    "My son is starting his second year at this spanish-immersion school (last year kinder, now in 1st grade) and we have been very happy. His teachers have been sweet, understanding and effective, and he loves going to school. I am also very impressed with the focus on reading and writing this year, and have seen my son's oral and written language skills improve already. On top of the academic focus, the school has been able to retain a rich arts curriculum including a choral and instrumental music program, and a dance movement program so important for little wigglers. The principal is a caring educational dynamo who seems to know everyone's name and where everyone is at any moment. She is very focused on ensuring the teachers have the best teaching tools in their toolbox and it seems to be making a big difference."

    "My son and third child is beginning his fourth year at Buena Vista Horace Mann as a third grader. In his first grade year, Buena Vista merged with Horace Mann to become a K-8 Spanish immersion school. There were bumps in the transition, as one would expect. Those bumps feel to me to be ironing out and I feel positive about the trajectory of the school, the current administration and teaching staff. My son's teachers have been good to amazing. My and my son's experiences with his third grade teacher, new to the school this year, have been incredibly positive. I suspect that she will be one of the teachers that he looks back on as an adult with respect and appreciation. My son is not an English language learner and children who are not have not fared as well in SFUSD schools, including Buena Vista Horace Mann. Educational equity is critical to a successful school and community and I feel that important steps are being taken at BVHM to better ensure the success of English language learners and that those steps do not take away from the education of my son, but rather by having other successful classmates his education will be better."

    "A great community school in the heart of the Mission. Spanish immersion K-8. Wonderful, dedicated teachers, especially kindergarten and 1st grade. A professional, energetic principal and a vice-principal who is the heart and soul of the school. Beautiful garden and dance classes for all grades. Excellent community of parent who support the teachers and the administrative team. Kids love coming to this school."

    "I love BVHM because it is a socially conscious bilingual school attending to students' academic development with rich exposure to the arts, environment, and responsible citizenship. The wonderful, committed and talented staff nurture and challenge our children; and the families work together with staff to ensure all children have access to an education that will expand their lives and help them meaningfully contribute to society."
