Northwest Missouri State University


Horace Mann provides academic programs for children in preschool through sixth grades. Preschool, pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten classes are housed in the newly created Leet Center for Children and Families located within the Horace Mann school building.

University practicum students work with the master teacher to instruct children in literacy, math, science, and social studies. Daily instruction occurs in both whole class and small group settings using a variety of innovative instructional best practices.

Horace Mann develops a rich, varied, and rigorous curriculum using the Common Core State Standards and the Missouri Grade Level Expectations.

No two children learn in the same way or at the same pace. At Horace Mann, the academic program strives to meet the unique learning needs of each child. Academic programs are constantly modified and adjusted to meet these needs. Learners with special learning needs receive specialized instruction from a highly qualified teacher.
