Horace Mann School is a coeducational, college preparatory independent day school for students from Nursery through grade 12. The School seeks to stretch the imagination, intellect and insight of its students while developing the moral characteristics that impart identity and purpose. We recognize as our core values: the Life of the Mind, Mature Behavior, Mutual Respect, a Secure and Healthful Environment, and a Balance between Individual Achievement and a Caring Community. These core values guide our decision-making and govern the implementation of our curriculum and programs across all divisions of Horace Mann School. In addition to its campuses in Manhattan and the Bronx, NY, the School also owns and maintains the John Dorr Nature Laboratory, a comprehensive outdoor education facility on 304 largely wooded acres in Washington, CT. One of the nation’s 10 largest independent day schools, as of September, 2020, the School enrolls 1,801 students representing 154 zip codes, with 44% self-identified students of color. For 2020-21, 15% of the students receive need-based Financial Aid. Thirty-one percent of School administrators, teachers and staff members identify as people of color. Over the past five years, the School has recorded a 97% annual retention rate for students and a 92% retention rate for all employees. The school’s recent $100 million bricks and mortar campaign has provided the Middle and Upper Divisions with newly constructed and renovated state of the art science and physical education facilities.
The Upper Division at Horace Mann School provides a demanding academic experience for more than 700 highly motivated, hard-working students. Combining rigorous courses in STEM fields with ambitious courses in the Humanities and Arts, the Upper Division curriculum allows students to build essential critical thinking skills, to delve deep into their areas of interest, and to become independent thinkers. Students and faculty take pleasure in intellectual pursuit and the understanding of their connections to the world around them. Through the school's extensive extracurricular programs, students work with faculty members to pursue their passion for service and social justice. The Upper Division is characterized by the purpose, energy, curiosity, and empathy of its students and faculty.
The Middle Division is all about its students and the important transitions facing our students: academically, socially, emotionally and physically. Highly enriched with endless possibilities, the program is both structured and flexible. Within a supportive atmosphere, we encourage our students to take risks as they involve themselves in the world around them. Preparation for enrollment in a rigorous secondary program contributes to both the daily work load, the intensity of the attention to one’s studies, the need for students to self-regulate by 8th grade, and the pacing of the academic year.
Interested candidates should submit a detailed resume, including all teaching and non-teaching related experience and cover letter to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
