Visit Us-Nursery & Kindergarten
While this web site will help you to get to know Horace Mann School, nothing compares to a visit to our campus. Taking a tour, talking with students and faculty members, seeing classes and activities in action will all give you a sense of the excitement and energy that fills the school. If you can't come to campus sometime soon, check out the campus map of our Lower, Middle, and Upper Division campus.
We hope that you will have the opportunity to come spend some time with us and we look forward to seeing you on campus soon!

Fall Family Gathering
In addition to our Fall Open Houses, we invite you to join us for our Fall Family Gathering in October, hosted by our Office for Identity, Culture, and Institutional Equity. It is a wonderful way to learn more about the rich tapestry that exists here at Horace Mann School in an informal setting where our current families, students, faculty and administrators celebrate the diversity within our community.
Horace Mann School’s Fall Gathering has been rescheduled as a result of weather conditions from this Saturday, October 27th, to Saturday, November 10th, 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM. If you were planning to join us for an afternoon of fun on the 27th, we hope you'll still be able to attend on November 10th.
The Fall Family Gathering takes place at our Head of School's Patio and Lower Division Field. The date of the Fall Family Gathering is posted below.
Families do not need to RSVP for this event. Children of all ages are encouraged to attend. There are a myriad of carnival type activities available for kids of all ages.

LGBTQ Parents Admissions Reception
Due to weather conditions, Horace Mann School’s LGBTQ+ Parents Admissions Reception this Saturday, October 27th has been rescheduled for Saturday, November 10th, at 11:00 AM. The event will still take place at the home of our Head of School, Tom Kelly, at 258 West 246th Street, Bronx, NY. We'll make this date adjustment in the Ravenna system, and you may receive a secondary notification as a result.
