For the past decade, Horace Mann School's Center for Community Values and Action (CCVA) has promoted a service-learning model of community participation by HM students by developing Service-Learning projects that work within neighboring Bronx and other organizations. Now, as it celebrates its tenth anniversary, the CCVA is also sharing Horace Mann School's service-learning experience with other schools, as educators become more and more interested in incorporating the service-learning philosophy into their schools' community involvement. On April 21, 2017 the CCVA hosted about 75 administrators and teachers from over 30 lower, middle and upper schools in the New York tri-state area for a conference on "How to Build a Service-Learning Program." The conference included workshops and presentations by HM faculty members, students, parents on their service-learning experience, along with representatives of partner organizations of the Horace Mann School Service-Learning programs.

For the past 15 years students in Horace Mann School's tenth grade have closely examined some of this country's most pressing issues in light of the U.S. Constitution, as participants in the William K. and Marion Langfan American Constitutional Oratorical Competition. Held at the school since 2002, the 2017 "Langfan Competition" had students respond to the following question: "One of the primary responsibilities of the President of the United States is to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. At the beginning of this new presidential administration, what, in your opinion, are the most pressing Constitutional issues facing the country?" Five finalists addressed the question in speeches they delivered at a dinner at HM on May 2, 2017, attended by their family members, HM faculty and administrators, and the finalists from the 2016 competition, who served as judges at the event.

Horace Mann School students shared the many ways they are "Making Waves" in their science and technology research and studies, as an exhibit of their work at the school's 2017 Sci Tech event demonstrated. HM's Upper Division students offered poster presentations describing classroom and independent study work and research they've done in the areas of chemistry, biology, psychology, medicine, computer science and more during the 2016-2017 school year. The students explained their work to the 100-plus visitors from throughout the HM community who came to the Sci Tech event on April 21, 2017. To learn more, click the title link.
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.

Each April, since 2008, members of the Horace Mann School community and a host of Bronx and New York City organizations have gathered together to participate in HM's Annual All School Service Learning Day. The event, coordinated by Horace Mann School's Center for Community Values and Action (CCVA) and its student Service-Learning Team members, brings about a thousand people together for a day of activities that highlight the year-around service-learning pursuits with which HM students are engaged. This year's annual All-School Service Learning Day took place on Saturday, April 22, 2017. 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.
