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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

This school has many great attributes. Among them are the teachers and many of the parents. However the parent organization is tightly controlled by a small number of people who do not represent the population of the school. Also the International Baccalaureate Program implemented at the school is a ...  Read more

Do not send your kids here-it is full of kids that are rude, mean spirited, and below average. If your child is above average, there is nothing special here for them. It was ok up until about 3rd grade, and then my kids were constantly harassed and teased-nothing was done about it. There is no "science" ...  Read more

The parental involvement at Horace Mann has really made this school great. Parents volunteer to teach a top notch art program and fundraise/volunteer to help support other great programs like drama, choir, PlayWorks, ballet folklorico, Japanese/Mandarin lessons and more. The atmosphere is safe and ...  Read more

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2012
Horace Mann Elementary School
San Jose Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
