Horace Mann Arts and Science Magnet Middle School offers a unique experience for students, parents and teachers. The student population consists of students from all three local school districts. This allows Mann students to develop friendships beyond their own neighborhood. Students choose Mann because of its high academic standards and their interest in the arts or science program. There are many opportunities that enhance these areas of study. The arts and science program at Mann promotes an appreciation of individual interests and abilities and creates an atmosphere where students become motivated learners.
