Creative Arts and Science Program

Horace Mann’s Creative Arts and Science Program


The Horace Mann PTO organizes and funds monthly fine arts or science based events. These monthly school wide assemblies bring high level educational performers and educators to Horace Mann for all students to attend.

An important feature of our Creative Arts and Science program is to enhance the curriculum and the student’s general learning experience. This applies both to work done in the classroom and to activities outside school. The PTO’s mission is to provide enriching programs that brings the classroom teachings to life with hands on experiences.
