    "Horace Mann is the only IB school in San Jose Unified. Students are encouraged to learn 2 languages and have classes where they learn a new language. Additionally, students learn about relevant current day topics that relate to the world around them. They have opportunities to engage in topics from Science and Social Studies integrated into their weekly lessons. The students also have art and music and Computers at least 3-4x per week. Students here have a multitude of opportunities to go on field trips and they have play works during recess and lunch. Overall, teachers at Horace Mann work hard to help students learn and grow. It is an exciting place for students to be."

    "A committed community of parents, teachers and administrators have created a learning environment that touches all aspects of learning. Using the International Baccaulaureate Primary Years Programme to highlight positive character traits and learning through inquiry and discovery,, the school has been able to teach beyond the standard requirements. That, paired with weekly art lessons, school choir, Lego robotics club,, and a top notch spring musical, this downtown public school has achieved what others only dream about- teaching the whole child. I couldn't ask for more."

    "Terrible!!! This school is only concerned about the lowest common denominator-kids who do not speak English. The bullying was so bad we had to move our kids to another school. Do not send your kids here-try Hacienda or Booksin-much better test scores too."

    "I love the school!! My kids feel safe, are thriving, have a lot of confidence and great friends who respect them. Last year's Spring Musical, "Annie jr." really ignited their love for theatre and acting. Every parent has an opportunity to let their wants/needs know; all it takes is a positive attitude and a willingness to share those at the PTA's board meetings. The new principal, Ms. Vanderhorst is a very promissing new leader of this wonderful neighborhood school. She is already streamlining some processes. I am glad that my kids are growing up in a very diverse environment. If all parents realize that together we can build an even better school for our kids, by joining forces, this school can really reach it's full potential."

    "This school is so bad, my kids wanted out, but it was too late to transfer them. Before the "snowplow" moms took it over, it was ok. Working parents pretty much have no say in anything that goes on. My kids were harrassed and the admin. did nothing about it. We went to the district police, and that almost put a stop to it. Oh, and the gangs....they are everywhere! Overall, not a good experience."
