Principal's Welcome

Jill BakerWelcome to Horace Mann Laboratory School! 

Undoubtedly you’ve found Horace Mann because you are looking for the best educational experience for your child.  Your child may be a preschooler entering school for the very first time, or your ‘child’ may be a college student just beginning his or her educational career.  Whatever your reasons for learning more about Horace Mann, I am excited for you to explore our website and learn more about our school. 

Horace Mann’s unique location on the campus of Northwest Missouri State University allows our students to be taught not only by teachers who are masters in their fields, but also by pre-service educators who use Horace Mann as a place in which to hone their teaching craft.  This relationship between master teacher and pre-service teacher allows our children to reap the benefits of low student-to-teacher ratio in classrooms that implement innovative best practices each and every day.

At Horace Mann we strive to provide an exemplary educational experience for each student.  Whether our students are measuring temperatures and creating data tables at our University pond, roller skating in Physical Education class, or diving into new literature during reading class, Horace Mann students are constantly learning. 

Come learn with us!
