's Black Parents Union (BPU) and the HM Office of Diversity.
