Welcome to Horace Mann Elementary School
Distinguished Practices: Project Based Learning (PBL) and Dual Language Immersion (DLI)

A Word From Our Principal

Welcome to Horace Mann Elementary, Home of the Knights.

A staff committed to working hard and to continue the legacy of success established at Horace Mann by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. Our motto is, “Educating students with kindness, compassion, and love.”

Our distinguishing practices are Project Based Learning (PBL) and Dual Language Immersion (DLI).  Project Based Learning (PBL) is a revitalization of education for students so that they can develop intellectually and emotionally. We use real-world scenarios, challenges, and problems, and our students gain useful knowledge and skills that increase during their PBL units. Our teachers and students collaborate and come up with complex questions or problems to develop and enhance student learning by encouraging critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and self-management. The driving question for each PBL unit requires our students to make their own decisions, perform their own research, and review and revise their own and fellow students’ projects. Our PBL units start in TK and continue through 6th grade.

Dual Language Immersion (DLI) offers English and Spanish speaking students an exciting, enriching, and challenging educational opportunity. Students in DLI learn to read, write, and communicate effectively in both languages while demonstrating high levels of academic achievement. We are creating students that are bi-lingual, bi-cultural, and bi-literate for the 21st Century. Currently, we only offer a DLI kinder class.

We continue to focus on character education initiatives, 21st Century skills, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of the Common Core State Standards to increase students’ achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

We anticipate a most successful year as we support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Horace Mann Elementary School. During the course of the year, we hope that we will work together to provide the students of Horace Mann the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century.

As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

We look forward to working with you and your child.

Go Knights!

Carlos F. Perez, Ed.D.
