Dear Friends,

It is with deep appreciation and respect for Horace Mann School’s past, a genuine understanding of its present, and tremendous excitement about the School’s future that we share our ambitious plans to expand and enhance our facilities.

As an internationally recognized independent day school heralded for the strength of its academic program, its emphasis on service to the larger community in the Bronx and beyond, and its strong commitment to unity through the appreciation of differences, the School has a long tradition of continuous improvement and innovation. In keeping with this tradition, the School’s leadership has developed and advanced a plan to build and renovate facilities in areas of science, health and wellness, general instruction and student life. While these newly constructed and renovated facilities will be located on the north side of our historic Middle and Upper Divisions campus, many aspects of this dramatically improved physical plant will also benefit our students and their families at our Nursery and Lower Divisions.

This $100 million effort, HM in Motion, is the outgrowth of careful study and years of strengthening our understanding of how best to nurture our students’ growth—intellectually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically. As articulated on this webpage, these planned facility improvements—while magnificent—are designed to embrace our current academic program and afford opportunities for the thoughtful evolution of how we teach and care for our students today and tomorrow.

With construction scheduled to begin in the Fall of 2016, we hope that you will want to learn more about HM in Motion and share in our desire to see this plan wholly supported and fully funded. HM in Motion is all about inspiring, encouraging, promoting, and strengthening our students, our school, and our community.

With best wishes always,
